Miscellanea, Personal

Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

BackpackTo be honest, I always thought this would be me. Maybe there’s still time….

10. I am a bit of a home design junkie. I love it, though I don’t do much of it anymore. Anyway, I look forward to the color of the year announcements every year. This year, the color of the year is…white. Specifically, Benjamin Moore’s is super white and Sherwin Williams’ is Alabaster. So. Much. Color. Waiting on you, Pantone.

09. I recently finished clearing out my closet. I am strangely proud of this. I only kept this things I wear regularly or fit with my wardrobe, with a few special occasion items (like I kept my suit jacket, but rarely wear it). Also, I still have my prom dress. What I’m going to do with that, I have no idea…

08. I still feel like a bad blogger, not because anyone expects anything for me, but solely for the expectations I have of myself. However I can assuredly say I don’t disappoint anyone as often as I disappoint myself. So, I’m doing good?

07. I recently decided I had to read the book The Lesser Blessed. Patience is not always my strong suit, so sooner rather than later would’ve been fantastic. However none of my local libraries had it. I requested a copy through inter library loan, but it made me realize how much I take my access to whatever I want to read for granted.

06. I want a sewing machine. And the patience to use it. That is all.

05. It snowed last week. It snowed this week. It’ll snow next week. Hello winter, I did not miss you.

04. I recently, finally, listed a lot of unused furniture and such on Craigslist. If anything sells, I will consider it a win.

03. I hate Thanksgiving for the over commercialization and greed that has taken over the holiday. Furthermore, almost my entire family lives back in northern New England, so there is never a big gathering to attend. This year, we’re having two people over and making spaghetti. It’s been a hard year for my family and none of us really feel like celebrating.

02. But Thanksgiving means I can put up my Christmas tree!!! I love decorating for Christmas, at the appropriate time of the year.

01. Predictions on how many broken ornaments and branches I’ll have? I have two cats, two kittens, and two kids. It won’t be pretty.

Say hi to Christine. And participate!

    9 – This is definitely something to be proud over. I’m constantly thinking that I should do mine, but I never make it through the entire thing, so I constantly have to start over.

    8 – You’re not a bad blogger. You’re my favourite – no matter if it is a post a day, a week or a month.

    7 – I get extremely annoyed when there’s a long waiting list for a book I want from the library. It’s even worse when the library doesn’t even have the book I want.

    6 – My friend got a sewing machine last year. Beware, it was like opening the flood gates. She’s now completely obsessed with making everything from curtains and clothes to bags and purses.

    5 – So. Jealous.

    3 – I’m not a big Thanksgiving fan either, mostly because it is not a holiday I celebrated growing up. But I do like that Thanksgiving means that it is almost time to start decorating for Christmas (although you have to wait until December 1, but then I go all out!)

    I bought a sewing machine a few years ago and used it on some projects here and there. I haven’t done much with it in the last two years, but I’m still glad I have it. Just in case, I guess!

    Yes, there’s still time. I’ve already decided that when Sawyer is a bit older I’m taking a big trip every other year.

    We are adamantly decorate-after-Thanksgiving people. I spread my holiday shopping out over months and months ahead of all the crowds and crap, so there will be no Black Fridaying (except a couple of online items) for me.

    In no particular order: your pride in clearing out your closet doesn’t need to be strange–that is quite the feet; spaghetti for Thanksgiving sounds strangely appealing to me; good luck selling on Craigslist; bring on the Christmas decorations!

    Re: the photo — There’s always time 🙂 (Hehe, that’s my dream too)

    Aww re: #8, you’re not a bad blogger, you’re an awesome one! 😀

    I just put the Christmas tree up today and my cat is already trying to tear it down. I get the feeling he doesn’t much care for the holiday…
