I adore pandora. It opens my eyes and ears to new music and artists. Always a little surprise in the speaker. But lately it has been adding some crazy stuff. And not good crazy stuff.
Back to space and furniture. I’ve been feeling so scattered lately. I’ve been at a standstill regarding projects because my space just hasn’t been right. I can’t quite describe the feeling, but it hasn’t been conducive to getting anything done. Now my environment makes sense and feels calm so I can get to work. Thank goodness.
I planned our dinner menus this week. I’m sticking to them. Linguine with clams tonight. All part of my plan to streamline, organize, simplify.
The Oscars were on in the backround last night. I knew no one. I didn’t even recognize Molly Ringwald. And I haven’t seen any of the movies. The last movie I saw in the theater was The Hangover. Before that I think it was We Own The Night. Before that A Night at the Museum (the first one.) Or maybe the other way around, but you get my drift. I could probably count on my hands the movies I have seen in a theater the last 7 years. Add The Constant Gardener, 7-Mile, Miracle, and I think that’s all of them. But I digress… I only watch The Oscars to see the gowns. Who cares about movies when there is silk and lace and taffeta to watch? That’s also why when I was little I watched Gone With The Wind with a notebook, taking notes on all of Scarlett’s gowns. Odd? Maybe.
I’m learning I really like birds. Except when they swoop near me. We have a lone bird who sits on our patio column. No matter how stealthily I walk out there at night after watering the dog bowls, Birdie swoops down and my heart starts racing, the adrenaline kicks in, and it takes all I have not to run into the house. So, other than Birdie, I want more bird stuff in my life. Not real birds though. So if you start seeing lots of birds here that’s why.
Just do it. Sometimes that’s the bottom line.
I do a fair amount of fill-in forms for work. Twelve spaces is not enough room for a full name. If that’s all we had all the time I’d go around as Elizabeth St. Well, since no one actually callls Eizabeth I guess I’d be Lizzi Steenb. Nice. More room please!
Cleaning yesterday I found all my CDs. I put them in a safe place (the ottoman) and had forgotten about them. That is a fairly regular occurence in our house. Too safe. Anyway, I hit the musical jackpot!
Any advice for getting a toddler to sleep in his own room? Without the wimper–cry–hiccup–out–of–breath–hiccup–jumbo–tears–hiccup–sniffle routine? Much appreciated.
I have some gift card money to a salon/spa here (got my hair cut there a few weeks ago – love it!) and was planning to get a warm earth pedicure, but now I’m leaning toward a customized facial. What do you think?
You know when you see someone after a few weeks and all of a sudden they look awesome and you look at yourself and you can honestly say you don’t look anything close to awesome? Not a great feeling.
What is it about dogs that they need to go after cats? Even cats that are outside, across the street, sunning on someone else’s driveway.
Monday feels so much better than Sunday, so that’s how this is post thing is going to go.
How was your weekend? I hope it was delightful! And I hope your week is lovely!
