It is so hot crumpet with butter weather. If you wanna make your own too, try this recipe!
I know, I’ve changed it up again. I blame the full solstice moon or whatever the hell is going on. I CAN DO WHAT I WANT MOON, OK?!
At least it’s not (quite) as bad (I don’t think) as Mercury Retrograde, that shit makes me loco for real.
Last week was really rather pleasant on the whole, even though I’d signed up to exercise thirty minutes every day and eat five cups of vegetables every day. Surprisingly, I actually did it! Well I had a cheat exercise day on Saturday because Saturday.
Issue 3 of Lunch Lady, which is awesome (gonna make that cauliflower and fennel soup tonight), and The Artist’s Way. Although I keep getting very distracted by all my cookbooks, which I just moved into their own bookshelf. I keep seeing things I forgot I had or have been waiting to read and now that everything is in my line of sight all day long I am rapidly losing willpower. Will I ever finish The Bourne Identity? WHO KNOWS!
Wholemeal ANZAC biscuits, all of the soup, roasted mushrooms with Diane sauce, all of the goddamn vegetables in all of the land, rocket on everything because hey five cups a day is a lot, and scrambled eggs.
I finished Degrassi Junior High (going to record our podcast episode on it tomorrow YAY!) and am still kicking on with Gilmore Girls. Although I’m reasonably certain (plus I was told) that the whole back catalogue is likely to be on Netflix…. soon.
Excitingly, someone asked Carly and I to do Dawson’s Creek and now of course we have to bump that up in the queue. No complaints from me.
I watched ROOM. I spent a good 45 minutes cringeing, wringing my hands, staring at anything other than the screen, and freaking out. Oh yeah, and crying. The rest of the movie I spent half in awe/half so upset. What an amazing movie.
I don’t know how long this will last, but I feel like I’ve got something in my wardrobe for every need. I don’t think I’ve ever been this satisfied with my clothing setup ever. Like, in my life. Is this what being a responsible adult feels like?
- So it’s technically the first day of winter and here I’ve been so smug as I’ve successfully navigated the last cold two weeks without dying. I ain’t seen nothing yet.
- I spent many, many hours of my life watching all of the Queen’s birthday celebrations, even the one where they sat in a church for two hours. May I say Kate’s Trooping outfit was a 12/10, she absolutely nailed it. I wasn’t mad at the Ascot dress either, though plenty of other people were. Listen, let’s just say the whole week was a sartorial delight with the exception of the Patron’s Lunch getup. Let’s pretend that never happened.
- Having my sister here was a ton of fun. We had a super-nice lunch, some super-nice wine and then I danced way too much and got home too late. I think I’m only just feeling human again now.
- Candles at night
- The heater
- The fact that Mother and Son has been added to Netflix.
