Tea, Writing, and Farmers Markets

I really should remember that I have an LJ some days.

It's been a kind fun week, so maybe it deserves a place somewhere other than my slipping memories.

Last weekend was an anime con, which is always fun, and I spent Monday night and Tuesday night sleeping in, so there's not much I can say about that. My week seemed to start on Wednesday.

After work, I went directly to one of the many farmers markets around the city. I shopped around for a short bit, then bought some strawberries, zuchinni, garlic scapes, lemon balm, chives, and radishes. It was a decent hual and I soup for dinner for the first time in months, and it was awesome. Edamame, carrot, radish, chives, ginger, and soy sauce in chicken broth, but it made me remember that one summer [livejournal.com profile] trombonesonmars  and I shared an apartment. And that evening I broke out my typewriter and tea~!

Thursday was more cooking and writing and tea, followed by Supernatural (er, yes, the thing I might be writing right now could be SPN fic).

Then Friday after work, I went to another farmers market and spent way more than one should be able to at a farmers market. To be fair, there was far more than produce there and I bought a few snacks, bread, jewelry, a skirt, herb plants, and a CSA share. Then, more tea, writing, and Supernatural.

On Saturday, I hauled myself out of bed around 9:30, and made it down to (you've probably guessed by now) another farmers market. This one was the big one and more of combination with a flea market too. I bought two types of tea, more plants, and a pound of sugar snap peas. It was off to fabric store after that and me failing to find something that match my furniture, no big surprise. Then, a little bit of apartment gardening, which consists of everything I bought just getting repotted in a bigger pot. I made bibimbap, around three and then talked with [livejournal.com profile] drkotobuki  and  [livejournal.com profile] trombonesonmars. I puttered around for a little longer, watched Supernatural (I'm marathoning season 4, aka Apocalypse Now, aka Dean has issues, aka  sqeee Cas!) tried to read a paranomal romance – which ended up agaisnt the wall, and then read fic for while before deciding to make my tea and write some more. Around 11 pm, I noticed I had no milk, and ran out the grocery to correct this so I could have my chocolate milk and ameretto.

Today? I've gone two nurseries, bought two plants, payed bills, and watched three episodes of Supernatural and started in on the pile of laundry which had been threatening to engulf my bathroom. It's been kinda disgustingly productive, but really nice.
