I caught cold from the MR. so I have a day home to rest. The landlord came over to fix the heater that went out night before last. Don't fear! It's not the only one in the house, and it hasn't been so cold that a pair of long underwear and socks couldn't send you into a sweat. I know, because it did last night! Or was that fever? Regardless, I've managed to take a shower and put the soap dish on the wall for the chalk board. I should have taken a "before" photo... as the soap dish was a bit rusted and had a kind of iridescent glaze on it that was really pretty, if it weren't for the rust. So this week-end I took some primer and RustOleum spray paint to it. I think the black is much more handsome with the yellow walls.
Now I just need to finish collaging all the light-switch plates! But that will be a task for another day. MR. came home on his lunch and made me a grilled cheese sandwhich and that's about all I have the energy for. NAP-TIME! Maybe I'll do some knitting later.
PS: eraser is a cotton knit square I made in seed stitch. It works great! I made a whole pile of them in different bright colors to scrub my face with, but they are serious multitaskers! Sometimes I use them to polish my silver jewelry with baking-soda toothpaste!

- After Innocence by Brenda Joyce. Mostly this was inspired by a recent blog post by my dear friend, Dumpling, over at ain't nothin'. Turns out it's the VERY SAME AUTHOR that Dumplin' has been chronicling with doodles. I picked it up for her as a present.
- Prisoner in Paradise by Marjorie Lewty. This one is a real-live "Harlequin Romance" woot woot! I have a cover of one of these books that my dear studio-mate Elizabeth had given to me years ago, and it's posted in our studio, so I was able to immediately recognize it's sister!
