January Rain Day

     Today started out foggy and wet. For nearly an hour there was unusual January thunder and lightning. I happened to be inside a tall building with big windows during that time and was treated to a wonderful view of the lightning show against the late morning storm-darkened sky. A lightning show is fabulous to watch as long as you are safely inside. Being dry instead of rain-soaked is also a nice feature, and today that was a challenge! The rain poured for hours and even blew sideways a bit. I couldn't help dreaming of some fun pink puddle duck boots and a cute pink paisley umbrella.  I managed to accomplish all my errands and attend all appointments for the day, then the rain stopped after I was done.

     Tomorrow A. has her 21st birthday. She has no classes but is on the schedule at work. I will assemble a decorated birthday table for her to come home to. Instead of a cake, this year the sweet treat will include her favorite tiramisu and cannoli desserts.

What have I done?
  • The 2 Etsy shops are filling back up with curiosities, and lots more on stand-by to be listed soon. Stop in and peek around a bit. You can find the links in the right margin.
  • Managed to shred lots of computer desk/file cabinet paperwork for January clean-out. Feels freeing!
  • My fingers and toes are nicely polished red. Would be nice to have a sports car that same shade of red!

What do I need to do?
  • Do some last minute birthday prep and wrapping.
  • Continue purging unnecessary paperwork.
  • Tackle my closet and organize it the way I have it in my mind.

What do I want to do?

  • Have my camera in my hand more frequently so I can capture more every day magic.
  • Play among the fabric in my sewing room.
  • Frame some favorite family snapshots.
