I recently managed to go through a lot of books in one afternoon snuggled in the couch, sipping tea while my kitties meowed all over my general vicinity. My friend M loaned me these hilariously awful Nancy Drew books that I devoured instantly. These were the first chapter/series books I read when I was a kid, and I remember writing up Nancy-inspired mini novels back then.
I've also been consuming a ridiculous amount of tea in my husband's oh so clever octopus cup. Isn't this the coolest cup ever? There are other designs too (t-rex, skull, spider) but this is my fave. My brew of choice is Twining's Lady Grey, which is light with a little hint of citrus. But I've also been sipping on some nettle leaf tea and chamomile. What's your brew?
No reading trip is complete without comics and a good non-fiction. I've been immensely enjoying Brian Wood's Northlanders series because... you already know-- VIKINGS. I picked up the last volume by mistake and read that first, so now I'm playing catch up. I also picked up Shakespeare's Tremor and Orwell's Cough which is about the various diseases famous writers may have had. It's a fascinating read, especially if you're familiar or interested in famous writers' physical ailments/
I actually finished packing yesterday (read: I decided to take whatever fit in my suitcase, and will just buy whatever else I happen to need when I get there) so I plan on taking things easy and cleaning up my craft room today. I'm planning on closing my shop until I get back in a couple weeks, so if you need anything for presents or such, get em now :)
I leave you with a picture of Pandae and Flash chillin by our wee skull collection. I think they were mesmerized by my doughnut phone charm as I took this picture.
