    My rash guard doesn’t have a hood, otherwise I rock the same beach outfit as you!

    Alas, there’s no video.

    But your beach gear is awesome. Like +100 levels of awesome.

    Get well soon, Portia the Porch Kitty (cuz porch/Portia? No? Porsche?) Also, the whiteness of your legs is impressive – like glow sticks without the snap! Looking forward to seeing the floors and you & Pauls dancing skills are amazing!

    Best wishes for porch cat-I lost my feral girl to cancer not long ago and I have to restrain myself from looking for her through the sidelite everytime I pass by the front door. Love the video-Dancing!! What a relief it must be to reach this point. Everything empty and ready to be made fabulous is cause for dancing. I can’t seem to post you to anything. What happened to the pinterest links? If we can’t expose your brilliance to the World how will they find you? Enjoy the beach and exposure to a teeny tiny bit of sunshine would probably not result in anything too disastrous.

    Good luck with your porch kitty.

    Fun fact, no good deed goes unpunished. I take our ‘neighborhood’ cat to the vet as needed. Most of the neighbors feed him, but no one else takes him to the vet. For flea meds and fights, granuloma or whatever. Some vets won’t treat, since not ‘mine’. So fine, he is mine, treat him. They registered him to the local govt as mine, and now the local G wants more records and threatened fines. I explained, multiple times. In writing. Not mine. Finally I said he disappeared [under the porch sofa, but whatever], so they’d leave me alone. Not sure what vet I will take him to next time.

      Hey, under the couch is “disappeared” . . . “lost” . . . “gone” . . . choose your synonym! 🙂 Thank you for having a kind heart. You don’t even have to like cats to be able to look out in the world and see what/whom everyone else is overlooking. Thank you for having those kind of eyes.

    Unfortunately, I can’t pull up the video and I see I’m not the only one. Would love to see it. Hope your elderly porch cat survives and thrives. What happened to her?

    How did you marry a guy who dances (PLUS learns the routines) in addition to being a genuine 100% handyman who loves doing remodels ALMOST as much as YOU do — if that is possible!) You BOTH are certifiably AMAZING!! LOVE all your kitchen redo as well as the rest of the house. Will it EVER be finished. NO!, you say, nor should it be!!

    Portia is so lucky to have you, and you are VERY smart to keep your skin out of the sun.

    and……….just because. You know the words in between. Fun to see your victory dance – and a 2 minute redux of the wedding grand ballroom slam.

    Speaking of GFT’s – I bought an 1850’s Rococo Revival gilt overmantle mirror (62″wX38″h) in nearly perfect condition off OfferUp (Atlanta) a couple of weeks ago for $40!!! I thought of you – and are secretly happy you prefer Renaissance Revival, wood tones. I questioned the lady who was selling the mirror as to how she arrived at the price – “we sell tractors, not this here stuff,” she said, “just want it out of the way before it got broke.” Happy to oblige.

    Post more. Often.

    Ah, the shorthand of life. Wished to hear more on Portia about how she needed stitches, but beach calls! So who watched kitties? Also, dancing in the emptied kitchen – marvelous! Can’t wait to see the after!

    Sometimes life folds in on you, like a suffocating wet wool blanket.
    Our home is shrouded in smoke. Toxic wildfire smoke.
    It’s been that way for almost 7 weeks.
    No relief until October, when the rains come, they say.
    I miss the sky, riding my horses, walking my dog.
    Thelonious Monk doesn’t hunt mice outside anymore.
    He sits by the window & watches the hummingbirds with detachment.
    We share the same last name…and…apparently a similar mood for now.
    Take care friend. I hope porch kitty recovers and so do you.

      How are you doing now-any improvement? These fires are a part of the heating of the planet and the inaction,even action in the tragically wrong direction (reducing regulations of emissions,drill baby drill and pipe lines all over the place including running right on top of the largest freshwater aquifer in the U.S. ) gallops along as the poles show a melt level increasing at a startling rate. Increased volcanic activity,poor Hawaii…and the rain is endless here in Virginia. I hope we are a smarter species(than we seem at present) in terms of preserving a future for the little kids who depend on us to protect them from harm. There are solutions to dirty fuels and they will create wealth and health but there is a definite tipping point and so many seem to be indifferent to what that moment in time will bring.

    Can you give us an update on the Webster babe? I worry for him. Also, I have always viewed your posts from my email on my iphone but the last 3 of them I can’t see comments. I only see the words “comments” from the short view window when it comes in email but once I open the email, there is no “comments” to click on. Even clicking on the “comments” from the short view email won’t take me to comments. I’m on my PC now and I can see them, but can anyone tell me if they are having the same problem, and if so Victoria, can you look into it to fix it. I love your posts, but enjoy the comment section almost as much again.

    Your videos with Paul make me wonder, “do they dance together at home all the time?” because I also have many musician friend couples who make music together and I also wonder, “do they sing together at home all the time?” I hope you, and they, do!

    My husband and I built a small event venue on our acreage and we frequently have to move heavy furniture around. We have found these awesome little 3 caster triangle shape dollies that work wonders for relocating stuff. The 2 of us can move our pool table around without breaking a sweat with these babies! Here’s a link for them at Northern Tool but we have also purchased from Amazon. They are available in different sizes & there are other styles as well. https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200438215_200438215
