Well, where did this week go? I've been crouching in front of a computer this week madly uploading, designing, and finishing up a website for Sarah Jane Studios. It's really wonderful to finally have a "space" for everything...all in one place. But wow....there are details that I had no idea about. Kinda like building a house.
"You mean I have 26 choices of light switch covers?"
Kinda like that. I just want white light switch covers. Just plain white.
Also kinda like when I went to get lunch boxes at Target for my kids the week before school. We've never done lunch at school before. I was loftily thinking there would be a few pails, some girl and some boy. Maybe I'd get lucky and find Shinzi Katoh at Target. I get hopeful like that.
But then I walked down to the school section and found an ENTIRE ISLE of all these soft, insulated, hard, colorful, strapped, velcroed, snapped, zippered, vertical, horizontal, super-hero, princess, gender neutral, animal shaped, mountain hiker, posh, cheap, comes with a thermos, comes without a thermos, looks-like-Mom-chose-this, looks-like-my kid-chose-this choices and I was frozen in the the middle of the isle. Paper bag lunches were looking pretty good at this point.
Keeping it simple can sometimes be hard. Cause there is a lot of "fluff" you have to wade through to get there. That's where I've been all week. Trying to keep thing clean and simple.
When some of the pears were picked this week and laid on the table, it was like a breath of fresh air. Picking your own pears off the tree. That's simple. I hope this site does just that. Keeps things happy, inspiring and simply simple.
I'm not there yet. The blog is still messy, and well....my site isn't live yet.
But I promise it will be wonderful. Kinda like a really great weekend.
