my week in objects (mostly).

June 26, 2009
five little things that made my week.
1. ferns on the porch.ferns
{because of the way the evening light filters through them}.
2. ice cubes.porchglasses
{because they make everything more festive}.
3. buffalo (1)
{because there is nothing like sipping milky coffee out of a thick white mug}.
4. blueberry waffles.bluebwaffle
{because when i was about to have a melt-down about the lack of coffee shops in which i could do my work and eat a decent breakfast, james whisked me out for a big old malted waffle. not exactly a working breakfast, but the perfect remedy all the same}.
5. vintage chemistry glassware.vintagebottles
{because james found a neat little pile of it and it’s the perfect combination of nerdy scientist and nerdy historian, just like us}.
so, what little something made your week?

    Love milky coffee in a thick white mug. Why does it always taste/feel better that way.

    O and breakfast yum!

    This morning: walking the dog early, snuggling with my three year old, coffee and good conversation at work.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    The chemistry glassware is wonderful, my fella is a scientist so we would appreciate that. 🙂

    My favorite pair of summer pajamas made my week, I'm still in them having a long lazy morning.

    The chemistry glasses are awesome. But I'll probably be thinking of those waffles all day now. This week, it was seeing my guy's play that made it turn up roses. Happy weekend!

    I totally agree about coffee in thick white china! There is something so clean and pleasing about white china! Things that made my week are a delicious pomegranate green tea from Celestial Seasonings with honey, helping my mom to start a blog and join Twitter, my Zumba class,and walking home from downtown last night on a deliciously sunny summer evening after days and days of rain.

    oh, I love milky coffee! I almost always drink mine out of a white floral mug I got from Starbucks. Makes me happy for sure.

    another thing that made my week? getting a good review from my editor during my one-year evaluation today! yippee! (not that I was that worried, but you never know…)

    hope you have a great weekend!

    what is a "malted waffle"? i think i want one for dinner!

    what little something made my week? today i found a tiny 1 oz. blue tin with "NIVEA Creme" written in white across the face of the lid. there is a pretty textured foil seal beneath the lid, protecting the creme. i found it in the chinatown walgreens. it was on sale for .74. it is simple and lovely and makes me happy.

    wonderful photos.

    a priceless scene of the glowing setting sunlight on a green field in the country made my week. i stopped to capture it with my camera. but it was being there that was the great part. i wish the camera could have caught every sense i got there—not just the sights.

    The coffee and waffles made me smile…I seriously do think drinking something in the perfect vessel makes all the difference! This week I was just so happy to see he sunshine (finally) and have some downtime with my dogs and husband. I took a lot of pictures, too.

  • Reply Simply Mel June 28, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    I love how James helped to make your week even more spectacular – what a guy! Photos are great!

    I enjoyed a week of less computer, more reading, and eating every meal outdoors!
