things are quiet around here

which is good. I am wearing pajamas a lot. also good. when things are quiet like this, ideas roll like marbles around my head. they bump into each other and shift into positions that are both lovely and unsettling. and (like a million other people in the world) I'm thinking about the year behind me, the year ahead. I'm ready to string words and sentences together in a more organized way.

but first, a clementine. and a christmas cookie. and more of that thing they call lounging.


  1. here, here to the lounging!!!
    may it find you happy ;)

    happy new year!

    Karli ;)

  2. Also reveling in the lounging here. And Christmas cookies. We have grapefruit instead of clementines. Trying to herd the ideas, too. (ha - I usually don't have much luck with that)

  3. hee. we had a total jammie day today.
    and today, when i was in shock about how many cookies and candy we have in the house, paul said, "ok. let's line it all up and get to work!" because we are cutting out sugar for 10 weeks starting on january 2.

    wish me luck on THAT! hee.

    going to go hit up the bowl o' clementines now.
    happy, stellar, sparkly new year to you, too, ms. A. xo

  10. I'm having the same kind of days. Who needs to get dressed in the winter, anyway? :)

  11. sounds like my winter survival mode...add butt glued to couch, reality tv and endless hours of surfing the interwebs. oh wait - i take out the garbage once in a while too for exercise. happy 2010 to you and yours.

  12. yay! lounging=creativity=happiness!!

  15. Happy New Year, Beautifuls. I don't care that's it been one time and four years ago, I miss you.

    May all things great get dumped on your head in 2010.

  16. I love reading your blog, and seeing your photos on flickr. You are simply the bee's knees! I wanted to thank you for inspiring me - your "__ Things To Do Before I Turn __" lists are a wonderful idea, a great way to spur creativity and moments of happiness. My birthday is in a couple of days, and I plan to spend some time in my 31st year crossing items off my own list.

    Wishing you the happiest of New Years, Andrea. I hope 2010 is full of joy and abundance for you and your family :-)


  17. Your lists bring me a lovely sort of peace. What a terrific year.
