breathing spring

it was warm enough today to have the windows in my apartment open. it seems like a little thing, but smelling the fresh air, feeling the wind off the lake, having the sun light up the room - it was the most awesome feeling. winter here is so long... all the cold and dark says are really hard on me.

it sounds so cliche, and i'm sure the internet is rolling it's eyes at me, but when winter finally lifts, i get such a burst of energy. it really is like i've just woken up.

a little bloglove for louise bourgeois - one of my absolute favorites. she is better known for her sculptures, but i am so drawn to her paintings and textile works.

gina and i went to ikea this morning and ate meatballs and bought useful things and talked about job stuff. it's sunny and almost springy, which makes me feel like i should be cleaning. instead, i'm eating some leftover sweet potato risotto and trying to figure out how to end up in the hooray! section of this venn diagram.

hot mess

i'm back from my trip but totally discombobulated. how is it already 10pm sunday night? what about everything i have to do before tomorrow morning?

i haven't unpacked, my apartment is a mess, i burned the tofu, i am eyeballs deep in grading exams AND sketchbooks, i spilled juice on my sofa, i can't find my glasses, and i now have zero food in my house. what is happening here!? why am i so totally a hot mess?

i sort of feel like how jeni looked when she woke up from sleeping in the car to discover what i had done with her hair while she was unconscious. except that was actually pretty funny.

we walked around the south congress area of austin today and saw lots of colorful little bungalows (but only from the outside, sadly). i especially liked the orange ones.

not coming home

i listened to their cd on my ipod on the plane and am still humming this song to myself, but in a way less harmonically lovely way than this, obviously. i still can't get over the voices on these girls...

the green belt

becca described it as "verdant".
i describe it as "oh-my-lord-i-think-i-may-have-just-actually-discovered-paradise".

we found it in front of becca's apartment. it is the perfect plant, needing only air and light, (which means it should be hearty and robust and therefore survive becca's habit of killing things).
