sorry so many non-photo or non-personal-ish posts lately...i miss making those! but...it's been a crazy-busy couple of weeks, with working, being sick (feeling much better now, thank you!) and moving and unpacking.
things are finally coming together around our house, after a week of hard work! just need to organize and put things away, unpack a few boxes, and then drop off a couple boxes of donations off at goodwill, and sell off some stuff that simply isn't going to work in the new place, probably on craigslist. still a lot to be done, but i'm pretty sure that by the end of *this* week, it will all be more settled.
my nikon is in the shop at the moment (*sniff*), and i haven't had too much time to thrift, or be very creative at all. i like taking my own photos and peppering my blog with them, as you know. and i miss sewing, and i'm actually feeling a strong urge to draw and paint! i feel don't feel very myself at the moment...it's odd. soon, soon, though. very soon! (i hope.)
a few other things that i'm loving at the moment:
-the red beans and rice we made for dinner yesterday, from scratch (from my dad's recipe). it was delish! nice and spicy. -these supergraphic wall paintings by the ndebele women of south africa are absolutely stunning. (as is fly, the blog that posted about them!) -the light in my new apartment...it's big and it comes from the south. it calms me and makes me happy. i heart it! -the collage work of vir.gen, whom i found on flickr. (one of their pieces is favorited above, in the grid.)
