News of (a very small corner of) the world (small updates)

Hi Everyone.  All 5 of you.  So much love for reading my little corner of the world.  I thought I would take this Feisty Friday (what we call it at work!) and update you all on the goings-on at Living Analog.

First things first.  My husband is a lot of amazing things and one of them is amazingly creative.  He just finished up recording a new song (that he wrote).  It boggles my mind that this person I live with CAN WRITE A WHOLE SONG.  And sing it, and play all the instruments that goes into it.  He’s not a one man army, he gets a lot of input from his band mates.  So if you have any inclination and because I don’t have the capacity right now to figure out how to upload this thing, check out his band blog at www.grandbeautymusic.com.  The song is called “You Go Blind”.

I mean, how can you not love a guy who can write music and who hangs out with his dog, making sure no marauding kitty-cats come and invade their territory?

JT AND MONKEY

Next up: Cameron.  Cam the Man, foster dog extraordinaire is still hanging out at Living Analog.  We’ve taken him to be famous on TV (featured on KSDK’s Sammy’s Stars) and countless adoption events.  Last week my sister and I took him to see Roman Holiday on Art Hill.  He was a perfect gentleman and charmed all the ladies in line for LuLu’s Food Truck and then settled in and watched the movie as quiet as a little mouse.  He’s come out of his shell so much in the few months he’s been back in our house and I really, really, really want him to find a forever home soon so they can enjoy this goofy love of a dog.  Unfortunately most people are really charmed by him and then put off by his age.  Any suggestions you guys have on this matter would be greatly appreciated.  I’m kind of at a loss as to what to do — so this weekend we’ll be at the Sunday adoption event at Local Harvest in Kirkwood if anyone wants to meet the Silver Fox.

CAMERON AT ART HILL

And last but not least — a new project!  There is a room at the back of our house, directly off the kitchen that I have never, ever showed on our floor plan.  Kind of like it doesn’t exist.  But it does.  And it’s crazy town in there.  So when Apartment Therapy started posting about the August Style Cure, I thought it might be a good kick in the rear to sign up and get our back porch back on track once and for all.

It’s bad.

BACK PORCH

Which means it can only get better from here!

The first assignment for the Style Cure was a sort-of style diagnostic.  JT and I both took one.  It was kind of hard!  It’s not everyday you sit down and pin point exactly what it is you like and why you like it.

JT decided my style is “British and fancy”.  I hit back with his style being “Nerdy and fancy”.  The main take-away is that at the end of the day we both prefer quality over quantity and want a relaxing, inviting space. So that’s what we’ll be working on for the next month.  Anyone else doing the Style Cure?  Have a great weekend regardless!  Cheers – CT

  1. Love the new song and can’t wait to hear more about the Style Cure!

  2. Really love the new song! The lyrics are great. Hope The Silver Fox finds a forever home soon. Can’t wait to see the transformation of your porch. Ikea trip in the future? Already miss living so close to one.

  3. So if you were sitting in the spot where you took that picture from on Art Hill, I was watching the film that very same night about 20 feet away from you all. How weird.

    • Hi Nick! STL is a little big town like that. Whenever I go to an event like that, I always think I will bump into someone that I know. That night we didn’t see anyone so I guess we were 20 feet too far away! It was great weather for a movie night in the park, that’s for sure. Cheers – CT
