Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley February 17, 2018

Hello! Happy weekend to you all. I’m busy hosting a party for a bunch of 14 year old girls today. They’re so cute, they just want to go to In & Out Burger, and then eat cupcakes and “hang out together for a few hours”. Ha! It’s a nice change from all those years of finding a venue, making party bags, buying balloons, blah blah blah, all those details that go into planning a kid’s birthday party when they’re young.

On Sunday, I’m working on a few little projects around the house, mostly organization stuff, all those corners that seem to be out of control and need attention. Also headed to the theater in a neighboring town where they’re showing old black and white movies. Sunday’s screening is The Philadelphia Story with Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. Have you seen it? I haven’t in years, but that duo is one of my favorites. Pass the popcorn!

  1. This was another great read. Thank you. I’m sorry but I just can’t let it go…….. remotest? beaches. I’m pretty sure that’s not a word. I know you didn’t use it but I’m shocked it wasn’t caught before print.

    • I looked it up! Turns out it IS a word! Still sounds funny to me, so I used “most remote” instead :)

  2. What do you think about the claims of the limewash paint? I’ve seen homes with peely limewash so I’m hesitant to take the plunge. I love this look!
