An Evening at Home

I love those day-in-the-life posts that sometimes gain momentum on the blogs. But my day between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. looks pretty much like you would imagine - I sit in front of my computer, and occasionally get to chat with co-workers about fun projects. I like my job a lot, but it's not much to look at :) Evenings make up my favorite hours of day. Reading, cocktails, dinner (and some laundry - there's always laundry, yes?).

Here's my living room on a normal night. Floppy couch cushions, shoes, a library book, and Peter's lap top perched on the arm rest so he can see up-to-the-minute fantasy baseball stats (or something equally lame entertaining).

This pretty thing above is gin and soda with muddled cucumber, basil and lime juice. We had these slightly more fancy drinks because, yay, it's Thursday! My favorite sort of occassions.

We're heading to the Berkshires this afternoon, so I did laundry last night and packed while I was folding. Do you ever do that? Multitasking at its best. Though you do end up wearing the same things that you wore the week before, ha!

For dinner, Peter made a marinade for tuna steaks with ginger, garlic, sesame oil and probably some other awesome stuff. I made rice with green beans, topped the tuna with some pickles red onions (an amazing addition, if I do say so myself), and threw together a salad. We finally watched the Mad Men finale (kind of a downer, am I right?!). After we had to watch an episode of the Larry Sanders Show with coffee ice cream to cheer up :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Perhaps there's a gin cocktail in your future. Because yay, it's Friday!


  1. i love these kinds of posts too! this particular evening looked wonderful - cocktails, dinner, library books... fantastic!

  2. I love this slice of life post! Did you see that the June/July issue of HGTV Magazine features your sofa on page 95?

    1. Ann, I didn't see that yet! I'll have to steal it from my Mom next time I'm home. It is a great little couch!
