We recently celebrated my birthday and I just had to show you a piece of the birthday cake my hubby made for me:
My husband knows how much I like chocolate. 🙂 So he made homemade hot fudge cake with plenty of hot fudge sauce as you can see. Oh my. It was absolutely delicious!
This past Saturday, my hubby, youngest daughter, and I went to the local bookstore and I bought my first paperblanks journal. I almost didn’t buy it though. They are a tad bit on the expensive side as far as journals go. After picking out the journal, I looked at my hubby and said “My frugal side is kicking in.” Then I proceeded to show him some very basic plain notebooks that were much cheaper. My hubby wouldn’t let that fly. He insisted I get the one I really wanted. And so I splurged and bought the paperblanks journal. Isn’t it beautiful?
The pens with it are ones I just bought Wednesday. I decided to go with the Inkjoy pens and as you can see, I chose a pack with 8 different colors. 🙂
While we were at the bookstore, I also bought some books. Imagine that! 🙂 One of the books I bought was the third book in The Giver series. I can’t wait to start reading it! I am a bit bummed that the book is a different size and a totally different look than the other three books in the series. Is it weird that I like books in a series to all be the same size so that they sit pretty on the bookshelf? LOL Nonetheless, I still bought the book and can’t wait to read it.
I’m still pluggin’ along with Paradise Lost. It’s slow going right now. But I am making good progress on finishing up the books I’m reading of The Once and Future King. I have finished Book 1 and am ready to begin Book 2. Yay!
Oh, and this week I did a post about the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Somehow it initially posted with the wrong date and so I had to go back in and change that to the correct date, which means it posted again but with the right date. Unfortunately, the emails went out to blog subscribers before I could get the post date changed and so the link probably didn’t work since it deleted the original one that posted with the wrong date. My apologies for the confusion. You can read the post HERE.
How was your week?
