in a lemon world.



Oh, it's Friday again? These days have been consumed with design work: logos, packaging, book covers... my job is fun. Outside of that, I've been lacking any sort of motivation. It honestly feels like somebody is pumping me with sleeping medicine and all I want to do is lay on the couch and rest. So that's happening and I'm trying not to feel guilty about it.

One of the weekend tasks is to pick some of the citrus off our trees. Do any of our family/friends/neighbors want some lemons? Not sure I've ever seen one tree bear so much fruit... let me know and you can take a bag!

  12. I love that description! I feel the same way! I keep thinking- what is wrong with me?? I am on my period though, and sometimes hormones do crazy things.. especially when paired with being busy.. classes and full time work.
