we made it through thanksgiving!!! yippee! i have never appreciated my life and my apartment so much, after doing the “thanksgiving shuffle” we all do. if i was hungover last monday, i am all-but-dead today! actually, not really. i am so happy to be back. i’m excited to decorate for christmas, and my gigs are only fun gigs from here on out. this thanksgiving was … Continue reading monday.
anyone else hungover? and it’s not even the holidays. i haven’t even begun to eat painfully unhealthy food, sleeping late, staying up late, laying around in a turkey coma. all that stuff is still yet to come, and my body feels like it has already been abused. i need two days in bed, and then i’d be just fine. but that’s not how life goes. … Continue reading monday.
what can i say. it’s my day off. but i’m working until 3:00. i’m sorry ~ i thought a day off meant not going to work? oh, and i have to be, like, talented and charming today, too. bathed and kinda pretty, even. oh no. it’s all too much. one of my favorite singers is coming to the folly tonight and i cannot go see … Continue reading friday.
today’s artistic moment is brought to you by… PESTO. i have a newly created dish in the oven and it is smellin’ so good. butternut squash filled with italian farro, mushrooms, veggies, san marzano tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, tossed with homemade pesto, and covered with parmesan cheese. it’s gonna be a good day. a real good day. the pesto i made this morning has mostly basil, … Continue reading wednesday.
it’s time. it’s time to brush the dust off the “white christmas” dvd. watching it right now, as if i have all the time in the world. love it. too soon? not this year. i’m ready for the holidays. i’m ready for snow and family and christmas parties and good food. i want this semester to be over, and fast. before i lose my mind. … Continue reading tuesday.
what a week. zoicks. trying to find something uplifting and artistic to write about, and i am reading this really great book, called, “traveling light”. it uses psalm 23 as a reminder of all the ways we can find peace in our lives. i just read a section on the “sabbath”, and how important it is to take one day off a week. although i … Continue reading saturday.
terrible day. what is a terrible day, exactly? what makes us feel like it deserves that harsh, astringent word ~ terrible? not a bad day. a terrible day. wouldn’t a terrible day be if you, or a loved one, had a heart attack? or died? or your husband left you? when i think about my father dying, i don’t think ~ “that was a terrible … Continue reading wednesday.
you KNOW how i feel about tuesday by now. greatest day EVER. like my new color scheme? it’s my artistic thing of the day. i hope the color makes you feel…caffeinated. wordpress likes to make it difficult to have the look you want without paying for it. i understand ~ it’s a biz. but i don’t have $68 just to make my blog look cute. … Continue reading tuesday.
oh and it is so sweet. nothing on the calendar. the house is quiet. hub is on the chaise lounge with his coffee and his book. he is so cute. so happy ~ home all day with plans of baking and cooking. and, on top of all that lovely stuff, i just found out that olive oil helps LOWER your cholesterol. my doc told me … Continue reading saturday!!!!
