As part of an ongoing attempt to wrangle my ever-growing task list, I have been searching for a simple way to earmark important tasks that may get buried in the Bullet Journal format. Then I remembered Book Darts, little pieces of paper-thin metal that slide onto the edge of a page.
Every morning, I slip a Book Dart next to each of the day’s three Most Important Tasks. Book Darts slide on easily and don’t budge, even on thin Tomoe River paper, until I slide them off again. Simple, reusable, and elegant.

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.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: pumpkin spice time!

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.
