What a productive weekend!
I finally got some photos up on the walls and rearranged a bit. It took me a good year and a half to attempt to decorate our last place, so this is progress. The house is definitely starting to feel like home. Photographic proof: My office, the kitchen, and the living room, complete with notes.
I also worked on a doodle that has been floating around in my head for a couple days. At first I was concerned that it was too creepy to be cute, but now I think it’s almost too cute to be creepy.
See, I have this problem. I’m really two people. Dark Caroline, who dreams up photos like this, and Pink Caroline, who was single-handedly responsible for keeping the Lisa Frank company in business when she was twelve (Rainbows! Unicorns! Hearts! Flowers! Kittens!)
Sometimes Dark and Pink get into arguments (“That’s disgusting.” “It’s cute!” “Fine, it’s disgustingly cute.”) and then it’s damn near impossible to shut them up, but most of the time they get along. Begrudgingly.
I also did some shopping at the local farmer’s market – bought fresh apples, pumpkins, squash, and cookies. Yes, sometimes I go to the farmer’s market to buy cookies. I’m, uh, doing my part to buy organic.
Speaking of junk food, the hubby took it upon himself to make a delicious double chocolate devil’s food cake this weekend. He says he “just felt like it”, but I think he knows that PMS week is fast approaching and he wanted to head it off at the pass. Smart man. This is why I married him – brains and cake!
And there were so many other little things… I started reading a new book (Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult), put out the Halloween decorations, watched Memoirs of a Geisha, took a few photos, and did a little cleaning.
And now I am tired and wishing the weekend had just one more day.
