I know it’s been a while. I’ve been busy getting old. I’ve been busier not looking old. I’ve become quite physically active. Who knew I’d become a runner?! And I actually like it!
I’ve also honed my fashion and beauty eye. It’s become quite keen and entrenched in Mid-century Modern style. It is they style that has stolen my heart. I do think it to be classic and timeless, yet time preserving at the same time. This goes for architecture as well. I have been admiring this style of building and design for as long as I can remember. Now, I am actually studying it.
Man and I are still in our large country home. We have done quite a lot of forced work to it. Forced meaning, shit keeps breaking. Yay for all new appliances! Currently we are working on main level flooring which has turned into a disaster of its own domestic terror. At the moment, we are living on subflooring until our second batch of new flooring can be chosen, purchased, and installed. Hopefully that will occur in the next two weeks. In the meantime, I’m grateful for no more carpet that smells like piss. I can’t get down with R. Kelly.
I’ve also been savoring the role of World’s Best Auntie. I now have a niece and a nephew to adore and spoil and send back to my sister when they become assholes. Now I love my niece, but this little nephew of mine is EVERYTHING!!!!! I cannot even stand how much I love that little beefcake. More on him later.
During my hiatus, I’ve pondered many things, and rest assured the witty, sardonic, biting Elle is unchanged on those. However, I am not sure what this blog will become. For now, it will continue to be a sounding board, but I am also working over at Modestynotfoundhere.tumblr.com and that might just be where the real magic happens. I actually really like Tumblr, and not just because I am a fan of porn, but because there are some brilliant people there, and a lot of international users as well. I am an enormous fan of British humor.
Now, I am currently working on a post, perhaps a series of them regarding being old. I mean 35. Tidbits include multivitamins, gardening, and back pain!
