Friday Thangs [3-17]7:01 AM
+ Wednesday and Thursday sucked a fat one. My furnace went out and the temperature plummeted in my house to 10C that we had to wear our winter coats inside until the furnace guy came to fix it. He was actually really cool about it and didn't charge as much as was quoted.
+ The winter storm that we were bracing for actually hit west of the city so I was spared the 15cm of ass and snow that mother nature shat upon us. It was still cold as fuck so I stayed on my couch and alternated between reading and crocheting. I'm still trying to figure out a way to do both at the same time.
+ Poncho is done, finally. I just need 8 buttons.
+ Despite the annoying wait times for some books, I have to admit that my library's catalog and borrowing system is on point. They make it so easy to place holds, you can even pause your holds (so you save your place in line when you decide to resume your hold/place), you can cancel your hold and even pay fines online.
Four of these books are for Kayla; I love that she's been giving me lists of books to get for her.
+ Trick for the crispiest potato wedges: aside from soaking wedges in ice water for 30mins, bake them on a cooling rack so the hot air gets underneath and you don't have to flip them over! Just be sure to line the baking sheet with foil to avoid stains on your baking sheet. You're welcome.
+ I've been on a great reading roll but have been too lazy to draft a post about it because I sort of hate the format of how my blog places content beside pictures and I'm too lazy to sit and figure it out to make it all pretty. Instead, here's a list of the books I've read:
The Last Mile 5/5. Suspenseful, twisty plots and bad guys who wanna be good guys. Loved this.
Kill the Father 3/5. I have mixed feelings about this book. There were parts that were amazing but then parts that were not amazing and frankly, quite boring that I skipped some pages because get on with it already.
Silver Stars 4/5. Continuation to the book, Front Lines (which was amazing)....it was a bit slow in the beginning but quickly picked up.
Currently reading: The 5th Wave.
+ With temps brutally cold this past week, I've had to pump up the jam with skin care and did a super hydrating mask on Wednesday night.
+ This movie! I spy/action movies; female kickass spies even more:
After work is back treatment #3 followed by a 90 minute massage (because treat yoself) and tomorrow night is fancy date night with the husband. We drop Kayla off for the night at my sisters while we eat through Toronto.
Have a great weekend!
