I think I have stooped down to a whole new level of OCD. When cleaning out the craft shelf in my room, I suddenly felt compelled to the gargantuan task of Bead Drawer Organization.
I really don’t know why I did this.
I’m having a wonderful time reading the sequel to one of my favorite books, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. Similarly long-winded, it is titled The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There. It’s delightfully fantastic, funny, and creative—the most fun I’ve had reading a book in quite a while.
Speaking of which, the book won my heart all over again when it gave a nod to one of my long-defended ideas: reading coffee grounds. If my mom is reading this, I hope she takes notice of the fact that other people DO read coffee grounds (even if those people happen to be in Fairyland).
Oh, and another book-related take: my friends and I have begun running a book club ourselves since Anna has left, and we had our first meeting yesterday to pick a book and discuss how things would be run. It’s going to be a lot of work and a lot of fun. The book we decided on for our first go is Alice in Wonderland. I guess I have a bit of a whimsy thing going on in my reading this week :D
If you were aghast at my obsessiveness reading my first take, just know that I’m nothing compared to this guy. I’m beginning On the Parts of Animals this week for my primary science text requirement, and he’s nothing if not thorough.
Check out this cool marbling DIY idea I found! And unlike most things I see on the internet, I actually have the things to do this in the house.
I am trying something new this week in the realm of health food cooking—making my own sprouted flour. I haven’t finished with the sprouting bit quite yet, but when I am I’ll be trying my hand at these cookies. I hope it goes well!
