I’m still desperately anxious/excited for England/Scotland.
April cannot get here fast enough.
It’s taking foreeeever, and we still have a little over a month to go.
Getting things prepared for the trip is helping to mollify the anticipation. I’ve been making lots of lists–lists of places to go/eat, lists of things to pack, lists of things to take on the plane. And since we’re going to be in the air for a long time (around 12 hours), I ordered these beauts to help pass the time (they were on one of my lists).
Definitely a case of form over function, and I’ll probably only get to use them for .25 hours because I’ll have a toddler to entertain on the flight, but that’s okay. They’re white & rose gold, just looking at them makes me happy.
Also, I finished Persuasion. I liked it better than Pride & Prejudice,
but I’m still not a Jane Austen fan.
Now I’m reading Lolita, and let me just say I wasn’t at all prepared for the subject matter. It’s a bit disturbing to say the least, but it’s a classic piece of literature and I should have read it by now since I’m an English scholar and all that jazz.
After I finish, I’m seriously going to need to read something lighthearted. I’m thinking Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, since it’s been on my to-read list forever.
Do you read Jenny’s blog? She’s hilarious, and her memoir will be a welcomed source of comic relief after reading about Humbert Humbert’s f-ed up life that is Lolita.
Anyway, moving on,
I recently used my Kate Spade Saturday pitcher to hold this lovely arrangement
I don’t fancy myself a florist (not by a long shot), but I like putting together arrangements for my house, it’s so relaxing. The only reason I don’t make new arrangements more often is because the drive to buy fresh flowers is annoying. And far.
Well, that’s it for now.
