Current house project was started today, not really on purpose. I got my homework done and decided to tap one the bricks and the whole wall moved. I asked Peter to come over and help me and we got the wall of bricks down in a short amount of time. Now I need to repair the wall and move the pellet stove to the corner. Check out the awesome wallpaper and we found a brick that says Bangor, ME on it. :)

“It’s not about passion. Passion is something that we tend to overemphasize, that we certainly place too much importance on. Passion ebbs and flows. To me, it’s about desire. If you have constant, unwavering desire to be a cook, then you’ll be a great cook. If it’s only about passion, sometimes you’ll be good and sometimes you won’t. You’ve got to come in every day with a strong desire. With passion, if you see the first asparagus of the springtime and you become passionate about it, so much the better, but three weeks later, when you’ve seen that asparagus every day now, passions have subsided. What’s going to make you treat the asparagus the same? It’s the desire.”
- Thomas Keller
I do like the new light I made for the dining room. :)

Happy Mother's Day! I am lucky to have an amazing mother. :)

This weekend I got to watch Peter graduate from the University of Maine. I am so proud of him.
