Skills for Surviving Home Ownership

If you follow apartment therapy, you may have already seen this post. But just in case, I wanted to pass along this handy dandy list of 47 Skills You Need to Survive Homeownership from This Old House. Even if you’re not a homeowner, there are lots of tips here than can be useful in any living situation, like dealing with a clogged sink or a seized lock and how to locate a stud or pick an interior lock.

Hey, I learned another new word last week!


{via other-wordly}



And now it makes sense that Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur is named as such. If you’re ever on a drive along California’s PCH and happen by Big Sur, I’d recommend a stop here. Nepenthe is a rustic restaurant which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is a great casual place to stop and relax. It’s lovely to sit outside with some appetizers and a glass of wine, and just drink in the view.

Per Nepenthe’s site:

Perched on the edge of the continent, high above the Pacific, watched over by the majestic Santa Lucia Mountains sits Nepenthe Restaurant. This Mecca of poets, artists, travelers and vagabonds has served guests for sixty years, opening for business on April 24, 1949.


Come on now, how great does that sound?

Birthday and Getting My Goat On

Oy, it’s birthday time again. Dang, that came back around fast!

I’m definitely at that age where I don’t want to organize any hoopla about getting older. Ignoring it sorta seems better for my state of mind. BUT I’m pretty excited to use birthday time as an excuse to finally check out the goat dinner at the always delicious Tar & Roses this weekend. I’m really looking forward to trying goat for the first time and all the yummalicious sides that Chef Andrew is guaranteed to whip up with my peeps who were down to their goat on with me. I suspect people around us might groak at us.

Oh, did I tell you I learned a new word? Groak.



I hope I used that correctly. I thought it was hilarious because I’m sure I groak all the time. But it’s sort of a pitiful sounding word, isn’t it? Although, I’d bet I would look pitiful as I groaked at a table of happy people gorging on a roasted goat feast… haha.


Anywho, I hope everyone has a great and delicious weekend, as well!

xo, kero
