12. weekend to-do's


  1. stay warm and comfy in my new sweater dress from brass. there may currently be subzero temperatures and snowbanks twice my size in boston, but i can still look pulled together for date night.
  2. reserve my tickets to see kazuo ishiguro speak at harvard book store next month. ishiguro wrote two of my all-time favorite novels, "never let me go" and "the remains of the day". i can't wait to hear him discuss his new book "the buried giant".
  3. bake some homemade bread. there is nothing better on a cold day than the scent of bread in the oven. since i will pretty much put miso in anything, this recipe sounds about perfect.
  4. participate in the new ica reads book club. this program connects contemporary literature with art currently being exhibited at the museum. i love the idea of a city-wide discussion and exploration of the themes that these works have in common.


  1. create some floral eye candy. i have been filling the house with flowers and plants in an attempt to keep things bright and cheery. i've been eyeing a pair of these mini ohkubo flower arrangement shears and plan on snagging a pair to help me create some new floral sculpture in the house.
  2. drink some craft beer. local brewery night shift brewing recently opened a new tap room in medford with tons of seating and free tours. their flavor combinations are clever and always tasty. can't wait to get a pint of their bean porter!
  3. start a new book. a thoughtful client gave me sarah thorton's book, "seven days in the art world" this past week. this collection of narratives is set in different cities all over the world and explores the institutions that make up our contemporary art world. going to cozy up on the sofa with a home-made earl grey tea latte and read up.
