My dad and I had to hit Ikea to replace my kitchen cart that came broken, which turned into a few errands ending at Cracker Barrel. All the Christmas goodies!!
LOOK HOW CUTE. Maybe less the Cracker Barrel, but whatever. I have a good sized collection of Dept 56 houses and buildings and my dream is to have a place where I can create the whole village.
This made me think of you, Jamie! It’s super adorbs.
Love this! It plays all the originals of the songs. I have this lovely 40s style OTR with records I got last year, same idea, and this is a very cute update.
I like plaid. It’s surely no wonder I am obsessed with Outlander, yes?
Last Tuesday, when I was feeling crappy, I took a lunch walk over to a tiny antique store. Check out this amazing Victorian photo album!
It was stuffed with photos just like these. Apparently its owner passed away and her family sold it to the store.
On Friday, I met my family at the hospital to help them get my brother ready for some dental work. (He has to be under anesthesia.) It was a long morning, though he did absolutely brilliantly and we were so proud. After, I dropped a dress off at the library for my friend to wear to a wedding and found our town’s Very First Food Truck outside. And my friends, it is a waffle truck. And it has the best waffles I’ve ever had.
I went for it, friends. There’s nutella, bananas, almonds and whipped cream. I never eat whipped cream, but I couldn’t stop. I actually ate the whole waffle in one sitting, which is so unheard of. I asked them to go light on the nutella, because, um, I’m allergic to chocolate, and it was just delightful. Next time, plain waffle, syrup on the side. It’s perfect on its own.
And project 364:
21/The Sims 4! I’ve been holding off on buying this, but I finally got it and I’m glad I did. It’s not perfect, too many things got cut and it’s curtailed what I can do it my normal playing style, but there’s great potential for growth.
22/Christmas music box from Cracker Barrel, ha.
23/New brooch from the antique store!
24/The leaves are changing!! It started slowly, but a ton of trees turned this weekend while I hibernated. And they’re bright, unlike the past several muted years. YAY.
25/I’ve seen construction guys around this house for awhile, and they are finished. Is it a solar powered roof? It’s unusual.
26/Sunrise from the hospital.
27/The final book in Sarah Rees Brennan’s Unbroken trilogy!!!!!! This was a SRB weekend – I read her free novel online, read her short story follow up in a new anthology and finished this book. It’s hard to explain how thoroughly her writing delights me. Her banter and emotional beats are pretty much everything I look for in my favorite writing, whether it be book, TV, movie, etc. That they can make me laugh while freaking me out is a testament to her skill. A+, do recommend. (Also, if you are also fans of Outlander, she tweets hilarious little interpretations of the episodes. Samples:
