I go back to work tomorrow and I'm kind of looking forward to it. I tend to do better with some structure, and with so much change happening now, I think it'll be a good thing. That being said, I'll miss my beach days. We had some beautiful days this last week, with lower humidity and temperatures in the eighties. These were taken Monday through Thursday and I can't even tell the difference between the days, they were so uniformly gorgeous.
I have the living room sorted out, thanks to a quick trip out of town. I emptied the china cabinet out on Sunday, but didn't finish culling and replacing everything that was left until Friday morning, right before leaving town for the weekend. I knew I didn't want to walk back into the house tonight to find a mess on the floor. I need to rehang the curtains and maybe add a small rug but I can live with it as-is for a bit.
My friend, Lori, and I drove out to Lynchburg to visit her daughter this weekend, and we visited this adorable yarn shop; it's a converted house and I love the kitchen, with its built-in shelf and Formica from the fifties! The entire place was darling.
Lori's daughter has a French bulldog named Piper, who has the sweetest disposition. We tired her out playing fetch with her. These are my notes from the shawl I'm still working on.
My sweet Gracie.
