Curiosity Killed the Cate

Look at this completely awesome staircase/bookcase! Looks kinda steep, but otherwise, perfect.

“When Leonie and Rhodri added the upstairs, the architect proposed a handsome and clever book-lined staircase to house their formidable combined libraries in one streamlined space. “It’s just brilliant because the way it’s conceived, you can walk by it and not even notice it,” Leonie says. “So it’s like this fabulous surprise.”

I heart water aerobics February 10, 2008

Filed under: Family — catherineeliza @ 12:44 pm
I started attending a water aerobics class at the YMCA with my mom. I decided to go just to be supportive to her and have some good mother/daughter bonding time. Wouldn’t you know, I’m addicted now? I really do love it. Everything they say about the benefits of exercising in water are true. It simultaneously makes your cardio workout easier (no impact) and harder (constant resistance), and on top of that, you can’t really tell that you’re sweating! Also, I like to pretend that this will lead to a late, great synchronized swimming career for me. Then again, I’m pretty sure they don’t allow floatation belts in the Olympics.
