how much is that doggie in the window?

one of my most favorite things to see when walking up my sidewalk after a long day at work is seeing a silhouette of Harlow’s head waiting for me at the door. as soon as she hears the car door shut she’s there, tail wagging like a propeller.

and as i get closer it wags faster-

and faster–

and i always thought it was endearing until i saw that she would sit at the door and do this:

  1. Jeff Who Lives at Home – i’ve always been a Jason Segel fan, and this quirky dark comedy is just another reason why.
  2. our shiny new compost pail – oh my gosh you guys, this pail is awesome.  we just throw our food scraps, egg shells, etc. in it, and drop it off at the compost dump near our house.  i was skeptical as to whether or not it would really be odorless, but YES. you would never know we have weeks of banana peels & avocado skins hanging out in our kitchen.
  3. my Lifefactory water bottle – this glass water bottle has kind of become my security blanket.  i bring it with me everywhere.  not only is glass the tastiest material drink out of, but the safest as well.  no need to worry about BPA, PVC, lead, etc.
  4. dots dots dots – you could polka dots on a potato sack and i’d gladly wear it.  throw a chambray shirt under this sweater and call it a day.
  5. Garance Dore print – J’adore Garance Doré.  And the opportunity to buy a print of her sketches? Magnifique!

probably.

maybe I have to read every night before I go to bed.  maybe it’s Anne I’m probably reading.

maybe I smooch my pooch smack dab on her furry lips.

maybe I wake Mike up when he falls asleep on the couch because I miss him when he’s not awake.

maybe I sobbed uncontrollably for the entirety of Les Miz due to the fact that I hadn’t taken my medication for a week and I was a little more emotional than usual.

maybe I prefer white bread over wheat, but eat wheat anyways.

maybe I know every “Friends” episode by heart.

in with the new

I’m not a big resolution girl.  The thought is too overwhelming for me, and I’d rather not set myself up for failure.  While I do have things I want to accomplish this year, I’d rather take it day by day.  Because the good Lord knows how much grace I need on a daily basis :)

I’ve decided to take a few days off and have a little staycation this week.  And I’m looking forward to starting off 2013 with a few, doable goals with my time off.

  1. get our bodies moving by taking Harlow on a loooong walk each morning along Lake Superior.
  2. have Michael come home to a whole, nutrient-rich, as much as possible organic meal each night (like this & this!)
  3. spend some quality time with my brand spanking new, perfect in every way, niece Hattie.
  4. shave my legs (sorry. but yes. this desperately needs to happen.)
  5. clean clean clean

I can’t tell you how excited I am to have some time to myself to really start of the year right.
