A Sweet Escape

The past few days have been punctuated with a grey, dreary drizzle, and this home in the Bahamas by Tom Scheerer looks like the most perfect place to escape. It seems to have all the necessary elements for a relaxing getaway...

A charming backyard in which to linger over a meal and a bottle of wine with friends.

A lovely fireplace by which to warm yourself should the night air get chilly.

In the morning, you will have a plethora of straw hats and towels to choose from on your way to the beach.

When you return to the house in the afternoon, you can toss your iPod and keys on the console.

In the living room, you can finish another chapter in your book before heading upstairs to the bedroom.

A most perfect place to take a nap.

Once you are rested, you can grab clothes out of the dresser,

And head into the bathroom, to soak in the tub as you prepare for your evening company to arrive again.

Just a Note

You might be an Internet addict when... you discover Panera Bread closes earlier than you'd expected on a Friday night, so you decide to try to get the Wi-Fi signal from your car before leaving. Yes, I made E sit with me for 30 minutes on Friday while I got online before the WiFi signal was shut off by the staff!

As many of you know, E & I have been in the midst of a move over the last few months. I am happy (and rather embarrassed) to say that we finally moved into an apartment last week, which we will have for the next six months.

As happens during moves, I am at the mercy of companies waiting for installation of services, and it is absolutely killing me to wait for an Internet connection. I am suppose to have service starting this upcoming Friday, but until then, my posting (and commenting) may continue to be a little sporadic. Just wanted to let you know where I've been this last week and why I may be rather absent this one as well.

I have decided that I am hopeless without my computer and Internet access; I feel as useless as a typewriter is in modern society without them. I am, however, still enamored with the idea of typewriters, so I figured that, for now, I'd leave you with some of my favorite typewriter images as of late.
