clean and shop

Ladybug and I are about to embark on a serious, serious journey. Our very lives are at risk, so please, if you have chance, think good thoughts for us today.

What’s so big? Cleaning the laundry room. No seriously. The laundry room is a dank closet of a room, with a partial concrete floor (the rest is dirt). It is currently filled with a disgusting mess of old moldy blankets and clothes heaped in one corner and a surely dangerous heap of old laundry containers in another pile. Much of this is from the former neighbors who were perhaps some of the messiest, most inconsiderate people I have ever met. We plan on undertaking the task with pitchforks, shovels and heavy boots. If I had a hazmat suit I’d wear it. I am terrified of spiders.

I have this sweater. It looks better in real life than in that picture. Alas it seems somewhat delicate. Which is too bad because I want to wear every single day until spring comes back. LOOK! It looks like fall and like me and like joy!

Pretty Cabbage girl posted these prints a couple days ago. I am mesmerized by the one from Ashland (where I was born!). Along with these I have recently become obsessed with photography. It is also that time of year when I start thinking of presents (I actually started shopping yesterday, or before if you count fabric and plans for stuff I am making people). I strive to want nothing. It’s long long long long road however, before I achieve that level of Buddhist minimalism and thus I still make wish lists every year. I am focusing on the Etsy this year, since I am also a maker of handmade things, I would like to encourage every one to support such artists. And as ever, with the holidays on us, I’d much rather have you buy some something I made to give to some else, than buy something for me. (When I say that I can never tell if I come off as an insane Capitalist or if the intended spirit of sharing and passing things on really comes through). However, I have begun to fill my Etsy favorites list with photography, if nothing else you should go look, just so you can see the pretty pretty pretty pictures.

Need more coffee. Ad protective, durable clothes. Here we go to work.

One thought on “clean and shop

  1. Well, I was going to call you, but I don’t want to interrupt that level of fun. đŸ˜‰

    I’ll still probably try before I decide to take my nap, though.
