The last month or so has been busy, always something to do. I hate being busy, but I like all of the things I’m doing (aside from stupid stuff like mowing the lawn and fixing house stuff).
3 Things From The Week
Something I Learned: The colorful outfits that jockeys wear are called “silks”. And they’re different for every race, chosen by the horse’s owner (I thought they were owned by the jockey himself). Also, the word “character” came from the name for a tool that was used to make stamps. Stamping—>impression—>character
Something I’m Into: I’ve been on an Eggo Waffle kick. I wonder if Eggo’s sales have gone up since Stranger Things came out. I’m pretty sure my craving has nothing to do with the show, but who knows…
Something I Appreciate: I just got a new blanket for my bed, and it’s perfect. It’s soft and thick and cute. I appreciate having a safe, warm bed. So many people don’t.
My poor, battered tootsies from aerial.

Don’t know what it is. Anyone know?It’s that tall, bright vine growing on my lilac bush. It has yellow flowers. Sometimes plants creep me out because they just take over, like in one of those cult horror movies. “Run for your lives!! It’s…THE VINE!!!!”Oh, Autumn. (Shoes: Refresh, exact)
