It has been a while since I last posted. Apologies for the lapse! Between grading, finishing up my semester, doing some spring cleaning, and winding down from the past month, I haven’t really wanted to jump on here. Plus, at my cousin’s graduation party (Congratulations Jordan!!), I learned that my whole family is reading this blog, and I felt pressured to produce something good! Today, I am finally caving – even though I don’t have anything good – because I have missed writing for the past few days.
This week my favorites are going to be a little slim. I haven’t been doing much other than watching old re-runs, reading, and napping, and that has interfered with my insatiable shopping and internet searching. But here are a few of my favorites from this week:
A place to collect, review, and discover books. You can get recommendations from friends, keep a list of books you want to read, and get recommendations from the computer. This is a fun way to waste some time.
I love spring cleaning. It is literally my favorite thing to do after the spring semester ends. So much so that sometimes I can’t even wait until the semester ends, and I end up wasting a lot of time cleaning out everything instead of studying or writing. Oops. But this year I also have a project in mind. I am re-vamping my desk. Partly because I like order and cleanliness, and partly because I love buying new office supplies, I have been electronically collecting some key items and planning a new, feng shui approach to the layout of my desk.
I have been putting a lot of time and thought into how I am going to change everything up. The color theme is going to be white, black, and teal.
Williams-Sonoma Roasted Strawberry and Ricotta Bruschetta
Confession: I haven’t made this yet. But it looks so good, doesn’t it? I love the Williams-Sonoma website because they have a page that tells you what’s in season and some good recipes to make that highlight those ingredients. I have been buying strawberries like crazy lately because they are Josh’s favorite. This will make a great starter or snack, especially with cold white wine!
