Rambles ahead ....
This is the unfortunate reality of my life today. Laundry is an inescapable fact of life -- I ignored it over the weekend, and am doing penance today. Thankfully it's a beautiful day to be outside, and the clothes are drying quickly. Still, it's definitely not my favourite job, so I'm totally pretending it's not there and posting a whole bunch of random snapshots from the day instead.
I was devastated when my favourite magazine, Notebook: was discontinued late last year. Devastated! It was so fantastic. I loved that it had a bit of everything -- food, clothes, interiors, interesting reads etc. I'm trying out a few new ones (two were given to me by a lovely friend), but nothing else is coming close. Most magazines are too niche. Don't they understand that we are fabulous women with many and varied interests? *sigh* I'm trying out some new recipes from "delicious" though.
My husband bought me these pretty field carnations last week. My favourite type of bouquet is something garden or market fresh -- no fussy, mixed bouquets with lilies and gerberas for me thanks. Loving these.
We are FINALLY moving into our new home on Friday, and the first job on the agenda is some serious paint. Serious. Wait until you see the pictures! While I love neutrals and whites, I'm considering whether to break out of the box and try some colour this time around. It sure can't get any worse.
Have been coveting my mother's furniture the entire time I'm here. I especially love this old cabinet that she did up herself. It now houses her china and doilies. Gorgeous.
Am also coveting her gardening skills and motivation to make the yard beautiful. The iceberg standard roses out the front are my favourite.
Finally: my little girl is oh-so-precious. I look at her every day and think how blessed I am to have her. Her dad is pretty great too.
