Lately we've been sorting through all our earthly possessions and deciding what to keep and what to sell. You know how it goes, with the amount of times you've moved! Turns out we are selling most everything! My beautiful standing mirror and our dresser/computer desk are going to their new home next weekend, our kitchen island, today and yesterday (appropriately, on record store day) we sold our record player. We were going to keep it but we realized it wasn't a super special one and we did get it for free... so there you go!
Other things: I've been really into mending things. Sewing patches on my favorite pair of pants, turning lots of winter clothes into summer clothes with scissors mostly... nothing fancy or that requires talent but still super satisfying and fun! More details later, I hope.
The light fell on my mobile beautifully for about a quarter of an hour this morning... its funny how light works. If I hadn't slumped on the couch at just the right moment I would have missed this little patch of it.
Been listening to lots of Belle and Sebastian, Camera Obscura, Alexi Murdoch, etc and after a week or so of listening to them obsessively I realized they are all Scottish... I mean I knew they were but hadn't realized that I was so into Scottish bands. Evidently I am. Makes sense, I suppose, being as The Proclaimers, I'm Gonna Be, has been my favorite song forever and a half. Anyways this is one of my favorite of their songs... obviously because of the gin. And its beautiful. I hope you've been listening to it while your reading this little note to you.
