I've been sitting here trying to think up some kind of unifying theme for my random bits so I could title the post something other than Random Thursday, but I'm coming up blank. But that kind of goes against the grain of "random", doesn't it? So here you go...
Last week during my giveaway, I asked what y'all ordered when you went to a coffee shop. Several people mentioned chai or chai lattes (is there a difference? I'm clueless...) so today I picked these up. I just brewed one after getting the kids down for a nap, hoping for a fun little hot drink break before I attempt to sew. Can I just say that my cup now smells like this weird kind of fake-cinnamon-goo air freshener that my grandma used to have back in the '80s? I'm not even sure I can get past that smell to take a drink. I'm sincerely hoping every other type of chai doesn't smell like this or I'm going to seriously question your taste.
Look how good my herbs are doing! Ok, the lavender is a little crispy, but that oregano in the bottom pot looks like it could conquer the world. And I even remembered to use some of the rosemary last night when I was making supper. I don't think I have ever kept plants in containers alive this long. The mint that is in that wash bin has pretty much choked out the petunias though.
In other news...
Anyone know what that blob is on my ceiling? Apparently a few nights ago my older boys figured out that they could get cotton balls wet and soapy in the shower and throw them against walls and they would stick. Only this one made it to the ceiling and they couldn't get it down to throw away the evidence. I had no idea cotton balls were capable of this. And yes, it is still there.
Now I'll leave you with a cute pictures of Max who will surely never do anything like that.
