Scenes from a Weekend

I spent all of Sunday afternoon cleaning. Mainly my room because of all the spaces in this house it seems the most regularly neglected. And then, it looked so nice and I felt so refreshed that I decided to try and snap a few photos to share here because as much as I enjoy home interior posts, it's a wonder I never contribute any of my own.

So I tried.
But then the baby woke up and one by one the boys filtered in and before I knew it it looked just like it usually does. Scattered with random toy parts, and new drawings and unsightly kid things.
And, well, I gave up.

But it was nice while it lasted. Next time I guess I'll have to be a little quicker with the camera.

Here, two photos from my failed tour. The highlight being the postcard of William Burroughs pretending to stab Jack Kerouac that I've had framed since college.

The rest, I suppose will have to wait.


  1. I can't believe you have a framed photo of William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. That is awesome! In high school I exclusively read beat literature. Still to this day, I don't have one single girlfriend that enjoys beat reading. Well, I guess my sister has read some Kerouac. But there are not many women out there interested in beatnik authors, probably even less who've read Bukowski.

    1. I was really into beat literature in high school too. I think, it's harder for me to read and relate to now but those stories certainly hold a special place in my heart. And, Bukowski was an early love for me as well. I have lots of his books. His cover art is still some of my favorite. Thinking I should dig them out and revisit a few now that we're talking about it.

      That is, whenever I find spare time to read again :(

  2. hellllp me de-burb my house. xo
