SO WE FINALLY ordered a projector, which arrived just in time for the weekend. We spent the entire weekend watching films projected huge on a blank wall, some of them flipped backwards before we could figure out the settings to flip them the right way around. We ate fattening foods and too many sea salt crackers with soft cheeses and slept in and I finished another book, which, as you know, is always bittersweet for me, becoming attached as I do when absorbed in a good book. We drank wine and lit the fire and said things like, when this is all over, we’ll get in the car and drive to all the castles in the area. Or: when this is all over, we’ll spend a few nights in Edinburgh, eating in all our favourite restaurants and visiting all our old haunts. When all of this is over. Perhaps you’re right, maybe things will never be the same again, but for now, there’s hope.
This week’s links include an airy lakeside house and residential towers in north of Paris; a recipe for Black Sesame Cherry Rose Pie; ruffled blouses and high-rise jeans, and much, much more.
