I figured I might as well post about SOMETHING since I haven't been reading much lately. Though I have to say I've finally found a few things that seem to be holding my attention. I just have entirely TOO many books right now that I'm in the middle of. I hate it so much when I let that happen. I end up never finishing any of them. But I'm focusing on three for now! Of course there's The Stand by Stephen King that I'm reading for Trish's Standalong. That's what's going on on the Nook right now. Then I finally found a print book to grab me..that one is Blood Wounds by Susan Beth Pfeffer..love her! And this one is really good. And then Heather convinced me to listen to the audio of Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened and OMG it's hilarious!!!
Aside from reading, I'm making my apartment a home right now. Matt is coming in this week!!! For good!!! I'm so freaking excited about this that I can barely contain myself. There won't be any goodbyes this time. He's staying for good! I still don't think that's really sunk in for either one of us. I think we're still both in the "this is just another visit" mode. But it's starting to hit us now I think and wow it's an amazing feeling.
My mom's coming up tomorrow to spend the day with me and go shopping and go eat and go visit the local nursery. Yes guys, I have a nursery literally WALKING distance from my apartment!! This is SO dangerous!! But wonderful. I'm going to go pick up some herbs tomorrow. I have some vegetables planted in containers outside. I'll try to get some pictures this weekend. But no herbs...I took some herbs from my mom's house and dried them and put them in these wonderful little jars that have shaker tops. Love them!
I also made my own tea!!! Yes!! It's so good guys!! I love the idea of growing things and taking it directly from the ground and turning it into something you can cook with or drink. Yes, I know this is what we've done for centuries, but it just never becomes less amazing. The tea I made is a mixture of lavender buds, various mints and lemon balm that I dried and then mixed together! I made so much of it! I put some in this little jar and it just looks so pretty :)
