the other side

On my mind
1.  workshop planning
2.  need more pie
3.  searching for a new place to store my sweaters.  suggestions?
4.  book deadlines
5.  tres chicas (just unearthed the cd under a pile)
6.  yellow sand
7. harvesting our sunflower seeds (must I wait until the backs turn yellow?)
8. a vintage typewriter found in my grandparents' basement
9. tag sale on saturday.  kind of strange that I am feeling excited to spend an afternoon this week in the barn tagging things.

The past few weeks and the next month will be filled with lots of book deadlines, which means I won't be able post here as regularly as I'd like to. Just yesterday, I found out that my friend Emily has a lovely blog where she likes to write lists of things.  It reminded me how much I love to write in list form, and I suddenly decided that I want to write lots of little lists in the coming days.  It will be a nice way to create in this space in the midst of all of my book writing and crafting.  I'll post some photos and write some lists and maybe you'll write some lists too?  I'd love that.  The Wednesday Treasured feature will probably be on hold until the end of the month.

Okay, good.  I feel better now.

  1. Things I'm thinking about:
    1. discipline surrounding time on the internet
    2. patches of sun coming in through the windows (the dog and I are sunning in them)
    3. Chipmunks
    4. Writing
    5. Chocolate covered almonds
    6. Swimming and bobbing in ocean waves
    7. The many benefits of list making

  2. I don't know if this will help you so many days later, but my sunflower-obsessed neighbor gave me detailed harvesting instructions that include the backs turning yellow :)

  3. thanks, e. while we wait for the backs to turn, we put paper bags over them to protect them from the birds. kind of a pathetic looking situation. have you harvested yours yet?
