$0 : the mirage

This is a no-photo post to let you know about all of the good things coming.

I was driving around over the long weekend and discovered, of all things, a Goodwill store I did not know existed. Hooray for pop-up suburbs. They yield unique fruits, like Goodwill stores.

Later in the weekend, Steve and I returned to said Goodwill and spent $28-ish on heavenly things, including a brand-new copy of Jeffrey Eugenides' Middlesex. This particular store was outrageous in its asking price for furniture, but as far as knick-knacks & gadgets, it was so reasonable I couldn't believe our good fortune. Plus, the cashier gave us extra "it's the holidays, and I like you guys" discounts. Hooray for good cheer.

I have been painting a $25 bookshelf in my spare time - I need a place for all of my books and "goop."

Also, I have been crafty. I have been making gift tags for the holidays. I might post them here, so I remember what I've been so busy doing!

More to come, darlings. More to come.

I bought Middlesex on audio and tryed to listen while at the gym. I got about 2 discs in and became incredibly board. I really wanted to read it though.

You make think that I have never finished a book. I finish books all the time, really.

You will have to tell me what you think.
