Come on Spring!

I think I've slept all weekend (hence no posts, no new cards up on Etsy, no pasta made, etc.). I'm ready for more sunshine for more hours in the day so my Circadian rhythm and body in general don't put me to sleep every afternoon of the weekend. Bread is in the oven so at least we can have sandwiches for lunch this week! And the Stewarts (my wonderful chem professor and his wife) just bought some of my most favorite cards. :) 

I'm starting to really embrace my full weekends of NOT working on Saturdays and I must say it's pretty awesome. Only very small moments of panic remain. :) 

Well, I've read two books in about 2 1/2 weeks (which is amazing and wonderful and definitely partly due to having a Saturday/weekend again) and I've just started Water for Elephants, which I've heard is amazing. And so far it is--beautifully written, funny, interesting. So it's off to read in bed for a bit. 

Here's a funny picture I don't think I've shared from around Christmas time. I was walking from the kitchen to the office and I look over into the living room and see this: 

That used to be on the tree.
Vivienne, just chilling with the garland all around her. No biggie. At least that's what her entire attitude says--that and, "I do what I want!" The vet says Tortishells are "independent," but Brian uses other words. They're certainly into everything like toddlers! Hope you all have had relaxing weekends and I'm going to try and be more of an online presence this week!


  1. Yay, you're officially done at cheesecake?! Is your life so much more relaxing?

  2. Ummmm in many ways yes, more relaxing. And all our bills have been paid (duh.) but it's been 8 years!! It's hard to really feel like I'm done. BUT. Planning anything I want for any day in the future is pretty awesome. :)

  3. Somehow I missed the mention of Water for Elephants the first time I read this post. It's been a couple years, but I could not put that book down. What did you think??

  4. Katie--AMAZING. Blog post on it shortly. :)
