I'd Rather Be Limited : One of the few downsides of working for Purple Systems is the lack of sick days. (posted Dec 17, 12:00pm)

December Manicure Favorites : Yes, I'm recycling content today, bringing three of my favorite looks from my nail blog this month over here to the journal. I won't go all nail polish geek on you. (posted Dec 16, 7:24pm)

Three Books Behind : But the number is not really the point. I read because I enjoy it, because books entertain and inform me. Setting a reading goal is a way to say "this is important to me" and "I give myself permission to spend time on this". It works. (posted Dec 15, 10:31am)

Quilt Show Flashback : After a couple/few days of feeling like I was getting over the sinus crud, it seems to be staging a comeback, leaving me once again with an extra fuzzy head and low energy. Instead of dwelling on that, let's instead look at some pretty pictures. (posted Dec 14, 7:43pm)

Irrevocable : Maybe in ten years one of your reading this will come check in to the Selkirk Lodge and find me behind the hotel desk, working nights so as not to interfere with my skiing on powder days. It could happen. A lot of things could happen. (posted Dec 13, 6:28pm)

Social Butterfly I Am Not : It turned into tour, late lunch, coffee break, dinner, which was too much eating in too short a time, but it had to be done. (posted Dec 13, 7:16am)

This Is My Brain on Stress : I'm not sold on the snowman or the holly but haven't had time to fiddle with or remove or replace them (posted Dec 11, 4:22pm)

Let's Go Red Wings : Even the taunting was good natured, especially when a woman in our section yelled "Go back home and make some syrup". (posted Dec 10, 9:36pm)

Rest in Peace, Daddy Dale : I guess since he'd lingered this long I thought he'd just keep at it while longer. Mr. Karen's mom Joan once told me that the secret to their long marriage was that they were both stubborn, and I suppose at some level I thought Dale would be too stubborn to leave us before being around for one last Christmas.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Something : Some might say when overwhelmed by work, taking time out to decorate my office was not wise. (posted Dec 8, 3:57pm)

Gimme Some Sugar : It's been an extra social weekend for me, with the Instagram gathering yesterday and then today's adventure, a gingerbread house decorating party hosted by one of my coworkers. (posted Dec 7, 7:21pm)

Instagram Gathering : In which I meet some new friends and fail at the daily part of Holidailies. (posted Dec 7, 6:31am)

Brain Training : Surely spending time doing things that require me to pay close attention and remember stuff are better for my brain than scrolling through my Tumblr dashboard looking at pictures of animals sitting on capybaras. (posted Dec 5, 2:15pm)

On Still Not Acquiring Sock Monkeys : I need a quick win here as I sit in my bathrobe at home, cycling through fever and chills. When I saw that my December 3rd entry last year was about not buying sock monkeys, I thought "hey, I haven't bought a lot more monkeys since then, and have photos of most of them".

To Everything There Is a Season : A window cling retrospective. Thrill to the changing colors and and motifs! (posted Dec 3, 1:19pm)

Music, Family, and a Furry Kitten : In which I recap my Thanksgiving weekend, which started with hanging out in a bar in Chicago listening to live music. (posted Dec 2, 3:27pm)

Lucky 13 : It's December, so it's time for Holidailies. Of course I signed up. How could I not? This will be my 13th year participating, which makes it a longer-lived tradition than most things I'll do to celebrate this winter holiday season. (posted Dec 1, 9:29am)
