Conversation with the husband this morning:
Me: Yikes, it's cold upstairs this morning.
Him: You should have seen this sky earlier -- it was a really pretty pink.
Me: That's because it's the dawn of a new day, my friend.

November 3, 2008
Besides falling way behind on posting in general, I'm also sorely lacking in nesting posts here. (I've also been sketchy on the "reading" part of my blog name, too, but that's another subject.)I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone by posting every day this week about some design element or decision in my house.
Fall finally (finally!) has arrived here, at least for today. It's breezy (but not a hot wind) and a little cloudy, and when the clouds cover up the sun, I could almost pretend it's November in some other state or county where the average daytime temperature in October was not 94 degrees. So what a perfect time to nest, or focus on it. Also, tomorrow's election has me so nervous and sketchy, I think I might need to go buy a pack of cigarettes or something. Depending on how it goes, I may just have to turn my home into My Own Private Canada -- another good excuse to focus on the interior.
For today, above is a shot of my entryway table, as stylized for Halloween. It was fun for the kids to look at, but not too childish, either.
Enjoy, and come back tomorrow for another nesting post -- since I can't post video of me chewing on my fingernails and flipping around the news channels for early results.
