friday-i'm-in-love (with-the-everyday-stuff)

i originally took this photo as an idea for the
celebration theme
for SPC
but then, didn't use it...


i love the SUPER FURNACE...it was brought
into the office to keep me from (quitting) freezing
and it throws off an immense amount of heat
plus
i love the retro graphic SUPER FURNACE
and saying SUPER FURNACE just like that...
(yes...it is in this post that i admit how strange i really am)

my book...
my go-everywhere-list-everything-hold-everything-
in-with-2-rubber-bands book...
initially...i wasn't sure...
it wasn't my color...
and i had never used spiral bound before

but the pages make an endearing crinkly sound
when i turn them
and i have stuffed it with bookmarks and
printed off recipes
and song lyrics
and lists of lists with more lists listing lists.

and on the back, i have rubber-banded
my favorite-ist blank paper pad
sent to me by the cutest l'il blogger
so that i have no excuse not to doodle
(please excuse the dark pictures)

my constant companion,
my connection..
my plug-in
refuge
find-out-what's-going-on-in-the-world
or
hide-from-the-world
daydream
addiction...
that provides
my connection
to all of you...

I do love a good space heater. My cat curls up in front of ours even when it's not plugged in - I guess it even looks warm.

I have to admit I love, love notebooks, and they don't even have to be pretty. That crinkly sound is music.

I'm lusting for a laptop right now. Oh the things I could do if only (sigh) I had a laptop...

For some reason it makes you that much more incredibly endearing to me that you carry around a notebook full of song lyrics and little bits of info.

I did that for so many years and I almost miss it now.

Gorgeous list! I especially love that book. It's beautifully decorated and I too, love those kinds of collections of oneself - random, tiny pieces that spark our interest, that somehow define us, that we treasure as everything. I just love it! xoxo
