Skies gray and weeping, ground brown and squishy, ten percent chance of sun. Winter in the northwest. High temperatures in the forties, and high electric bills.
I'm thinking about fabrics in bright colors of orange, yellow, red and purple - the energy spectrum, and what to do with them. Cushion covers, wall hangings, table cloths, enough large swatches of vivid, pulsing action colors that I forget the winter grayness.
My favorite home page these days: the Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, also now a book.
