my week in objects (mostly).

September 28, 2018

five little things that made my week.

1. these chocolate chip cookies.

{and feeling well enough to eat them.}

2. these clean sheets.

{sometimes you just really need a mid-week sheet change.}

3. this ginger.

{for helping to settle my stomach.}

4. these dahlias.

{for bringing a tiny bit of good cheer.}

5. these socks.

{three colors. one size. one already gone missing, but i’m holding out hope.}


other things:

elect women.

how can you be speechless?

people are listening.

we still have not learned our mistakes.

not even a hint of composure.


</trigger warning>


take good care.

    Hi! I wondered what your apartment tip is for laundry. Do you use a laundromat or laundry service? How do you deal with things that can’t be dried (most of my clothes)!
