Monday, with sunlamp

January 27, 2020

I’m hugging my sun lamp today. It’s been such a gloomy winter here. Not necessarily cold, definitely not snowy — we haven’t really had a big snowfall since Thanksgiving week, and nothing at all in January. Just…lots of clouds. I wouldn’t mind the gloom so much if we had snow to go along with it.

I think I’ve doubled my tea consumption over the last year. Clear result of these tumultuous times.

I’m embarking on a redecoration of my house. I think this may be a bit of midlife crisis — my birthday is tomorrow. But the concept of having a house that looks like it was actually decorated with intent? And not thrown together? Not cluttered? That feels unaccountably thrilling right now.

I moved all my plants from a shelf that was in the way to a series of small tables and stools in the corner by the window. It actually looks like it came out of a design book and everything. It’s astonishing.

I’m trying to take before and after pictures, but this is mostly just demonstrating to me how difficult home interior photography really is. So no pics, sorry.
