Grains of Salt

Trivial, small, cheery... glimpses into the items that shape my day-to-day. 

I was cooped up indoors most of last week writing job applications and clearing out clutter. It felt good to get out this weekend, if only for a few hours each day. The air has a new chill in it and feels crisp, winter is coming and all that. It was nice to see so much sun and green after nothing but my computer screen and coffee mug all week long. Also when working from home any excuse to put on pants, run a mascara wand through my eye lashes, and brush my hair is very welcome. 

Unexpected backyard in a neighborhood garden shop.

I love finding free things on the street. Long time subscriber to one person's trash is my treasure.

Up until this week I had no idea how many holiday plants are incredibly toxic to dogs. Since we can't have red berries in our home, I'm enjoying them in the wild of the city. They're as pretty on the branch as in a jar in my home, right? Meh, probably.

Most days Potato drives Jack absolutely insane. Always in his face, gnawing and being generally obnoxious. As one does at one year of age. Thankfully there are rare moments of calm, like this one. I walked into the bedroom on Saturday and my heart melted to see them snuggled up like this in their holiday sweaters. Yes, I am that person now.

Last of the fall leaves. There's been such a chill in the air, snow is definitely on the way. Some exciting things in the works over the next few weeks. Looking forward to sharing with all of you!
