I always end up admiring the blooms along the way during my walks to the library. These gorgeous blooming cherry blossom-esque trees are everywhere! But I have no idea what they are. Do you know? It got really cold all of a sudden over the weekend, so I'm back to wearing heavier sweaters and cardigans. I can't believe I'm bundling up again after the sweltering 80+ degree weather we've been having!
You may also know how much of a tea whore I am. I usually am OK with Twinings Lady Grey in bag form, but lately, I've been frequenting my local tea shop for some loose leaf teas and chocolates. Probably more for the chocolates, though.shop now! This past week has been a week for hand stitching, and I finally had time to work in some new designs, like unicorns, doughnut pins, and some floral headbands. Check them out :)
In my previous post, I talked a little bit about this book. I finally finished it yesterday, and one of my favorite stories is about the dangerous and soul-crushing tailgating experience of supporting Team Krill in the tournament involving the eating habits of whales. The other story that remains vivid in my mind is about Japanese girls metamorphosing into silk worms, doomed to spend the rest of their lives spinning, spinning, spinning. All of Russell's stories are weird, mesmerizing, and just a treat to read.
