Rainy Saturday

Everyday Life, Reading

Swung by Earth-1 this morning to take care of some stuff. While I was paying a bill, I headed into the bookstore next store and picked up a copy of a new book, The Known, The Secret, the Forgotten: A Memoir by Joan Wheelis. It’s even an autographed copy. I had this one on my Goodreads for a while, it sounded pretty good so I decided to give it a shot – so that’s my current reading assignment.

It is ridiculously difficult to get around Somerville with all the construction going on . I literally could not get to where I wanted to due to Beacon Street being closed, so I had to go to Porter Square instead (by way of Harvard Sq.) – which is how I ended up at the bookstore.

My New Record!

Everyday Life, Memories

My new album is out! Go check it out on Spotify, ITunes, and record stores everywhere!

In other news, I went ahead and ordered a Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens for my camera to try my hand at some wide angle shots. Total impulse buy, but it was on a killer sale so I popped on it. Might be kinda cool for some scenic shots – we’ll see. I’ll probably need to get a bigger bag at some point – carrying around three lenses is getting to be a bit much to carry!

Hibiscus!

Everyday Life, Gardening

Went out after work to do our walk at a local plant nursery and ended up getting a giant hibiscus (along with some mums and a purple ornamental pepper plant). We’ve been wanted a hibiscus for a while now and the opportunity finally presented itself! Good deal price wise too. We’re going to decide where to plant it tomorrow.

I forgot to mention: It’s a Giant Hibiscus, not just the regular kind – so it’s blooms are large and spectacular looking in a deep reddish purple.

For some reason, Labor Day this year just doesn’t feel like Labor Day to me. I can’t really say why. Maybe because we’re kinda subdued right now. Even did a Target run! I finally did beat all 13 levels in that Landfill game today I mentioned a few weeks ago (Aug. 15th entry)- boy I must have spent hours on that – that was a good distraction for a bit.
