I’m pretty happy with how much I accomplished today! Groceries, laundry, dishes, made two awesome meals, got some photo editing done, read an entire novel, baked a treat for tomorrow, a bit of tidying (but not as much as I had planned) Phew. All that and a two hour nap earlier today haha.
Tomorrow will be a really nice day, as I’m going to be visiting my favourite photographer! We will mainly be sitting by the pool. I’ve been in a fair bit of pain recently so I’m hoping that some swimming will help a bit. I’m also hoping that his dog Chloe will chase him around the edge of the pool again so I can get some fun shots. Fingers crossed! Now if only he were home from today’s wedding shoot so we could confirm what train I’ll be taking lol! Guess I’ll go get ready for bed, then send him an email telling him to call me in the morning, oh dear.
This morning’s work (not my paid job, but the other one) got cut short thanks to a fantastic colleague so after I eat lunch I’m taking a nap (got up at 5:30!!), then I’ll be doing laundry, photoediting and packing for my mini trip this week to visit the very lovely setfiretotheraain. Oh and of course I will post some photos from yesterday :)
I might also write a short review of the novel that I finished today! It’s been a while since I’ve done any reading for fun. Obviously the logical thing to do is to give myself more writing to do haha.
Posting from my grandfather’s iPad. This is a little weird.
Caribbean Festival (Carnival? Parade? Ahh screw it, Caribana!!) is this weekend… so inevitably, work is going to be a gongshow. I just know that nurses will be calling in sick… picking up caffeine before I get there to get me through the evening!
Tomorrow I’m away to visit my grandparents for the day! Should come home with some new photos :)
See you guys later!
Slept a bit better last night, but im only up now because my brother made a lot of noise getting up for work. Gonna go back to sleep for a bit because I wont be home til from work til very late (evening shift plus public transit, ugh).
FIle this under snippets of my life that don’t matter to anyone else but I’m blogging about anyway lol.
Making more pierogis. They’re so good, even from frozen.
I want to learn how to make them from scratch, either from my favourite photographer’s mum or his babcia.
I think this is going on my August craft list!
Do you remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about SoFino’s shop filled with beautiful felted soaps? Well, I just came across an awesome tutorial over at craftgawker that shows you how to make your own little felted soaps! Get yourself some wool batting, soap and some hot water (easy peasy) and follow these instructions.
If anyone takes a stab at this and wants to share, I’d love to show them off on my blog. Happy Wednesday!
Quarter after 4 in the morning, 2 final exams today and the worst insomnia I’ve had in a while. Grrreat.
I really need to learn how to focus!
My plan for the rest of the night is…
- Print off my study notes for both exams.
- Cook either some pasta or pierogies so that I can pack a lunch and dinner for before/between exams tomorrow.
- Water my tomato and cucumber plants.
- Outline two essay question answers
I’m thinking that maybe I might leave home early tomorrow, so that I can walk around campus and take a few photos before my first exam. Somehow I failed to do that over the course of the last 3 months. Maybe it will keep my nerves down a little bit? I hope so. Hmm.
Might pop by tumblr and check things out again, maybe between 4 + 5, but for now I’m logging out and disconnecting the internet lol.
