I’ve moved the kitchen around a bit. Cleaned it up, took the cake stand with old licorice wrappers to the basement. The herbs have been relocated to the spare bedrooom-cum-office. It’s usually warmer up there. More sunlight. More space to grow, we’re hoping.
This leaves the little nook for me. I put a chair in front of the window and took advantage of the view. Post and rail. Snowfall. A flimsy excuse for a dog fence butting up on a rain gutter. Chickens in the distance. Snowfall. I made some tea yesterday morning, sharped a #2 pencil and set to work.
The dogs at my feet, I paid some bills. The dogs at my feet, I shared a peanut butter cookie split for ways. Licked an old set of stamps and pressed to an envelope to no avail. Got a glue stick from the drawer we keep some scattered poker chips. Snuck it out to the mailbox in my pajamas and an overcoat.
This week, I got new stationery to break out. It’s from Basic Invite, the company we used for our wedding invites. This time, I just wanted some little notes. Quick and small, they come in handy. Like when I sent my best friend, Carissa, a little souvenir from our high school days. Scribbled in my poor penmanship, I ended it just at the bottom margin with “X, Brett”.
Basic Invite was our wedding supplier for its versatility. We worked with a designer to make our own. But for these, I chose a light blue called “sea spray”. Accents of dark grey for the font and cream envelopes (but 40 options to choose from!). Unlimited possibilities, but I like the warm palette I chose. It pairs well with black tea and peanut butter cookies and yellow pencils and snow days, I think.
And cheers to more notes. We’ve just hit March. We’ve a thousand opportunities to say “hi” to loved ones left for the year.
