rainy day distractions

It’s raining again today. All day. And tomorrow. And Thursday. I usually don’t mind the rain, but I’m finding it hard to concentrate on the second comprehensive exam I need to start writing. I think the damp chill in the house is contributing to my restlessness: C is working on getting the downstairs ready to install the radiant heat, but until it’s on, we spend most of our evenings gathered in front of the one space heater we borrowed and trying to stay cozy under our down comforter. Might be time to go find another one because Mustard likes to lay right in front of it and block the heat.

Things from the web that make a dreary day feel more cheery:

Throw rugs from Florian Pucher (via decor8): They remind me of the farm land where I grew up. Just add in a few blue-green lakes, and you have a carpet of central NY.

Some people think this blog is crass, but I think it’s genius. Always good for a laugh. I’ve cried laughing so hard at some of her posts. I can’t believe what sells on etsy.

My answer to this question is YES. I’d hire someone to clean it once a month. All those windows and all that glass is totally worth it.

Might have found C’s bday cake for November on design*sponge: Guinness cake anyone? Yes please.
