Thanks to Hallie for what is basically a writing prompt for me.It’s an unfocused kind of morning, as I’m nursing the baby and typing, which leads to an unfocused non-theme. Here is some stuff I really like. Enjoy.
Tea. The fact that this is really the only thing I can think of to start off and it’s nine-thirty in the morning gives you an iea of how important this is to me. My favorite, specifically, is PG Tips, purchased at World Market for less than my local store charges. I am addicted to caffeine, but I find that tan-your-hide strength black tea works better and .doesn’t make me feel as edgy as coffee does. Nectar of the gods.
The Chronicles of Narnia. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was the first big kid book I ever read. I was five. Philomena turned five in March, so we got her a copy. We finished it two nights ago and it was wonderful. Her reaction was a heavy, contented sigh and “Mommy, I miss Narnia.” Next up, Prince Caspian. Yes, I am one of those people who strongly believe the books should be read in the order of publication. If you want to argue, you may take it up with me in the combox. I will win.
My new shampoo and conditioner. Nature’s Gate makes a beautiful henna shampoo. It lathers up beautifully without anything harsh and really does improve the shine in my hair. It’s also pretty cheap, even at my local organic hippy store. You know, the one where I buy my organic hippies.
Rowan Pure Wool DK. Expensive and hard to find in the US. I took up crochet last year, got distracted, and took it up again this year. Right now I am making a pile of three inch multicolored stars that I’m going to string together into a bunting for the girl’s room. I have four blankets to make in the next year or so, and I have to use up the yarn I have before I buy more. This is the wool I want.
Ralph Vaughn William’s unearthly setting of Psalm 90.
