bits and pieces.

First of all…this is my second blog post of today. What is going on?

I must really be on the ball.

Here’s a little glimpse into my day, a la Bleubird Vintage.

The day started off like this.

Which turned into this.

And eventually, this. (x2)

I may be the only person on the planet that really enjoys making the bed.  There’s nothing better than sliding into a nicely made bed after a long day.

Bigsby likes to make sure I made the bed well.  After all, it’s where he sleeps all afternoon.Tried a new technique for loose curls.  Worked well.

My office has been seriously neglected since the week of Dave’s birthday.  I had to tackle this room today, otherwise I would be incapable of working in it when it’s like this.

Ahhh…that’s better. (I also totally reorganized the books in our living room and in my office, and freed up a whole bunch of space.  It felt good.)

I also moved my vintage cameras and a few of my old clocks onto the wall shelf and made a little display.  I like.

And then I found this…erm…charming little flower pot…

…And turned it into this much less obnoxious flower pot.

Lunch was leftover pad thai.  Om nom nom.

Worked on music arrangements for my jazz set.  Thankfully, (as much as I love playing piano) I am not actually playing piano in the set.  Just focusing on voice.

Someone was not too pleased that I woke him up by playing (*erm…LOUD*) Duke Ellington.  Look at that face.
Worked on a sketch for a dress I’m making in a little bit.  I have decided against the yellow though (sad face) as I can’t seem to find a yellow fabric that I like. (It will be sea-foam green instead)

Thursday dinner at the parents.  They were taking care of some munchkins. (“Me want your watching mine run so, so fast!” Is the first thing she said to me. I love toddler grammar.)

“…By the liiiight…of the silvery iPad….”

And lastly…finished the evening with some fresh nail polish…

And a cup ‘o chamomile. 

Goodnight, everyone. :)


Apr 21 2010


The weather: rain.  My mood: insatiable.
Is that possible for a mood to be unsatisfiable?  You know those days when you just can’t decide on anything?  The kind of day that feels like you’ve got things to do, but you feel like you have nothing to do?  I have a long list of things that need doing.  A lot of them necessary.  Not a lot of them with deadlines.  But I sure would love it if they got done sooner.  I keep skipping from one thing to the next, without really completing the job.  I planned on freezing a bunch of meals this afternoon.  So I roasted a chicken with the intent of cutting it up and making some different sauces to mix it with.  I got as far as roasting, and now it’s just sitting in the fridge.  Waiting.  A scratchy old record of Beethoven is playing right now, and it seems to match my mood.  I decided to wash the floor mat in the bathroom.  I really wanted to wash the whole bathroom, but the mat is as far as I got.  I hung up hooks in my closet so that I can hang scarves.  I was going to organize the whole closet…  I washed the floor in the kitchen.  Then I made myself a cup of tea, and here I am.   The tea is not as good as I expected.  It’s some organic rooibos from the grocery store.  It’s a replacement tea until we get out to Vancouver and buy some rooibos from the T Shop on Broadway.  I had plans to pressure wash the outside of the house, but the rain kept me from it.  It seems as if nothing I do today is exciting enough to capture my attention.  Insatiable.  Even this blog is not satisfying me.  I’m going to go take a bath.  Dave should be home soon.
