Tuesday morning, not the store.

(via everythingfab)
I love this! That typewriter! When I was younger I would spend hours typing on my grandmother's typewriter. It looked very similar to this and I loved the act of pressing the keys down with such intent and seeing the immediate gratification of your words in print. Finding Forrester captures this adrenaline rush rather well. It's a great movie, I should watch it again.

This is also my every morning lately (minus the typewriter, sadly). I sit down at my desk with a full cup of coffee and blog. It's a strange thing that I never thought I'd get into. I've attempted numerous blogs, but this has, by far, been the most diligent. The physical acts of writing as oppose to typing and holding a newspaper as oppose to scrolling down a screen have always trumped their electronic counterpart in my mind. But here I am, blogging and loving it (weird!?). The digital age has made a small victory on me.

Also, here's a new goal for May-Absolutely no online shopping. It was getting a little out of control, the ease at which I could simply press add to shopping cart and place order needs to be checked. The last two packages I received were not fantastic and I'm now having to return them, which would all have been averted if I simply saw it in person or tried the dress on. So, May, I will hit the stores if I need something.

This is all:

Hahaha I love "Make a snowman, even if there is no snow." That should be interesting! :)

I do the same thing a lot of times too; grab my coffee and sit at my desk and blog. I never thought I would be into blogging and never thought it would last when I made one, but a year later and I still love it!

Great List! So your day isn't ever wasted!! Life is to short! I know what you mean about the type writer, the old ones, how lovely it is to hear the sound of it.. So fun, I used to play as a child, and pretend I was the most important person and I just had to meet my deadline. Oh how everyone would be disappointed, If I didn't meet it. lol.So fun!! Beautiful Blog! :)

Online shopping gets me too. It adds up so fast before you realize how much you've spent!
