This is what I sat down to a little while ago. I sat for a while, checked my email, ordered some stuff and then decided that I cannot stand this clutter any longer. This is the loft area outside my bedroom. Nobody really sees it unless they are going to my bedroom, so I always leave it for last to clean. Haven't touched it since Christmas and it is out of control. Of course I know where everything is - it's just moving the stacks around to get to it that is bugging me. My "in-basket" is definitely over flowing.
And this project needs to be finished.
Then I walked into my bedroom, trying to decide if I liked the newly installed wooden blinds.
I sat on my bed to look at them some more.
From here, I couldn't see my desk.
I like the view from here much better.

As one of my favorite characters always said, "Tomorrow is another day."

I think I'll clean my desk tomorrow.

In the meantime, here's what else went on around here today......a little e-tail therapy.

It's FREEZING here! It must be cold for me to be admitting to that.
I think a little bit of hot chocolate is just what I need, and can you think of anything
cuter than this to warm you up????? If you'd like one of your own you can order it here.

And while you're there you might just find something else for your sweet tooth!
Dylan Lauren, entrepreneur and daughter of Ralph Lauren (my very fave clothing designer), was on Ooopraah yesterday - my sick day - and she is the most delightful young woman.
She followed her childhood dream and opened herself this big old candy store - definitely on my list of places to visit when I get to New York.
I immediately thought of my cousin's little girl, Libby, who will be 7 next month. Every time I see her she whispers to me, "Do you have any candy?". Of course I do. I always do and she knows it so I sneak a little to her and always send her home with a stash in her pockets. Last time they were here I gave Chloe, Libby, and Sam (her big sis) the fixings to make some candy topped pretzels. Libby ate half the chocolate before it made it to the pretzels. LOL! I can't wait to see her face when I present her with her very own candy bin and tote bag on her birthday.

Here is Libby, the candy connoisseur, on the left with her sister Sam at Joe & Abby's wedding last August. I think she has chocolate on her mouth in this photo. Abby's mom had personalized chocolate bars made up for the wedding reception and Libby spotted those right away. Sent her home with a couple extra.
Aren't they the cutest little girls? I love to photograph them. They have the greatest personalities and are so much fun to be around.
That's all for today. Gonna shut up now.

We have an extra pair of needle nose pliers if Glen would like to borrow them.
