The Second Go Round


This past weekend I spent some time setting my hair in sponge curlers. My hair's almost six inches shorter than it was a few weeks ago and that means that it's going to hold a curl better (I think...I hope!)

The first set didn't turn out - it was a wet set and it took a few hours to dry and promptly fell out but by the second day the set worked and I got those beautiful mid 1940's curls I love so much.

In other news, I fed a girafe a cookie. I am not making that up. It's just one of the perks of being an elementary school teacher. Prehensile tongues are pretty incredible!

Here are some things around the internet that are holding my interest and maybe will do the same for you:

- Here's a little thing on waiting for you to think about next time you're waiting
- I'm making this recipe for dinner tonight. I'm getting into food blogs right now, as cooking seems to be a good way for me to de-stress after work. Some of my favorites are here, here, and here.
- I'm hosting a little apron sew a-long for my book club here. You're welcome to join if you would like to! We are on week 1 right now and I'll be doing the second part this weekend some time.
