Earl Grey Morning

And my fingers raddle dry like a crack fiend as I pull open the paper. And they are freezing, and blue as i rapidly move them to get at the little white pouch and I’m fumbling out of haste and a pain in my throat. I push through some work related incidentals with little strings holding my fragile nerves together, bobbing from the top of the cup, i huddle over the water cooler as the hot steam rolls over my cold and cracked knuckles gripping the mug. Patience now while I teeter brim full back into the office to a corner to warm myself while I wait. Wait, drumming fingers, rubbing the cup warming up the meaty parts of my palms, and wait…wait. Now. I pop the lid off and let the steam hit my cold face and bury my thoughts in the aromatic heat drift. Now. I lift it to my lips and the edge of the cup signals perfect temperatures. I lean back with a breath in and take a sip of my tea letting the warm liquid coat my mouth and throat like a hug. For a second the pain in my throat subsides while it gets rocked gently with earl grey herbs. I get three long sensual sips in with my eyes closed before I’m interrupted by incidentals with needs. People pressing at me and I know that was my moment for the day. Thank you earl grey tea for 29 seconds of relief see you tomorrow.

Organizing a closet and life in general

It’s been a long uninsperational week filled with work and life. Last weekend the entire weekend was consumed by closet organization. We have to make room for Nicks stuff in my closets so that means a compromise on space. After all was said and done I ended up with leftover space even with his stuff added. Organization is both wonderful and painful for me. I could have never come up with the logistics of the plan but luckily Nick’s good at that mess. We hung double rows in the closet for clothes, gave a lot of old stuff to Goodwill and put all shelves in the second closet. Eliminated two dressers and replaced them with storage containers. Which I fought Nick on because I couldn’t stand the idea of loosing my drawers but it actually is better. Yes I’m admitting it. Everything has a spot and its very easy to get to and I like it. Then a week full if work and its left little time for writing I have felt drained and tired and uninspired but that’s how it is sometimes. Today I plan on enjoying life a little and capturing some sunshine to happy up my bones.

Organization station!
Here I used broom and mop hooks from target to hang up my necklaces and tank tops and smaller slips. It’s working our beautifully and this is my favorite part of the whole organized closet project. I kept the little drawers for panties, bras and a few stocking and socks. My everyday socks are in a container without the lid for easy daily access. My jewelry box is in front and much more organized without all my big long necklaces shoved in it, so now I can open and close it and find stuff fast.
