Photo Diary: Miscellanea
Thursday, November 29, 2012
This week has certainly felt a bit miscellaneous. Maybe I am just feeling miscellaneous and a little all over the place; I guess you could say it's been "one of those weeks" kinda-sorta. The come-down week from Thanksgiving and the calm before the storm of which the countdown to the holidays really begins; speaking of which I need to get a move on making my advent calendar. It's also fairly slow in my etsy shop right before the holidays and I go from quiet and organized work pattern to falling asleep in a pile of threads and waking to nightmares that I put the hearts in the wrong locations on my map pillows. Thankfully I am lucky enough to have some lovely fellow bloggers that will be making guest appearances here to help out with a blog post or two. Stay tuned.
Last night I made a really yummy dinner that I was going to photograph and post: roasted chicken with butternut squash. You can see my inspiration here. There is no photo because a bit after I stuck it in the oven I heard an explosion; opened my oven to find my glass cookware had shattered into a million little pieces. I think I do indeed need that le creuest for christmas. Today I downloaded super mario brothers 3 on the Wii for M+L. Oh why, oh why do I do these things? There is that little voice in my head that says "don't do it" but do I listen? Nope. So my attempt at "buying time" with screen time so I could get some work done cost me a couple hours and many, many mario lives. But it's just like riding a bicycle, I remembered every brick block that harbored a mushroom and extra coins. And that sore thumb is back just like it was 1988 all over again. They cried the entire time because I wasn't doing it right and when I finally turned the game off they then cried at me saying "I want poop. Get me poop." I was just about on the brink of giving them some but didn't want to end the evening hanging out in the E.R. when they inevitably got some in their eye or something (JK I really would never give my kids poop. Though I did do some mumbling under my breath). On the positive I found a new item to add to my wish list - those boots. I have spent many a'moments this week thinking of outfits I could wear with them and imaging myself wearing them in situations I am never actually in, like having a witty conversation with an artist at a gallery opening or running to catch a taxi to get to my meeting with a magazine editor. Lastly, the hollywood theater sign is from my boy Fisher when he went to see a resurrected 1980's film in which I have had the pleasure of viewing the trailer of several time since his outing; he particularly loves the last bit. It does look pretty radical, you can see it here too.
