Blegh. Blegh is a Word, Right? Let's Say It's a Word.

Overdid it yesterday, apparently. Jason and I had to run an errand, which was alright, and we had lunch, where I became sleepy and didn't feel great but that was okay. Then we went over to my in-laws for dinner and I nearly fell asleep at the counter two or three times. The ride home was no fun at all.

Dinner was fantastic, by the way; my sister-in-law just spent a few weeks over in Italy taking a cooking class abroad, and she cooked for us last night to show us some of what she learned. We had delicious caponata, which I have never had fresh before, and then a dish whose name I never learned but I suspect is some variation on "chicken with grapes and cashews". That was really amazing, too. Dinner with my in-laws is always awesome, so I'm glad that I went. Jason and I had a really good time.

By the time we got home, though, I was beginning to regret my choices and basically just laid down on the couch and read a book until I could fall asleep.

I woke up today incredibly sore, not particularly happy, and feeling like despite my seven hours I had hardly slept a wink. I've just sort of dozed in and out all day. Jason stopped by during lunch, which I managed to be at least a little bit conscious for. Otherwise I am basically good for nothing today.

I may not have much positive to say today, but here, have a couple of really pretty things I've seen on etsy lately. At least I'll feel like I gave you guys something worthwhile in return for you reading all these words.


Made by a local Greenville artist, which is even cooler. I kinda really need this in my life. I would love to have it hanging on my wall above the TV, and it even matches my orange wall.

Hmmm... I plot.

So there. Now I feel like we're a little bit back on track. 


  1. Oof, I'm sorry you felt crappy after having fun. MC jokes about me doing this all the time -- if I get sick, I whine like a baby, lay around and rest, feel slightly better and inevitably get bored, get up and do something, overexert myself, feel shittier, whine like a baby.....rinse, repeat. I hope that a little rest helped level you back up.

    Also: I dig the vintage style of those prints. Awesome colors.

  2. Haha, yeah, recovery is just a vicious cycle for me right now. I keep thinking, "It's been a week, surely I can do this!" and then... nope.

    I am a color hound. Everything I love tends to be a ridiculous series of every color under the sun. I joke that I always look like somebody's eccentric fourth grade art teacher.

  3. I'm a huge fan of the first piece of artwork. Love the mix of pattern, shape and color <3

    Colour Me Classic

  4. Thanks so much for checking out my blog! Don't worry- once winter comes and everyone up here is frozen, you'll have your revenge! I've been scrolling through your blog, and it looks like you've been having a few tough days! I had to have a pretty serious surgery a few years ago so I remember the days. You can't even enjoy lying around and being lazy because it's so frustrating not to be able to do things! I hope everything keeps getting better and you're back to your old self soon!


  5. Haley - Thanks for coming by! Yeah, I am more than a little bit a fan of these really stylized animals/places. Something about it just feels right to me.

    Kaitlin - Thanks! I am now able to leave the house for short bursts (although, obviously I have repercussions, haha), so I am hopeful that I can start my life back up next week. You know your cabin fever is bad when you're excited for WORK to start back up.


Comments make the world go round - please leave your thoughts and I'll make it my goal to answer!
