Well, it is Friday again. Of course, last week I was in St. Louis hanging with my mom and now I’m not. I am keeping busy though with an unusual amount of plans on my calendar. I hope to get some gym time in this weekend. And some stitching. And of course, tidying. Because, you know, old lady.
I’ve mentioned before that I love to screen capture instagrams that amuse me and then go back and look through them days later to find one to post on this ol’ blog. Well, I was originally going with something from this account–but then I saw the below and I laughed out loud. It was really a light guffaw.
These are my basic requirements for clothing, you know?
Anyway, I’m back in New York and still getting adjusted. I’ve got plans every night for like four days (which is WAY too many) and I went to the personal trainer at 6a yesterday and can’t move today, so it’s a slow process. But, my trip home was lovely and Susie said yes to the dress and the Mississippi River is awesome and my mother is the best.
I’m heading home to St. Louis this afternoon–and please let’s just all prayer hands emoji that there isn’t a rainstorm somewhere in the continental United States to deter my travel. I’ll be off the grid–but check me out on instagram (my stories will be very entertaining). Major props to Bobby D on the Nobel Prize in Literature. And this cartoon sums up my life quite nicely these days. xo.
I gotta tell you–I’m very excited that it is Friday. It has been a relatively busy week. I’m starting a new workout regime because 2017 is full of wonderful things that require photographs that will be around forever. I am, needless to say, moving like an old lady, today. But, it really just adds to my persona.
And some internet faves from this week:
—I’ll take it!
–An interesting list.
–An oldie, but a goodie.
–I’ll take one of each, please.
In my continued quest to make use of my normal human schedule, last night I went to the In the Company of Women book release event. I’ve read Design Sponge for years and I’m always happy to see a panel of women talking about how to be successful. Plus, I got a tote bag. Anyway, what struck me most is the notion of “just doing it”–if you want something, you have to go get it. Obviously, we know this, but it is helpful to be reminded. I was also intrigued by the notion of surrounding oneself with positive people who support you. Now, the idea of positivity is a bit of a sore spot for me because people LOVE to tell me that I’m negative. I’m not a negative person. I’m a realistic person. And there is a difference. But my interpretation of this context is the idea of surrounding yourself with friends and co-workers who are positive about you–they recognize your worth and support you. Maybe someday, I’ll find a place like this–or create one. But for now, goals.
