Cucumber Water. I'm trying to be a little healthier and drink more water, and I've finally tricked myself into liking it. Cucumber slices make my least favorite drink taste delicious, and they also look darn cute, don't you think?
The Chalkboard Wall. One whole wall in our dining room is chalkboard. I'm really loving what is going on there right now. There's pretty much no better way to welcome your guests to the table than with a good ol' Wendell Berry quote about community.

It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves
