I wake up and I’m fine
With my dreamings still on my mind
But it don’t take long, you see
For the demons to come and visit me
And I’ve got my problems
Sometimes love don’t solve them
And I end each day
In a song
Playing with type on a rainy day. Thanks to AviaT Studios for the amazing online tutorial.
Give it a try!
…young enough to still do it.
they just don’t make furniture like they used to and if you do find someone who happens to make it the way they used to, you will pay and pay…and pay.
i love clean modern lines and had been searching for the perfect sofa and chair for years now. that’s not to say i haven’t found any i liked. i found plenty, but i really didn’t like the price. some sofas alone were priced as high as 7,000!
then i finally found them—the perfect mid-century sofa and chair—from a friend of mine who needed to unload some items quickly. she gave me an awesome deal too, but they did need a lot of work. they were sturdy and the frame was solid hardwood and not shitty particle board, but the upholstery was trashed. still i couldn’t resist.
i was a bit intimidated and a little unsure if they were salvageable, but i found a great upholsterer who took great pride in restoring these amazing items to their former glory.
the cost? well, not as cheap as i’d hoped for, but TOTALLY worth every penny—and in the end, i couldn’t have found a sofa and chair of the same quality for the price i paid.
i am in love.
2012 was a pretty good year. Not a great year–just a pretty good year.
Resolution-wise I did pretty okay. I ate a bit better (for about 6 months), exercised more (for about 8 months) and worked harder to gain more pay, but I did not lose any weight.
Thinking about what I want to accomplish this coming year has left me feeling a little lost.
Apart from the obvious lose weight, eat right, exercise more, earn more money and blah blah blah, I really don’t know what I should resolve to do in 2013.
One thing I have been thinking about more and more is how important people are. Not just any people, but the people that mean the most to us–family and friends.
My past resolutions always had to do with my betterment, or my gain. What about the people I care about? What about resolving to do something more for them?
I think maybe I found my resolution for 2013.
