I have been knee deep in boys for the last few days - normally something I would enjoy, but one boy being my brother and the others being not-Timmy, not so much - I am feeling a bit funky to put it nicely.
I am really really ready to be in my own home and in my own bed. The weatherhead is fixed but the electricity is not hooked back up. I am also just sick and tired of talking about the ICE ATTACK!!!! Ugh.
So, abruptly changing the subject. Today is Blog for Choice Day. I am sure I am not the only one out there who is feeling a wee bit more comfortable about their reproductive rights after November's election. I am so glad to have the choice to control my own body and any wee blob of cells floating about in it. I recently made some changes to my method of birth control (Yay for new hormones after a decade of the old ones!) and I am thrilled that I can make that choice, I can make informed, reasoned decisions about my body without government over site. I am pro-choice because I am surrounded by intelligent, caring women who I trust. I am pro-choice because I trust myself.
It will probably be that way again for a bit because my neighborhood looks like this:
I am posting from work where they have power (and internet!!!), but we are back home soon to tend the wood stove, cook three pounds of quickly defrosting ravioli, and listen to trees cracking all around us. Yay!
Or at least my sister has because she has been bitching at me to post. Are you happy now, Courtney?! ARE YOU!!!!????
I am sticking to my story that the crazy holidays didn't allow me to post. Yeah. The holidays. Not laziness, the holidays.
My motivation to post today in particular is the acquisition of a new couch (and chair)! Brace yourself for a poorly lit, late night, bad angled picture of said couch (and chair):
Okay, it looks pretty underwhelming in the photo, but please take my word for it that is spectacular. Probably not the upholstery I would have chosen, but spectacular. (and I really need to clean my wall. Gross.)
I also ask you to please imagine the also-spectacular pillows I have in wait up stairs in the craft room. Hopefully you won't have to imagine by next week.
Also imagine a great piece of art for above the couch. And then buy it for me. Because I have no idea what to put there.
I take that back, I have lots of ideas, but the majority are impossible or improbable. I will probably take a hack at making something myself and then end up being embarrassed at the results.
So, lots of stuff has happened since I last post. But unfortunately you will have to leave it all to the imagination. Or you could check out my flickr. Which in has been my lunch as of late because I am trying to get back on the lunch eating wagon (that is my new lunch box on the chair). But somewhere, past all those lunches, are some photos of stuff. Good stuff I am sure you will enjoy. Good stuff.
