Okay, I know I'm already about 4 posts behind in my new two-posts-a-week commitment, but people, it's December! Enough said.
I do at least have enough random fodder for 4 posts, which I will now roll into one condensed post.
I kicked off last week by going to the big city all by myself. First, I got my hair done:
Those are also new glasses ($15 from Zenni Optical. I'll never spend $400 at the optometrist's office again!).
Then, I headed to Value Village for my bi-monthly rummage through other people's old junk. Even though I'm not really a brooch-wearer, I was stopped dead in my tracks in the jewellery section by this:
My grandmother had something very similar on her cardigan when I was a kid. I expected to turn it over and find that it had been reproduced in a sweatshop in Taiwan, but was very surprised to see "Made in England" printed on the back. Brooch-wearer or not, at $4 I wasn't going to wrestle with my conscience over this one. It came home with me.
Later in the week, RB celebrated his 6th birthday! I wanted to try sticking to his diet this year, but gluten-free cake can be so rubbery, so I had the bright idea of icing rice crispy squares instead:
I was happy with the way they looked. The way they tasted, on the other hand, caused the Captain to coin a new term: "Diabe-tastic". The sugar headache the next morning was dreadful, as was RB's behaviour for the next 24 hours. Next year, I think it might be safer to just let the poor kid have a little wheat!
Though, as you can see, he really wasn't complaining...
Lots of holiday babble to come. Have a great Sunday, everyone!
