It is getting to be that time of year. It is colder and darker and the holidays are right around the corner. I have gotten my organizational butt in gear to get the house ready. Poor, CDR. He’s had to deal with me in my new role as Tasmanian Devil Molly Maid cleaning psycho. But I’m sure he’ll thank me later…he will. 🙂
And thanks to Trader Joe’s and their cinnamon brooms, our house smells delicious 100% of the time. Just took a few strategically placed rustic-looking brooms soaked in cinnamon oil–and it totally counts as Halloween decorations, right?
A mini-broom in the bathroom:
A mini-broom on CDR’s side of the bed:
And a regular-sized broom in the kitchen/dining room:
And thanks to my new favorite
blog obsession Young House Love, I am finally inspired to do something about these big windows that need curtains (that aren’t shower curtains).
And curtains to our bedroom windows (see how they’re lopsided?! Currently trying to problem solve):
But anyhoozle, you’re here for the food aren’t you?
I’ve decided that I need to find a way to sneak more veggies into my diet. We eat healthy, but I think we could stand to add more greens, so to get into the habit I have decided that I will have at least one salad a day for the next week. This started at Panera two days ago, and I’ve continued it through today.
For dinner I had a simple salad of spinach, arugula, sunflower kernels, cranberries, tomatoes, and a little parmesan tossed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Fresh, healthy, and tasty.
I also had some of that Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup from Trader Joe’s. Can’t go wrong there.
Oh wait…I’m still hungry. Maybe something I ate last week at Ms. Archer’s will inspire me…
Mmm, the smell of cinnamon and bacon swirling around my house and the desire to craft my shit up has me thinking of that thing that’s right around the corner? What’s it called, again? It’s my favoritest thing ever?
Oh yeah. Christmas.
Sigh. Can’t I just be a crafty foodie for a living? People make livings from their blogs, right? I can has do it too?
Bye for now.
