Lauren's Harry Potter print
During all this, Lauren was fairly sick for a week and a half, which allowed us the time for a lot of the TV and movie viewing. Her last full day here, she and I watched 'Sense & Sensability' and 'The Help' while munching on treats and drinking tea from an honest and truely tea pot, which she'd wanted us to find from the first day she's come home and which we finally did find on her second to last day here.
And, since he also had a month off, David decided to buy new office furniture and to move his office, at my suggestion, from the bedroom it currents occipies to the hardly-ever-used 'living room'. Some of you may remember this as the staging area for Lauren's dorm things before she left for UCSanta Cruz. The plan is to turn the bedroom into a work area for me with a bed, making it a kind of guestroom as well, which we've never had. Photos to come should this project ever actually get completed.
