January Rain Day

     Today started out foggy and wet with a morning which even included unusual January thunder and lightning, for nearly an hour. I happened to be on the 8th floor of a business with big windows and was treated to a wonderful view of the lightning show against the late morning, still darkened, sky. Lightning is fabulous, as long as you are safely inside. Being dry instead of rain-soaked is also a nice feature, and today that was a challenge! I couldn't help dreaming of some fun pink puddle duck boots and a cute pink paisley umbrella. The rain poured for hours and even blew sideways a bit. I managed to accomplish all my errands and attend all appointments for the day, and 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, and I will assemble a birthday table for her to come home to. I believe her favorite tiramisu and cannoli desserts will take the place of a cake this year.

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.
