I tried to ignore the charm of that Orla Kiely mug, but as you can see, I failed. I dropped by Target for one method soy candle and a box of Kleenex, and caved to a cheery, manipulative end cap display of dishes.
I am definitely not on Spring Break. I'm starting my next Curator article today which would be two weeks before my deadline. This is a first and a habit I intend to keep. I'm also back to my most bookwormish ways, perusing:
-the genius of Biblical charity & gleaning laws (thus planning a trip to the Goodwill store near our house),
-poetry by Billy Collins, then Philip Levine (library finds),
-much-needed advice on homemaking from author Cheryl Mendelson (another library find),
-and tips on how to write and edit courtesy of Strunk & White and Maira Kalman (a re-read).
Oh, and I'm purchasing a 12 session self-paced copy editing course from mediabistro.com. I guess I'm "going back to school."
I am so inspired that I'm somewhat overstimulated, filling my journal with all kinds of quotes, thoughts, and writings. But this is my life and I love it.
