Today I woke up thinking that it must rain very hard outside, but when I opened my eyes I was greeted by a warm sunshine. All that snow we had last couple of days was melting with speed and the water fell from the roof drumming like rain. I tried to keep a day off of bookbinding, which I did actually manage to do, but I did spend my day reorganizing my papers and folding little envelopes just for fun. What a workaholic.
This is one of the new books listed in the shop yesterday and I feel pretty good about it. I usually feel a bit weird when I'm not using soft or warm colors. I like black but usually not how my black books turn out. This one has silver gray pages and a pair of dark gray bird footprints stenciled onto the front cover. Simple, I know, but simple makes me happy.
Something else that's been making me happy is Feist (her music in general), and the new album of The Kills. That Feist video is ridiculously funny, and it makes a not-so-good dancer feel good too. No need to be too serious.
