 I got new glasses. Some people like them, some people don't... like my dad :) he walked in to Target the other day and did this sort of buzzard-like circling around my head and then peered at me with kind of squinty eyes. "So... you got new glasses, huh." "Yep, Dad, what do you think of them?" His reaction: "They uh... well, um they, ehh..." I surmised that he didn't like them and he replied with a firm "yep!" But oh well, they fit better than the old ones and I like them. So did the guy at the Tim Hortons drive-thru... as well as a couple of friends, one of whom asked if I got new glasses. Upon my assent, my other friend promptly said "oh yeah I noticed them a few days ago..." to which I replied (choking back laughter) "I just got them today." Haha at least they tried, right?
 I went for a walk the other day. This weather is the my favorite of the whole year. It's chilly at night - I need several blankets to stay warm. It's brisk in the morning and evening, which is perfect hoodie weather :) But it's mid to high seventies during the day, which means I can still wear short sleeved shirts and flip flops. Life does not get any better than this!
It's a bad picture, I know. But it's the best out of four or five tries. This picture was not meant to be a shout-out to my very dirty car, but it's a very detailed and intricate spider web built on my very dirty car. Yeah, it's kind of gross because this spider is using the space behind my mirror as his home. I'm not a fan of spiders. But this web has been on my mirror and door all day, and driving 60 mph didn't hurt it at all. And the best part is, Mr. Spidercus Arachnid was smart enough to not attach it to my window so I can roll it down without feeling guilty that I ruined his web. I thought it was pretty brilliant.

And on a different note: if you buy a collander to avoid spilling pasta down the sink when draining it, make sure that you don't spill the pasta on the stove when transferring it from the collander back to the pot. It makes the collander rather useless. On a minor rabbit trail from this note: adding one slice of CoJack cheese to a pot of mac'n'cheese makes it taste better. Rather than taste like processed boxed blah, it tastes like cheesy processed boxed blah! Isn't it a great time to be alive? Aren't you glad you've read this post?


  1. "Isn't this a great time to be alive?"

    What will they think of next?

    Yes. Yes, I am glad I read the post. You always make me smile!
