Willy Nilly Friday

This is my first Willy Nilly Friday post. Hope I'm doing it right. Five random things. I love random!

1. The weather has been truly gorgeous this week. Sunny and mostly clear (although VERY hot).

2. Looks like the garden is just about finished for this season. The heat really got to the tomatoes and dill this year, and the squash never even got started. About the only thing still going strong is the basil— it's parched, but keeps right on growing. I need to make some pesto.

3. What we've been spending all our time on lately. Finally getting bookshelves in the study! Nearly floor-to-ceiling, and white, white, white!

4. And some storage units in the craft/guest room. Also new carpet in both rooms. It's taken us five years (since we first moved into this house) to get it done, but now that we've made a start it seems to be going along pretty smoothly.

5. The Rotunda, University of Virginia, Charlottesville.

Designed by Thomas Jefferson, begun in 1822 and completed in 1826, shortly after his death. Charlottesville has been in my thoughts a lot this week. Naturally, I guess. The university campus is so lovely, and I hate to think of any violence taking place there. This shot was taken quite a while back, during a visit in the summer of 2003. I like to believe it still looks the same.

  1. Welcome to one of my favorite memes! Loved your that's a great amount of storage! Love it! Loved seeing the Rotunda, and also your garden. Hope you have an amazing week, and hope to see you here again!

  2. Let's just pray that the historic mansions of the Civil War era aren't targets of demolition!!! I think I'd denounce my citizenship if that ever came about.

    Love all your Willy Nilly fives today! And glad you found Tanya's site. She's a doll, and a great hostess.

  3. Very pretty sky in your opening photo. Have a great weekend!

  4. Welcome to Friday and fun. Hope you come back again and again.

  5. Bookshelves! Wonderful!
    Pretty scene in the first photo
    Have a great week-end!

  6. Welcome to Friday Fun! Love the bookshelves and the storage in your craft room. I love pesto! Beautiful sky. Have a great weekend.
