Rainy day

Good morning!  I have a few minutes before I make my coffee and must dash out the door in Hunter wellies to a tag sale by an interior designer friend of mine.  Rain isn’t going to keep me away from amazing interior decor deals, I seem to really enjoy being outside in the rain – crazy?

Super Bowl is this weekend in Glendale (a city next to Phoenix), which means nothing to me since my team isn’t playing (but one of my least favorites are, you know team rivalry) but it has incredibly affected life in Phoenix/Scottsdale these past two weeks, this week especially.  We had the Pro Bowl last week and now the Waste Management Open (golf) is going on as well.  This is all fantastic for the state but goodness is traffic horrific lately, I was ten minutes late to my hair appointment.

A few things I learned this week:

  • To never assume someone’s shyness or bad day means they are a rude person indefinitely.  Never to assume negatives, period.
  • I’m still learning to say no but I have a hard time overcommitting and then paying the consequences.
  • To slow down on everything – responding, planning, talking, all of it.
  • I’ve missed my garden so much, I’ll be perfectly OK with just gardening all the month of February.

Gotta run, hope you have a wonderful weekend – rain or shine! xx

    I went around town trying to make some interior decorating decisions today! I have such a fear of buying the wrong thing and hating what I’ve designed. Just trying to rest in the saying “if you love each individual item, it will all work together.”

      Hi Carissa! I LOVE that, and you can move around each piece throughout the house when it just flows. I’m also trying the motto – “Fewer, better things.” but that seems to pertain better with clothing ;)
