Wake the Dead

…blog, that is.  It’s been quite a while since my last post—45 days, to be precise.  Since then, I’ve picked up counted cross-stitching, sewn a dress, traveled to Colorado for a cousin’s wedding, gone on an extended family reunion trip, descended into poverty, and purchased two new books.  I’ve also done quite a bit of art journaling, which I’ve come to rely on for stress relief, and have searched for a job for the coming school year to help pay for tuition and books.  I’ll update later with some pictures from my journal.


I Been Schooled!

Or, at least, I will be schooled. 

Classes start on Monday, and I’m actually happy to be back.  I love hanging out with my family, but it’s difficult to get along with everyone else, especially since we’re trapped in the house with the cold weather.  It’s nice to have my space again.  And, while spending most of the weekend with the manfriend, I brought some plants ‘home’ to liven things up:  Darcy and Poppy, the scindapsus philodendron and red moon cactus.

I made peanut butter bread, too.  Darned tasty stuff, especially with honey or even more peanut butter.  Yay for the small things!
