have a great weekend

The weather is fantastic here today. I’m more than a little bit work weary, but getting strangely energized for the weekend ahead. I think it was the afternoon run I got in yesterday – finally there is just enough light to make a decent sized loop around the park before dark. Nothing compares to running outside – not just for the change of scenery, but for the change in everything. Every mile is different, the wind shifts, the smells change, the views open up or narrow in. Glorious. Spring might just return again.

I’m going to ride this wave of energy out this weekend as far as I can. I’m hoping to continue the momentum on my curtain project – although the toughest part is this final part. And I’m in full-on near-constant daydream mode on our house project. I have to focus on the garage and site plan enough to get the zoning package together (and bring the neighbors on board), but this springlike weather has me craving the days when we’ll have more light spilling into the house, and a better connection to a small, but well-planned courtyard space. Here are just a few shots from the really full folder of inspiration photos I’ve been collecting for ages.

I hope you have a great weekend – and maybe some window sash opening weather as well!
