John often has great suggestions for things that I could blog about. Sometimes I take his advice. Sometimes I don't. When I don't, it is either because I am being stubborn or I am too lazy. John's work life is pretty demanding so he doesn't have as much free time as I do, but there was a time before we moved into our house when he briefly had a blog of his own. He started A Small Garden Obsession when we had about a foot of snow on the ground in December of 2009. At the time his only gardening space was a 12' x 16' terrace which he turned into a really magnificent container garden. Anyhoo, the snow melted, we went off to Thailand, then we bought a house and John had a lot less time to think about keeping up a blog.
Recently John took a bunch of photographs and gave me all kinds of ideas for blog posts. So this post and the one following, while they don't strictly count as guest posts, are inspired by his eye (and his love of Lucy).
|Lucy loves a fire.|
|Me with bedhead.|
After my post about beverages you may be wondering what is in the mug.
Hot cocoa, with a big "handcrafted" Williams-Sonoma marshmallow.
|Lucy wants to wish you all Happy Holidays!|
