“We were together. I forget the rest.”

Loving on a Thursday

I’ve been home from work all week with migraines. Not that you can work ANY job with a migraine, but you definitely can’t teach preschool. So. I have tried to make the most of my time at home (as the headaches seem to dissipate in the early afternoons) by making peanut butter treats for Jakey pup from Rachel’s simple recipe, whipping up some homemade red chile for enchiladas last night (sometimes our New Mexico-ness pops it’s head out and begs to be paid attention to),  and more than anything, bugging the Gent while he tries to work. (But don’t feel too sorry for him; I made him leftover enchiladas topped with a fried egg for lunch).  And naturally, in the midst of all that I’ve been pinning. So, without further ado…

What is it about this photo? Her posture. Her pants. Her gaze. She’s got it figured out, for sure.

Ever on the hunt for a kinda raincoat- not too techy/black- not too warm- perfect Seattle jacket, I found this… could be it!

Also, I need a bag for work. Something that can get a little beaten up, but is also at least a little chic… How about this one, Everlane?

Maybe festooned with this little Clare Vivier pom pom? And hey, that would be economical, because I could also put it on my La Trop, as foreshadowed in this pic from the CV blog… such a deal! ;)

This bunny has captured my heart. It is too sweet for words. It’s in the Steven Alan article in the new Matchbook, and no, I don’t know where’s from. But I sure wish I knew, and that I had some little being to buy it for! Besides myself, of course.

Small, everyday things well-designed. They make me so happy. And also make me want to go back to school for graphic design. That swan print is killing me.

Pumpkin espresso bread. I will be making this. Won’t you?

Some words. This is perfect, no? Right to the point.

Jessica Clare

Preschool teacher, writer, trouble maker.

LIVES: Seattle. By way of Santa Fe, San Francisco, and NYC.
DAYDREAMS:Strong coffee. Gourmet magazine. Stinky cheese. Date night with new strappy heels. Green chile. Going back to India. Unabashed displays of love. Vegetable gardens. Clean sheets. Unruly stacks of books. Breaking Bad marathons. Writing like Joan Didion ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Joseph Stroud. Cookbooks. French 75s. Sequins with jeans. Leaving love notes.
BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
