As the holidays approach, I like to get busier and busier. I'm working on my first quilt, making construction paper turkeys and christmas trees with Hayden, making healthy chili, adding vintage trims and buttons to some of my worn-out clothes to make them new again, and filling out antique christmas cards. But throughout all this, I'll have to remember to pace myself a bit. I also have a lot of doctor's appointments and medical tests this coming week, which usually means one thing: burn-out. And I don't want to be burned-out for Thanksgiving. There is pie to be eaten.

But today--glorious Sunday--shall be a wonderful day, if I have anything to do with it. I will wear my green dress and plum cardigan and tall boots, and I will drink too much cinnamon coffee, and I will take my husband and son to a Peter Pan show later. We will watch people "fly" and maybe have some gooey grilled cheeses afterwards. At least, I hope this is an approximation of how the day will go. I could really use a good day.

Or maybe I'll just go back to bed.


  1. wearing a green dress and a plum cardigan sounds fabulous ~ as do all of these potential sunday plans! those pretty yellow dishes remind me so much of the one's my grandmother used to serve her homemade rhubarb pie. a very sweet memory, thank you for inciting it. :)

  2. Haha, I didn't read this post until this morning! Which is awesome, because in retrospect I know the Peter Pan show is legendary. It will live on in Haydie's memory in some capacity for the rest of his LIFE! :)

  3. you're so welcome jennifer h. :) actually i found those dishes out for trash, in an alley. can you believe it?


Please leave some love--remember to be kind!
