Welcome to Friday

Body Pump. 8 o'clock this morning. We did some serious shoulder work. Because of this I can barely lift my arms over my head due to the fatigue my deltoids, triceps, biceps and pectorals feel. Aces. That aside, I do love the class and wished it was offered more often.

I went and got a haircut and tomorrow I get the eyebrows waxed.  Whoo hoo!

I started to watch the British sci-fi/demented series Black Mirror. "The National Anthem" is episode one and after I watched it I wanted to vomit and shower. This series is not for the fainthearted nor is it for someone who dislikes science fiction and may fear technology. This series is everything dark and horrible you like to imagine about technology brought to life.

My book is nearly finished. Yes, hell has frozen. Well, it is about 6 chapters away and we all know that could take another 6 months or even a year considering how limited my writing time can be. No matter. I have decided that advice from a friend seems a sound way to go. Send out queries and give it 120 days. If I hear nothing, self publish. Hire an editor, a proofreader and probably someone to design the cover. This probably means I need to rejoin social media sites as I will need to promote the book. I am not thrilled about that aspect because of trolls and whatnot, but the desire to get the book into many hands will have to override that bull.

Been keeping a list of what is to get planted where outside and am excited to get a move on.

In case you don't have kids, three is an amazing and very strenuous age. Our son has a lot of autonomy, but man, there are times you would think he never was given freedom. Other times he wants to be attached to my hip or his daddy's. God Bless. I appreciate him enjoying our company and I also appreciate that he goes to preschool two days a week.

Have a fabulous weekend!

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


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…
