My week has mostly been the boring kind. Which is the kind I like best, in some ways.
I bought Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Illustrated Edition on Monday and have burned through it. Brian has hardly seen me, as I’ve been reveling over diagrams of dragon eggs and portraits of Harry and Hagrid in a rowboat, seagulls wheeling overhead. It’s prettier than you ever could imagine it would be, even if you’ve already seen the pictures. My only criticism is that it is a bit too huge to hold and read, though it’s good for spreading out on the pillow next to you. (Brian? No, he doesn’t need a place to sleep).
Previews of Chamber of Secrets are available, and I already can’t wait for the next installment.
I made strawberry jam from strawberries we bought at the farm store down the street on Sunday, which I know Brian has been DYING to get into. We still have ½ a jar of Apple/Lemon left first, though. It was so good that I licked the pot clean (shhh… don’t tell anyone). I also had about ¼ of a jar’s worth of leftovers that didn’t fit nicely into the 6 full jars I made, which I promptly ate as well.
The tomatoes have tripled in size, overnight, and are starting to flower.
The kitten has been into her usual shenanigans. I let her ‘help’ me clean up this weekend (by which I mean I crumpled a bunch of the junk mail into balls she could chase around the house so she would stop bothering me to pet her). I put them in the recycling at the end of the day. Don’t worry, she upended it all and pulled them out again (plus more), and strewed it all over the house. It might have been my own fault for giving that stuff to her to play with in the first place… I’ll tell you though, the lesson is not learned. She’s too adorable, and at least the mess is clean paper. She was waiting in the window for me to come home last night, too (and then promptly showed me that she didn’t care about me at all when I walked in the door).
My mom started a puzzle of Yellowstone at her house, which I find impossible to step away from. Must get one more piece in (*eye twitch*). I have most of the lodges together, and was starting on the bears taking pictures of humans when we realized how late it was.
Hats off to lazy weeks. I don’t get many of them.
