Outside my window… the sun is shining! This is unbelievable after what feels like an endless parade of dreariness. I had begun to think that some kind of ill-advised exchange had been made between the South and the Pacific Northwest. This afternoon suggests that might not be true after all. Whew….
I am thinking… about dinnerware and something colorful to go over the mantelpiece and the weekend.
I am thankful for… writers who are overzealous in their love of language. I listened to Pat Conroy’s My Reading Life (read by the author) this week and am reminded of everything I love about writing, words and being from the South.
I am wearing… a blue tank top and grey pajama pants.
I am reading… Mrs. Dalloway. It has been much too long.
I am hoping… that Bean takes good naps tomorrow. So much I need to do around the house.
Around the house… everyone is working for the weekend. Bean and I can’t WAIT until we can have Toad all to ourselves!
One of my favorite things…
A “picture thought I’m sharing… Jane Mount is my new favorite person. She paints bookshelves as a kind of portraiture. I LOVE that idea and am eager to get her book when it comes out.
