It's not quite Sunday, but it's almost there, so I thought I'd title the post that :p I spent most of Saturday just getting myself back together which made for a very good day. I have to do this sometimes. Especially when I'm going through a lot of stress. Just take a "me day" and do all of the things that I really like to do. I had a client at 2 today and I went to see my dad at the hospital, but after that I just did stuff to make me happy.
First up was gardening. Lots and lots of gardening. With my new gloves!!! I found these amazing new gloves thanks to Jeane :) They're made by a company called Roc. She said she wears them all the time now because you can barely tell you're wearing them and that's the truth! I really do love them. I went to a local nursery today and picked up a few things and while I was there I ran into a friend who's working there now that I haven't seen in awhile :) Made for good times!
Jeane didn't know that I had any cacti, so I thought I'd post this picture for her!! I made a little succulent garden awhile back and I'm surprised with how much everything has grown!! The jade especially has really taken off. I actually cut a piece off to see if I can start a new plant. I need to do something with it because the symmetry is off for the planting as a whole.
One Girl Cookies cookbook!! These things were WORK! Took me about 2.5 hours to do the whole recipe from start to finish. They are winter spice cookies with orange cream filling. I changed the recipe up a little bit. I added some orange zest to the cookie dough as well as a bit of vanilla. I also cut a little bit of ginger out and increased the cinnamon. OMG they were just so good.
After about a month with this cookbook and after trying several recipes, I can officially say that it's one of my favorite cookbooks EVER. And I really want to give a copy away to someone!! Actually I want to give a copy away to everyone but I can't afford that :p So only one person gets a copy :p Just let me know in the comments if you want to be entered!! I'll pick a winner next weekend.
Hope everyone's having a great weekend!!
