and the other gold

last night, i worked late & got my deadline (which was revisions of revisions) done. there is nothing worse than going into a weekend with a deadline on your shoulders. today is the last day before the weeklong holiday break...oh em gee, does it get any better than this?

last night, i realized that i haven't done a funky fivespot in a while.

1) if you didn't sign up for twelve days of cookies last year, you have to do it this year. food network hits you up with cookie recipes each day. check out the past years' cookies. stock up your pantry so you can whip them up in no time.

2) helvetica comes out on tuesday! it is at the top of my netflix list. after that is the last three disks of my so-called life, shaolin soccer and tying the knot. this documentary looks interesting.

3) lucy mae & blossom are recuperating nicely. i missed their antics all day yesterday and didn't say "no, lucy!" at all. dr. wood is our neighborhood vet. he is some kind of wonderful, as is his staff...a regular ol' dr. doolittle. lucy's brother, lil'G, is going under the knife today in houston.

4) if you haven't tried tazo's wild sweet orange tea, you must. in fact, i am going to chase this coffee with a mug of it.

5) tomorrow is our local library book sale. check your library for the next sale. i cannot wait & will be there before the doors open.

today, i am cleaning up and shooting items for my etsy shop. to have the time to clean is beyond fantastic. the whole house needs it, as does the studio. i am halfway through with the hood part of my knitting project. hope to get to work on that tonight.

The tea sounds soothing....have you tried some of the Yogi Teas? I started trying them at my yoga sutdio~my favorite (so far) is Classic India Spice. It has quite a bite, and that's why I love it. With just a squirt or two of Agave Nectar it is some good..Our new HEB carries some of them, but not this one~I had to order it. I will bring you some in December.
Have a great weekend~the weather is GREAT. Just what I like, plus my eyes watered on the way in this morning!

I love your funky fivespot. Great idea. Kudos on meeting your deadline and getting so much other stuff done. Don't you just love it? I'm off to check out that cookie link. Happy Friday.

Thanks for the heads up on the 12 days of cookies newsletter. I love collecting recipes...but never cook!? Weird. And that tea sounds delish. I love hot tea!

Mmmm tea. My fav right now is Trader Joe's White Pomegranite.
I couldn't get to TJ and was looking for something similar at the supermarket. nada. Everything was just artificial flavorings. bleh.

From one graphic designer to another, let me know how Helvetica was.
And say hello to Frutiger while you're at it.
: )

Yuumm...a new tea to try! I love teas as much as I love coffees. ;o)
Can't wait to see your hoodie scarf! Glad your furbabies are recovering just fine. xoxo

I love lists, girl. This is the only time numbers make me happy.

Let us know how the movies turn out, and I will look for the tea. I never thought I'd hear myself say it, but I'm hooked on green tea with jasmine right now.

Enjoy your book sale!

Just thinking about your Blossom and Lucy Mae warms my heart.
