I am in love with the commonplace. I love to make it shine--by holding it in the right light. ~ Jim Wayne Miller
'Making up my oatmeal "packet" for work when I noticed how pretty my gathered supplies were. The rest of the apartment still feels chaotic and in need of a good sort after last weekend's trip, but this tiny corner, at least, looks sweet. Temperatures in the high eighties and low nineties this week, and a big BLECCCCHHHH may I say to that! But! I try not to complain, so. . . ! I've lost ten pounds since deciding once again to get back on-track this summer, so there is that, and there is Mike's thirty-ninth birthday tomorrow, and my days off tomorrow and Wednesday, and a healthy cat currently curled up beside the patchwork cupboards, and both a family reunion and a visit with Aunt Laurie in the weeks ahead (assuming I get the days off, but I'm hopeful), and now, brown sugar-cinnamon oatmeal and almonds packed into my work bag.
