Managed to do something for myself yesterday! 😮
I've always wanted to make my own Christmas wreath from scratch (including the willow base ring!), and yesterday I managed it! 🎄
It was soooooooo therapeutic and I love the end product. Crafting is good for my soul 🧖🙌🏼
Honestly I like Monday’s a lot because it’s a fresh start to the week (and usually my favorite tv shows come on that night)! .. But if you live anywhere in North Carolina, you know that this particular Monday has been nothing but cold and rainy (or snowy). It’s definitely a bit harder to stay motivated on days like today. All I’ve wanted to do today was cuddle up with my cats & nap.
But instead.. I finished a logo, designed a Christmas card, and illustrated a sticker for the cafe I work at (in addition to working a morning shift). On busy days, I try to remind myself to be thankful for an abundance of work.. even when I’m sleepy! 😴 #grateful
Waking Up to Rain Is Better Than any Alarm (or a crying 8 month old baby)
As much as I love snow, I'd rather have rain. The moment we get a single announcement of a winter storm, people get into accidents or we deal with icy roads 😓
I'm the meantime, baby M and I will do some cuddling and continue practicing his first word "Dada" 😍 *queue happy tears*.
Btw, any suggestions on binge worthy series?
This is Rosie. She is posing in the chair she destroyed a month after we bought it and next to the rug she destroyed 24 hours after purchase. We are in the many thousands of dollars of damage category at this point. #asshole#rainydaysandmondays#muttsofinstagram
🎄 25 Days of Vinyl: Day 8🎄
Call me square, but I love The Carpenters. Karen Carpenter’s voice was perfection. Plus, that’s a pretty cool sleeve (though mine has clearly seen better days 😬). It bums me out that Richard Carpenter doesn’t like Sonic Youth’s cover of “Superstar” ‘cause I think it’s pretty dope.
P. S. Now you can’t call me square, ‘cause obviously a square person wouldn’t use cool terms like “bums me out” and “dope”. And nothing says cool like a Saturday night at home with your Carpenters records! 🥺😂
Artist: The Carpenters
Favorite Track: Superstar
“At their most inspired, Carpenters seem a world unto themselves, immune to the hip upheavals around them, pursuing a sound of poignant sweetness, tinged with yearning. It’s a kind of music that’s never been duplicated and remains a pleasure to hear.” - All Music Guide
We just had the incredible honor of hanging with @paulielama2 at @joespub !!! Celebrating 25 years of @joemcginty7 & The Loser’s Lounge, by paying tribute to the incredible, beautiful, heart wrenching and uplifting songs of Paul Williams! What a night!!! What a songwriter, and what a truly lovely human being. Feeling very thankful, very blessed.
