Day 266 of Project 365: Guest room.


Tomorrow a dear friend arrives for a weekend visit and I am so excited! My study is also the guest-room, so the daybed also serves as the auxiliary clothing surface where I toss outfits that don’t pass bleary-eyed muster each workday morning. Now the daybed is cleared off, freshly laundered, and (since Zen doesn’t jump up there anymore) fur-free.

Day 264 of Project 365: Pithy title.


Nope, not even that.

FunkyPlaid and I finished watching the first season of “Stranger Things” tonight. My feelings are mixed: I reveled in the abject ’80s nostalgia that is the series’ trademark, but not even the most adorable kids ever could make up for the inconsistent writing.

But let’s get back to those ridiculously cute kids.

Day 263 of Project 365: Stormy grey.


I’m embracing the season-appropriate inks today. J. Herbin’s Stormy Grey — their 1670 Anniversary Ink from 2014 — is a lovely deep grey with gold flecks.
