Ah, Monday...
It's gray, cold and our washing machine is kaput.
Then there's Jesse who reminds me to laugh it off and find a warm, cozy spot for a nap. 
Nothing like cat wisdom.

All above me, peaceful. All below me, peaceful. 
All before me, peaceful. All behind me, peaceful.
All around me, peaceful. 
Happy snow day.

Big City

We are home from our Atlanta adventure, with our heads full of ideas and inspiration. Some of the new things we ordered for MM are already on the truck and expected later this week! 

Neither of us had ever been to Atlanta before. We loved its Southern charm but hated the big city traffic. Loved the 50 degree winter days and the bright sunny skies, and even pondered briefly what it would be like to like in a place without much winter. It's 14 degrees here today, with a bone chilling 20 mph wind. There is no place I'd rather be than right here.

We're about to embark on a big adventure and there are so many dreams and ideas flowing right now I can hardly sleep. Then I realized, that's because they're not just dreams and just ideas, they're PLANS and ACTIONS and EVENTS and they're taking place right here, right now. 

Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. 
Thank you, Gloria Steinem.

For once in my life I am not starting a diet on January 1st.
