There are these huge hideous shrubs that line our East-facing windows. They’re so ghastly that I suspect they’ve never been trimmed in all their plant-lives. The one thing that’s pleasant, besides being an excellent window shade while it still has leaves, are the birds that perch outside our window. It’s usually a crowd of overweight sparrows, but occasionally we get a cute little Chickadee or a bright red Cardinal.

The part I’m really digging now is a corner of our dining room with the newest addition of our house: Devin’s grandmother’s former sheet music shelf. It used to house piano music while Devin’s grandmother was still alive, and for a while it was banished to the Edmonds’ garage for being useless and taking up space. Now it has a new home, ours, and it pays its rent by shelving all our miscellaneous crap (as well as look very handsome)!

Other favorites: Keroppi frog pillow and our home-made bookshelf.

    Yaay Keroppi pillow. There were so many sparrows on and near the U of M’s campus. I miss them. Nowadays I see pigeons and a squirrel that is far too socialized and has been trying to figure out a way to move into our kitchen.

      But the kitchen is so warm! and seriously, there’s no way that you could eat all that food by yourself. What’s a fifth roommate gonna matter?
