I had meant to show off some new designs, but forgot the proper cable for my SLR, so instead, here’s an iPhone look back at the last couple weeks.
What’s new? Tonnes of exciting stuff.
The Trillium, you already know about…
But you might not know about this, and it might not be a thing you can get anywhere other than Barrie. I haven’t looked into it yet.
That, my friends, is a Boston Cream Timbit. It’s not outside the realm of possibility that I willed this into existence with the sheer force of my desire. I’m not going to discount that as an option. But I am going to praise Tim for it either way.
Have you seen these anywhere else? Non-Barrie-ites?
Moving on from what I’m eating to what I’m drinking – wintergreen tea.
I picked all this up at Land and am drying it in the hopes it’s tasty tea (tas-tea?) but I think I might be semi-screwed because I skipped the fermentation step and went straight to the drying. I’ll let you know.
Next up, what am I reading?
Finished The Orenda while camping and it was awesome. Started Minister Without Portfolio the other night and I’m into it so far. Referring to the Field & Stream Guide as I need it (for instance – bannock. It’s what’s for dinner).
And here’s Moody Blue, who I interviewed for an upcoming story (ok his owner did most of the talking).
And then because of all this has exhausted me this fall, we went shopping for a new bed!
That’s right. We’re getting a bed. I’ve never had a new bed as an adult…I can’t remember if I had a new one as a kid or if I used siblings’ beds. Either way, the last decade of sleeping on the worst of the worst has erased all memory of potential past comforts.
Since University I’ve moved from a super hard single dorm bed, to a plain mattress on the floor, to a plain mattress in a loft, to a single saggy mattress on the upper berth of a wire bunk bed, to a Thermarest, to a mattress in a van, to various additional mattresses on floors (I’m talking about the plain old-school ones that are like, three inches in height), to a used IKEA bed.
As such, I can fall asleep on a cement floor with noooooo problems. I’d never really considered my sleeping life uncomfortable until last night, when we Goldilocks’d all these beds at Sears and the Bay.
Have you spent any time on one of these fancy ones with different layers and kinds of cushioning? They’re incredible. Now that we’re getting one, I can barely bear to look at the bed at home anymore. I just can’t wait for the pillow-y softness of “hotel bed” to be a part of my everyday experience!Read more →
