Juneuary is here. Do you know about Juneuary? Yes yes? No? See, it's this little weather phenomenon wherein the temps are somewhere in the FIFTY-FIVE DEGREE range and it rains a lot. And it's dreary. Oh so dreary. Just a few weeks before summer! Doesn't that just float your boat? Andrew keeps telling me how happy our plants and lawn are. I keep reminding him that, as far as I've always read in those book thingys, plants and veggies do quite well when it's a teensy bit sunny. Just a wild theory I've heard. Sounds crazy.
Cheery COOL STUFF is in order:
Cute DIY wrapping ideas.
Green & Black's Organic Ultimate Chocolate Recipes cookbook. (it will be mine...)
My friend Jenny is finishing up decorating her daughter's room. Isn't the room (and her kiddo!) lovely?
Cool Book of the Week: I've been steadfastly ignoring the existence of 'Where the Sidewalk Ends' by Shel Silverstein for a good portion of my life. My thinking when I was younger went along the lines of, Poetry, ugh. Like, OK. I'm sure it's good and all but meh, I can't be bothered to check it out.
Until Andrew took out his copy and gave it to Julia! And she started reading it aloud to me! (Poetry really needs to be read OUT LOUD, I've discovered.) And she loooves it! There's a poem about a little monster who lives inside your nostril and he will bite your finger if you stick it up your nose. SO FUNNY.
Have a lovely weekend! (preferably a warm and not rainy one)
