Yes the heat does make me lethargic

The last two days have been grossly humid, even at 9pm. Right now it is about 83 and sticky. I need another shower and I only took one about two hours ago! Granted, I am sure the deep south is much worse or to quote Eugene Morris Jerome in Biloxi Blues "Man it's hot. It's like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot. "
Anyway, things are sort of at a standstill in our house. We both have a lot of things to do in regards to house renovations and our jobs, but the husband and I have declared that we feel aimless. There is no real reason either, we just do. While we had a ton of fun with my cousin in town, financially it set us back a bit. Money is tight to begin with, now it is tighter. Maybe we got wiped out from having to be somewhere or doing something pretty much everyday she was here.
Due to aimlessness we also keep procrastinating with stuff, which is not smart considering things we are trying to do has some sort of urgency to them. I have been researching for my next novel, but for some reason I am feeling sort of stagnant with it and that really frustrates me. I have another idea I can work with, but I am not sure it is smart to start the outline of a third book when I am still working on the second and waiting for notes on the first. UGH!!!!!
I applied for a temp job recently. Yes, yes I did. The job is for four months and I figured that would be really great. Agencies are probably so slammed right now so I can only hope I get some sort of feedback.
My veggie garden is spitting out it's last few cucumbers and my basil is still growing like mad. The sunflowers were here for a brief time and it was most enjoyable to watch bumblebees behave like crack addicts as they circled round and round collecting pollen, their bodies covered in a pretty yellow dusting.
Friends of our have their baby shower at the end of the month and that should be a lot of fun. They are using surrogates from India and are having a total of three babies! No hand me down clothes in that family! HAHA
Anyway, I need to get back and motivate myself to work on my Angel of Death/Archangel story. Enjoy your evening and stay cool!

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.

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.

Reading and The Universe

The Universe has been generous and cruel to us here in our little home.

While the loss of our pup still hangs heavy, that is the cruel part, I am happy to report that we are doing better. Especially the little guy who was having the hardest time without his pet. The sobs that came from the depths of his young soul were heart wrenching, but to know he loved so hard and so well makes Isadora's existence even that more precious.

The Universe's generous part is I am thoroughly enjoying my Adult Writing Workshop through The Writer's Circle. I have learned so much in a short amount of time and I hate the idea that there are only a few more sessions. These writer's are my people and for that I am eternally grateful.

And are you ready for this? I got a part time job! Hooray! 

Normally I would be cynical waiting for all the bad stuff, but not today. There is no sense in waiting for bad things to happen because they do happen regardless, so enjoy what you have while you can and stop…
