Portland Saturday market honey guy to the rescue! At 3 dollars, this jar of honey is a lot smaller than it looks. But I'm sure said honey guy's blood, sweat and tears went into it. Actually, ew...I hope not. It tastes pretty good though.
So besides sneezing, what am I doing with my life? Short answer: nothing. No job yet, and no word back from my interview. But that's okay for now, being unemployed in the summertime is Childhood version 2.0. Except nobody tells me when to go to bed, and I can have all the beer I want.
Enter kiddie crafts. Lately, I've been making friendship bracelets among other things (things which I cannot post yet since I'm sending two of them off to Texas as a gift and I don't want to spoil the surprise). I loved making bracelets when I was a kid, and the fun is not lost on me at 24 1/2. Today, patterns for bracelets can be found all over the internet, not just in books, though my favorite still comes out of the original Klutz Friendship Bracelets book (by Laura Torres):
Double Chain Knot. Not too intricate but you can make 5 in an hour
and wear them all at the same time. Like, for instance, while watching
90's sitcoms at 3AM because you don't have a job.
Another thing we've been working on is our patio garden. Not too much has sprouted yet, but when they do, I'll be swimming in cilantro. Which will get made into pesto. And frozen. Tomatoes (I hope they don't get blight), jalapeno peppers, petunias, catnip (for guess who!), lemon balm, rosemary, and cilantro should soon be sprouting on our balcony. Time will tell.
