Even when I don’t think I have much to say.

Here’s the thing, I’m a little scattered about this. Is this a photography blog? Is it a project blog? Is it a travel blog? I guess it could be everything; I just gotta get better about posting daily. Or almost daily.

What am I doing now? I’m overhauling my apartment in prep of March’s The Cure with Apartment Therapy. Originally I thought it was an online-group project tackling thing, but it’s a Spring cleaning online support group.

Not nearly as eye-catching as the one above, but wow! That would be a great space saver for my tiny, East Village apartment.

And, now, that I’ve given myself permission to purchase flowers weekly, this may well be necessary.

This would be perfect ... for the last, remaining blooms when all the others have been removed.

What I have included in my renovation budget, is a little bit for the cleaning system from MUJI.

One stick with different attachments, just wish the broom were angled!

I hate to end my daydreaming on a “cleaning” note, but that’s where my head is these days.
