(Scarf is a funny word....) has been getting chilly here (especially in the mornings!) and a scarf has become a daily item for me. Though I usually just throw on one of my trusty ol' infinity scarfs - this video I found today over at Toque Girls has me very inspired to try some new looks! Here, in about 5 minutes, is 25 ways to tie a scarf.

P.S. - Once you get through the whole video, you can click on the little picture and it will take you to a video on how to do that specific one.

Thanks for the clarification

As an editor, I am constantly explaining when to use i.e. and when to use e.g. Maybe next time, I will pass this along! Love it! To view the full poster and explanation, click here!

Long days

Between my full time regular job at a national non-profit, I also edit for a group of child psychologists in the city - everything from letters, to progress notes, to reports (some 20+ pages), and magazine articles. I also volunteer for a new music group (Land's End Chamber Ensemble) on the board of directors. And actually, tomorrow is my last day at my full time job and I am moving onto a new charity, so add that to my stress-mix.

So, this is why I am never here anymore! Between job 1, job 2, volunteering, seeing family, spending time with my husband (who I haven't even seen this week because we are both over our heads in work) and trying to have a social life and sleep - it is just a lot! I am not making excuses, just explaining myself :) But I haven't forgotten about my little blog, and I read all of yours almost daily (ok, sometimes weekly... ).

One day, hopefully, life will slow down. One day, hopefully, I will find a spare moment.

In the meantime, here is an Adele song I am obsessed with (lucky for Joe I wear headphones so he doesn't have to listen to it on repeat).

Happy rest-of-summer! Back to editing reports for me...

mini golf

Mary is visiting from Vancouver - I love Mary! So this evening we went to Canada Olympic Park for some mini golf and then to Licks for ice cream. Love these ladies!
