You’d think that by now, being a native Washingtonian, I’d be immune to yucky weather. Not so, I guess. This weekend was rainy, drizzly, sprinkly, blustery and just plain wet. It’s weekends like these that make us really wonder why we haven’t installed a fireplace yet. So we stayed in, took a break from house projects and pretty much did nothing. And this is what the house looks like after an entire weekend of doing nothing:
