I'm having kind of blue day. Nothing in particular, just thrown off because my basement has been destroyed by the flood. The basement is where I send my children when I need a minute alone. Which sounds really sadistic, but it was actually a nice playroom. Now it's just a concrete floor with moldy walls. So I can't send them down there anymore. Right? Darn. It's totally self indulgent of me to even wallow about it when there are people waving from their rooftops to be helicoptered to dry land. Well, hopefully they're not still there. But even so.
And last night I stayed up till the wee damn hour watching HBO's Carnivale, first season, on DVD. Trying to watch just one HBO show, when the whole series is at your fingertips, is like eating just one piece of warm caramel corn. Impossible. The show is set in the depression, and follows a creepy and mystical circus. If you liked the books Water For Elephants and Geek Love - then you'll enjoy this series. The problem is that being starved for alone time + great DVD = Lotta staying up till 2 AM watching TV. Not good for the old mood.
But I'm wearing some new earrings and they perk me up a bit. Well, not really. But I was trying to segway because they are really nice earrings and I wanted to post a link to the seller's shop. She was incredibly nice, which is always the bonus of buying on Etsy, and her earrings are totally gorgeous and perfect for fall. She's got them in black and white too, I think those are next on my wish list.
