It feels like forev since I posted last, but it was just Wednesday. Things have been hectic in the life of Jessica, but tonight I'm free as a bird. Well, as a bird that lives in a large cage--like the ones at zoos. I'm a Lorikeet. I have some stuff to accomplish, but nothing too time-consuming.
At this time yesterday I was wearing shorts and had all my windows open. Now I'm in fleece polar bear* pants and am contemplating turning on the heater. Oh Oregon...just decide! (And it better be the right decision.)
I have a yummy lasagna recipe to post about, but instead of two recipe posts in a row (boring!) I'll hold off and show you some of the stuff I've bought recently. Get very excited!!!!
Awhile back I got a free sample of the SJP Lovely Collection. Normally I avoid celebrity perfumes (it's too hard to explain why, but maybe I can sum it up with two words: Electric Youth), but many of my standards change when the word "free" is involved. Anyway, I wasn't impressed with Endless and Twilight, but I loved Dawn. It has a clean, tea-ish scent. I decided it was going to be my reward for accomplishing a personal goal. It's just too bad the bottle isn't more interesting.
More extravagance. I had company this weekend and wanted some nice flowers on the table. After mulling over various more temporary options, I decided to go for the orchids. They last so much longer** than cut flowers and they are a great photo subject, so I think I will consider them an educational investment and mark my tax forms accordingly.
This is thrilling, I'm sure. :) It really is, though. At 5'1, I have a hard time reaching most standard chains on ceiling lights/fans, plus my ceilings are taller than average. Now that it's becoming ceiling fan season, I need to not have to get my stepstool every time the temps change (see paragraph two).
These last three are seedlings I purchased for my new planter that a friend sent. You'll definitely be seeing these again as I track the growth. I chose these petunias because the hummingbird at the plant store seemed excited about them.
And I chose these because I have a thing for yellow flowers.
And I chose these because I didn't really know what else to get. :|
Here is my May wish: that someone would take my laptop and fill it with RAM. Work in Photoshop (or any Adobe program) is becoming a major test of my patience, and I am failing.
*They aren't made of polar bear fur nor did they used to belong to a polar bear (I don't think), they just have pictures of polar bears on them.
**Though with me as their owner, their life might be cut short.
