The Weekender: 09.25.15

Amy Stone at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs • The Weekender: 09.25.15 on @SavvyHome

If Mercury in Retrograde is actually a thing, we can easily vouch for it over here. In our family this week, there was internet outages in two houses and one office. So much so that I feel like I’ve spent all weekend on the phone with telecom companies. And travel delays? There’s been one set of keys locked inside a car, another car breakdown and one crash (everyone is safe and sound). Since Mercury will supposedly affect our travels and communications until October 9th, we better all take a staycation.

All this to say that I didn’t blog on Thursday and Friday (oops, sorry!) because I haven’t had internet at home. So I made a point drive to the country house to disconnect a little and enjoy the great outdoors this weekend: hiking and golfing mostly. So here’s a very late (and short) weekend post. Back to reality tomorrow—fingers crossed that internet will be back at home. Don’t forget to watch the supermoon eclipse tonight!

    Wishing you all the best luck with the internet! It’s hard to disconnect these days, so it’s good you took advantage of the situation!
