June To-Do List

Wow, it’s June! The girls will be out of school soon and the older one is graduating. We’ll be in L.A. mid month and I have a list of things I want to do when we are not packing up my daughter’s apartment. A visit to the Wear LACMA shop tops this list. Dani Shapiro’s Hourglass is already on my Kindle for the flight, and when we’re back in NYC I’ll be first in line to see Sofia Coppola’s readaptation of The Beguiled, which opens June 23. Oh, and new tools and a basket for the garden from the GOOP shop would be nice.

  • The wooden handle garden tools have caught my eye, and LACMA appears to have quite the selection.
    Congratulations to the graduate, the dad-grad and the mom-grad! In this day and age, it’s definitely a family accomplishment! Enjoy every special minute!

  • Yes, I am in the line to see Sofia Coppola’s version of ‘The Beguiled’! I am great admirer of Ms Coppola’s work and her personal style.

  • I love June – a month of promise of the summer to come. Dani Shapiro was at our local bookstore giving a reading of her book, and I got the date wrong. Planning on reading it on my long flight on Saturday. Can’t wait to see The Beguiled, and the gardening tools and basket are beautiful. Congratulations on your daughter’s graduation, and I agree, it’s a family achievement these days.

  • Those gardening tools look beautiful and useful (the best things are) and thanks for reminding me about that book. I also remember the whirlwind of university (Canadian here) graduations, the attendant chaos of the physical aspects like packing, moving, driving, unpacking but what I most remember was the joy of the commencement ceremony. It took me a little by surprise actually, how much joy. Each daughter in her own way was quite ready to be done with student life and on to the next life adventure, with that veneer of blasé that the end of anything can bring when you are young. To stop and celebrate (in such a formal way with gowns and speeches) what an accomplishment they had achieved, surrounded by loved ones, was transcendent for all of us. Enjoy.

  • I’d love to read your LA list! I’ll be there for the month of July and would appreciate suggestions.
