TGIF Thoughts


That photo is of Glacier National Park. Breathtaking isn't it? I have always wanted to go there, but for now, this photo will have to do. When I do get there, I have a feeling those mountains are going to look even more majestic. Amazing that the United States has such beautiful diversity in its land. This is also why I want to road trip one day. Our country has A LOT to see and what better way to do it then by traipsing across it in a vehicle? One day, one day...

Last night we had the pleasure of attending a friends wedding. They are already married but her hubby, who went to Fordham for his Masters in Theology, fell in love with the Catholic faith and intends to make it more user friendly, so they renewed vows in the Catholic Church. It was a lovely experience and a cocktail hour followed at the fabulous Park and Orchard. Their pierogi are hand down some of the best I have ever had.

I have the pleasure of meeting a friend for lunch today at a Diner. Comfort food at its finest right? At least I get to have say, chocolate chip pancakes, before I either get a shot or drugs for this wretched joint that is masquerading as my elbow. The evaluation is today and hopefully I will leave the office pain free. I feel like an arthritis patient today as the weather made my arm extremely stiff and sore. It sucks.

Then it is back to the grind with my story writing. There has been considerable progress made with "Retrospect". I now know how it will end and how I am getting to the end. Now to make it all coherent and exciting to the reader, that is the true difficult task. There is also a new short story in the works that will get submitted to another literary magazines contest. I would like to do Romance Writers of America's huge contest, but I will not be ready in time nor have the $100 entry fee. That is okay, there is next time and I will be ready for that one in particular then.

Cheers!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.
Here is a stunning Craftsman Renovated home for sale in Bellevue, WA via Hooked on Houses.
I don't knit gloves or mittens, but these Podster Gloves

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…
