I think it's about time for another "catch-up" post, isn't it? Let's get to it.
Six years ago yesterday, I got engaged. It seems like it was so long ago. We celebrated by staying at home and watching old SNL clips and 30 Rock episodes while I made a nice dinner that took way longer than expected. Starting the whole process to make gnocchi (for the first time ever) at 6:30pm was perhaps not the best plan, but some cheese and crackers helped soften the blow of dinner served at 8pm. Also, there was ice cream for dessert.
I started a new job a week ago. I'm not usually one to choose a big life change (I left my last 2 jobs due to lay offs) but it was an opportunity I couldn't say no to. So far, I like it.
I opened up a shop over on Society6. I took a couple of favorite photos and sized them for phone cases, pillows, prints, etc. I'd like to add some non-photography artwork items at some point, but that might take a while.
I have not forgotten that I promised a post on brewing kombucha. I'm still doing it, and it's been working out pretty well so I have LOTS of notes and links for you. I am going to compile it all. SOON.
Things I am enjoying on the internets:
- I'm finding Holly's Grocery Haul posts kind of fascinating. Partially for the cost aspect, but I also like seeing what other people buy at the store.
- This post over on Not Martha is great for so many reasons, but the reason I'm linking to it is the plastic caps for canning jars. I had ordered some the day before I read this post and now that they're here, I want to order MORE. They make using canning jars for short term storage so much easier.
- The Wednesday chef posted a recipe for what I think might be my dream brownies. I want...no, NEED to make a gluten-free version.
I'm sure I had more to tell you, but that's all my brain can come up with at the moment. Let's do this again soon?
