The weekend, briefly (and slightly late)

I'm off to a slow start today! My beloved (and much abused computer) finally died on me yesterday, taking with it lots of stuff that I hadn't bothered to back up. I am dreading having to go shop for a new computer. Technical information overload + sticker shock = stress. Ugh.

Let's focus on nicer things, shall we?

Like steaming mugs of tea and books.
drinking, reading

And pretty messes of scattered beads.

And stacks of paper.

That's better, isn't it?

Um, I realize that this makes it look like I did not leave my dining room table the entire weekend and I assure you this is not the case. I spent some time working on the living room floor as well. The carpet just isn't very photogenic.

  1. Haha, love it -- if I took photos of my weekend, it would probably look like I was in bed all weekend! But I was productive, truly -- so hey, at least you've got a great tablecloth + lighting pictured here ;)

  3. On my mobile as my computer died this weekend too - it seems to be going around! Ours is in the shop, so I am waiting on word if we too will be entering fray of electronics purchasing. Not fun. Hope it works out on your end!

  4. My condolences go out to you, I loathe tech-related stress. Nothing makes me punchier.

    I'm not a beader, but my siser always has been, and one of my favourite little things to do is sink my fingers into a tub of beads :)

  5. My computer almost died on me the other day... luckily I think it was just a little bit of a loose connection to the hard drive. A quick pop of the lid and double check... seems to be working now! Good luck shopping!

  6. Oh no - I'm going to back up the minute I get home today! This is my worst nightmare (shopping for anything under duress is so stressful!)

    Otherwise, your weekend looks quite lovely, as always!

  9. I must be a freak, because if my computer died (let's assume everything was saved) I'd be SO excited to shop for another.

  15. I LOVE the tablecloth you have in this blog. Any idea where you got the cloth or did you buy yardage and make it yourself?
