Lately, I've been re-visiting many of my childhood favorites via audiobooks. Now, I usually love the feel and smell of books, but when I'm in the gym, cleaning the house, or cooking, I can't very well hold a book right in front of me now, can I? I am currently listening to Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden-- one of my to-go books when I was little.
I'm sure that the book has influenced my current choice of clothing, what with the wide skirts and the heels, but it's also affected my choice of background for these photos. I actually ventured out into the hot and humid world to take advantage of the beautiful sunlight.
My weekend was a flurry of comic books and video games. Oh, and enchiladas. I love making enchiladas since that means I get to spend more time in the kitchen with my fon fon ru (my husband). Making the dish is time-consuming and tiring, but well-worth the effort. To go with our meal, I also made some delicious pico de gallo using fresh tomatoes and jalapenos from my garden. In the past week, I harvested at least half a dozen ruby red tomatoes and a ton of jalapenos. I'm a natural Mary Lennox, I know.
How was your weekend?
PS. Thanks for all your wonderful comments about my new layout! I'm glad you liked it :)
