Weathering the Storm

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, those of us on the east coast are preparing for Hurricane Irma.

Most of us feel Houston’s pain and are hoping no one else has to go through it again. Fingers crossed for us on the east coast. Already two in Puerto Rico have lost their lives to this storm, this deadly storm is leaving many of us feeling dreaded. Miami evacuated and as of this morning, the new predicted route now includes Charleston. We might be facing another evacuation, just one year after Hurricane Matthew. I can tell you that the people of Charleston haven’t forgotten that. Even before this morning’s new route, we were out of water supplies last night at several stores.

The Fourth Of July

Happy birthday, United States of America!!!

Hopefully you’re like me and the rest of America, taking a nice long weekend to celebrate.

I’m taking it a little easy this week. Do feel free to check out this post I did last year on the theory of creating stunning red, white, and blue rooms.

How did your weekend go?

 

Welcome Kali!!!

Taking Stock

Making It Lovely is one of my favorite blogs to follow along. When she posted something called “Taking Stock” and shared a couple of links to other bloggers (here and here) who also did it, I just had to give it my best shot. So here goes:

Making: Progress on getting my apartment well designed.

Cooking: Dinner in the evening. Likely Hamburger Helpers tonight. I need to make a cake soon, but when am I going to find the time?

Drinking: Coffee in the morning. (more…)

The Indigo Lattice

My blog is called The Indigo Lattice for two simple reasons- ok, maybe one complicated (hey, we can’t all be simple), one simple reason.

Complicated reason #1: I love blue in general. I don’t think I’ve ever met a shade of blue I didn’t like. The Blue Lattice sounded so generic and something even I would lose interest in over time. So, I decided to go with a specific shade of delicious blue. It came down to navy and indigo. There is just something about the word “indigo” that evokes my imagination.
