    Those clouds in the photos are beautiful!

    Dry skin, nail polish, my computer screen needs a good cleaning, and its time to get up and go for a run. Happy Tuesday.

    dry skin, an annoying wheeze, and my too long hair

  • Reply S@sha January 25, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    definitely grown up jobs and dry skin, but i live in nm, so dry skin is a year long puzzle.

    Lovely photos, e! I hear ya about the stresses of life – esp. health care! My puzzles this week are packing up my life to move to DC, a nasty head cold, finding a permanent place to live, hoping the new job will be a good decision, sewing a throw pillow (I am not a good sewer), and visiting all my favorite Maine haunts before I leave!

    DRY SKIN, dirty dishes, start of a new semester, payin' bills, big race, late nights…gee the list can go on and on!

  • Reply Erin January 25, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    to everyone: looks like we need to figure out a dry skin fix…will try to drum up something good…

    Gorgeous photos. For me: teaching, travel, the RI DMV, Bollywood movies. And dry skin, of course.

    Just bought some St. Ives' lotion–it usually does the trick.

    I am loving your snowy photos. They are beautiful!
    for me….relationships, monoprint work, baking, the possibility of slowing down a 3 year old for more than 10 seconds… oh yeah and how can a fridge look so messy after cleaning it to perfection a week ago?

    Dry skin, for sure. Even with our weird spring like weather, it is DRY and my skin is miserable.

    Loving those pictures!

  • Reply Tucker January 25, 2011 at 11:25 pm

    gorgeous photos girl!!

    lots of changes ahead for me too but i'm sure we'll both do well. grown up jobs are sometimes fun (:

  • Reply Doe January 26, 2011 at 12:28 am

    Tiny girl: Please tell me you are running across a blanketed field and not a frozen pond:that's what moms think about lately. As for skin, any number of lovely oils do the trick, lavishly applied as often as possible and warmed, if ye can…As for grown-up jobs, well, ain't there so many choices-arrggh–both paid and unpaid, and each so equally important and satisfying and equally frustrating,from 3-year-olds and messy rooms and fridges to health insurance and payin' bills. Do whate'er brings joy to you and good to others–that always works. And growing old–well, that's the best possible outcome. I'm gunning hard for that one. xo mom

    I'm puzzled how people pay/do it all and do you think if I just add more lotion the wrinkles between my eyes will go away?

  • Reply Sarah Leslie January 31, 2011 at 2:06 am
