the ultimate setup


Pretty much this is the setup I've been enjoying every afternoon all week. Not pictured is the television in front of my dining-table-turned-sewing-table, so I've been polishing off season seven of Gilmore Girls and the movie Mansfield Park.

Since becoming unemployed my computer time has reduced to a mere fraction of what it used to be, resulting in over 200 unread blog posts in my Google Reader and no pinning for days. This computer break is kind of nice, really. When I hit the job search hard again, though, I'll inevitably spend more time on the computer and will hopefully return to blogging regularly and commenting and pinning.

And when I hit the job search hard, I'll have to confront the looming threat of the professional life crisis that's been hovering over my mind and emotions, the crisis that will force me to define what I want and what I'm going to do, the crisis that will very likely compel me to take some risks. But for today, I'll ignore the crisis cloud and transform the dining table into a sewing table and continue watching Downton Abbey on Netflix.

What did you think of Mansfield Park? It has been popping up on my Netflix for weeks.

I watched two episodes of Gilmore Girls season two (she's just barely broken off the engagement to Max) while reorganizing my bookcases last night. Perfect evening.

(Later interrupted, but whatever.)


Unrelated, do you ever dye your hair? I've been seriously contemplating dying mine darker and warmer (think GG color, actually). Thoughts?

I like your setup.

I feel you with the professional life crisis feeling.

I feel the exact same way.

But we soldier on.

Oh man. I just came back here and saw your new banner. Me gusta mucho. Seriously.

That is one sweet setup. I'm hoping to have something like that going on after the kids go back to school!

I'm all for ignoring a crisis, for awhile at least.

There's no crisis that can't be soothed by a little sewing therapy.

I may have some rather strong and agreeable feelings regarding the pictures on your wall.

I LOVE ironing because you get to just stand there for hours (at least it takes me hours) and watch whatever you want. Add sewing and I'm sure it's perfection.

Also, I love the poppies on your wall!
