A Little Catch-Up

Thanks, everyone for all the encouraging comments on Monday’s announcement.

That was a fantastic day overall, beginning with West Elm featuring a photo of my old bedroom on their instagram feed (I had submitted it to them a while ago, right after I bought the Ironwork Duvet Cover) and continuing with all your support about my design services. I was unable to tend to each comment as they came in since I’e been picking up more hours at work–yay, this is good news, as anyone in retail knows, “getting more hours” is the name of the game.

The past two days have been super successful for me at Sur La Table and since it’s on my mind, I’d like to remind everyone to get their knives sharpened before the holiday season gets into full swing. If you live near a SLT (here’s their store locator), you can get any knife sharpened for free (and any following knives sharpened for $5 each) from now until the day before Thanksgiving. Sorry if I sound like an advertisement, but I think it’s a great way to keep your tools in good shape. If you don’t live near a SLT, call around and see if any local kitchen/cookware stores are offering sharpening services.

The weather here has been getting awfully chilly at night–I even turned our heat on this morning, it was down to around 60 in the apartment. We have a radiant heat system installed in the ceiling, which is a totally foreign concept to me–if heat rises, why would the heater be in the ceiling? I really couldn’t tell if it was working or if the apartment just gradually got warmer as the day warmed up outside. Time will tell, I suppose!

This post is more like a little catch-up, I suppose. Even though I posted on Monday it feels like ages since I sat down and spent some time blogging. I’ve got a huge list of topics I want to get written, yet time seems to fly by so quickly!

Forgive me for having two rambley posts in a row. I’ll be back on Friday with a few Thanksgiving tips and ideas! Have a great Wednesday, everyone.

How is your week going so far? I’d love to hear about it :)
