The Downing Tote

Not nearly as big or unwieldy as my Granny’s purse, but she’d slow clap for me and tell me I’m moving in the right direction. And then she’d see how hard she could hit one of her kids over the head with this thing.

I put my hand up on your hip

… and then touch my phone and now whatever was on your hip will end up on my face.

Inspired by a month of birthdays

First person to make a joke about the elephants gets a poke in the butt.

Tried and tested

Crowdsourcing my friends for ideas to experiment with my hair. Sadly none of them are polygamists so tips for elaborate French braids will have to wait.

Fixin’ to

I admire people who can wear wacky outfits and go crazy with color, but I am not those people. I wish I were more like those people.

And now something completely trivial

Hey. How are you? I’m changing the subject today to something totally banal and inconsequential because my emotions are completely fried like they do it up in Kentucky.

Clearing off some cluttered countertops

Because I can’t find the car keys underneath three different phone cords, a battery charger, a package of wipes and a week’s worth of unopened mail.

Hand-dipped vases

Did you know that new mindsets can be reached through decorative accessories? Probably not because I just made that up.

I unpacked a whole box

“That thang don’t go there, hon.”

Reading nook

Where I will be sitting when I finish the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.
