I caught up on some framing last weekend and rearranged the wall behind my sofa yet again. I'm really loving my apartment these days. Perhaps all the recession talk has taken the shine off the idea of buying, or maybe it's because I don't anymore think of all the things I need to do when I look around. I always wondered if I'd hate being done. But I don't. I love it. And, of course, you're never completely done. New layers will be added and taken away. But it feels, right now, that all that can happen at a gentler pace.
