SHOP sale

first friend

I am so happy that you called

( coat )

I have trouble with coats. I don't often find affordable options that I like. when I do, I have a few times not ended up liking them for very long

a bad record

but, I think this one might do it.. its comfortable, is a nice soft wool, and I love the cut.. I picked it up this weekend, on a walk around downtown.

waiting for the man of the house to return. one cat naps, one cat is crying to be let back outside. I helped myself to some oregano from my neighbor's small but perfect herb garden- destination is pasta sauce. penne + sauce with herbs + squash + wine

a pretty lady hand-delivered a homemade pie to me today.. it was a very, very pleasant surprise

I'm looking forward to pie for breakfast-- one of my most favorite things!


too trendy, or really awesome? they're alpaca/wool & look so comfortable

( received )

a friend gave me two gifts- great smelling soap, and a mini salt dish + spoon

I wrapped the soap in breathable fabric so that it can serve as an air freshener for now..

thank you, Christine

How Nice It Is

How nice it is to lie in bed
on a summer night with the windows open
and listen to the thunder far away
and hear the thunder come closer
and see the lightning light up the sky
and then lie in bed in the dark
and listen to the rain.
