(recurring theme much?)
On Thursday I had the time to do it but decided that no, it was a Friday-esque post and so it would have to wait until Friday.
(history repeats itself, endlessly)
I came upstairs last night to plunk my butt down right here, in this very chair and do my Pre-Planned Perfect Friday Post but...
(got distracted by the evil internet and finally...)
Remembered there were a few things I wanted to do pre-post, so instead I:
a) bought books. A few for my niece Princess Pretty Face, whose birthday is in October.
(okay, okay and a couple for myself -- I pre-ordered the new Flavia de Luce book, due out in November!)
b) bought Mr. Wonderful a subscription to a British Scooter magazine: Scootering. It was not cheap. But it is a birthday present and in all reality, if you do the math (which I suck at) it is cheaper to buy the subscription than it is to drive to a book store and buy them where they're $10-12.00/ea. *There aren't any local book stores here, and they wouldn't carry British Scooter Magazines if there were, and Borders, where we used to shop, yaaay - local! - very sadly has gone out of business. To top it all off we despise Barnes & Noble so this seemed the most reasonable solution.
c) made my own lemon-oil furniture polish* and dusted the bejeezus out of this room. I am happy to report that every wood surface in here isn't dull and tinged a sickly shade of grey any more.
*I got the recipe from one of my favorite books of all time:
d) concluded my Stink Experiment. Which I will, Girl Scouts Honor, post about tomorrow.
Because right now...
I have a concert to get ready for! Yippie!
Mr. Wonderful and I going to a Rock/Heavy Metal concert tonight.
Sadly, I wasn't able to locate any black jeans for him.
\m/ Rock on \m/
