I've been working slowly on decorating the house (not doing so well). There quick moments of poster hanging and plans to frame some pictures, but I haven't really done much of anything. I've concentrated more on my bedroom and I'm pretty happy with how things look - it really does feel like my space. So, since I haven't started any projects yet (but boy, I do have some ideas!) I thought it would be good practice to do something simple like detailed shots from my bedroom and give a little update about how things are going.
|Chamomile tea - a necessary staple for sleeping and anxiety. Tea is magic.|
|Shells and knick knacks - I collect shells and rocks. I'm not sure where the army man came from...|
|Grow kit! I'm really excited to eat these oyster mushrooms once they're big enough. Not so much now, but in Fall and Winter I enjoy the musty smell of mushrooms drying around my room.|
|Coffee. Every day.|
|Found this awesome hand in Portland! I'm not quite sure what to do with it. I love how weird it is.|
|Traded my friend a bottle of Pimm's for this type writer. Thanks, friend! I've been typing songs, letters, poetry, stories, and have tried to write at least one positive line a day about something I've witnessed or enjoyed. This has been healing my soul big time.|
|This is where I hide the bourbon and scotch. I've been making a point of trying different kinds of whiskeys to expand my whiskey knowledge and also to share good things with friends.|
|Batman! He is almost 1 year old. He hates all humans, but I think he likes me a little bit more than everyone else.|
|I tried to grow crystals in little jars and they came out pretty awful. They look kind of like sea anemone alien spawn. I will probably dump the crystals and fill them up with rocks, sand, shells, or whatever is my wont. Stupid crystals.|
There we go. After the shaky start of this year, it is really important to me that my bedroom and house feel like home. More importantly, the town I live in is becoming more and more my home everyday. I am meeting new people, making some really awesome new friends, learning new things, feeling like I belong here and generally just being happy.
