These Days: January

knitting two projects: this sweater and a colorful striped throw with leftover yarn
planning several shelving projects that will (hopefully) help me get better organized
cooking root vegetables for days to try to keep up with our winter CSA farm share
reading The Rosie Project
enjoying the glow from our pellet stove
watching Liz Lemon eat night cheese and hook up with Don Draper
listening to Elise Blaha Cripe's podcast Elise Gets Crafty
bundling up in eighteen layers every time I go outside
buying these shoes in nude for work
painting my studio / office space this color and this color (!!)
wanting this book to hurry up and come out already
missing the anticipation of the holidays
patting myself on the back for fixing a bad wall patch all by myself (thanks Ace Hardware)
loving Saturday afternoon movies on the couch with my wife

p.s. Make this pasta this weekend. It's perfect for these cold winter nights.
