Had an epic day yesterday. Dropped Tyler off at work, and even though I DID NOT want to get up, I'm glad I did. From there I did errands, got breakfast, bought awesome new cologne for Ty (name to come soon, it is that awesome, and small shop). And then met my cousin back at my house, we ran upstairs to get ready, and then headed to the BEACH! Yep, remember this, 85 and gorgeous on March 22! We went up to Nahant, all the way to the point. The only reason why I know about this secret little spot is because there is a science center there. The beach is pretty secluded feeling, and they actually have sand this year! Usually just a pile of rocks. You've heard of Sanibel Island's shell stoop? Well, watch out for me here in Nahant! They have rocks I have never seen anywhere else. Deep purples, variegated greens, quartz yellows, speckled egg looking stones. Beautiful. Amazing view too. Katie was on a time limit, which was good, we didn't get too burned, collected rocks, layed in the sun on rock blankets (wink wink) and watched the ocean. I would have loved to spite my Mom's "you're not going SWIMMING, are you?", but alas, she was right. the water was downright fricken' freezing. And I've been in some damn cold water. So nice to still have sand in my shoes!

So after driving Katie back to car at Claremon15, I apologized and said Iwas not getting out of the car, because otherwise my productivity was going to plummet. Saw our neighbor, and off again out shopping. Spent a whopping $133 at Christmas Tree Shops. Yep, I go all the time. But, we now have solar lights, plant stand for our little lemon tree, ugh-ly area rugs that will be returned, gummy vitamins (the best!), a nice big glass for new terrarium (pics to come), snacks!, honey for our greek yogurt, ... you get the idea. Don't you just love a bargain? I totally do!

Man, I'm rolling in the sun (and feeling very dehydrated at this point, whereas I almost ditched my cart at CTS and bolted back to the car for home). But onward to Home Depot. Bought topsoil, poitting soil, grass seed, and quick drying cement tub. Because I love cement. And I'm going to make stuff! Thanks,, for your tutorial.

Ok, so on my way home, stopped by Tyler's favorite, Singa Bella, for tasty mediterranean food. I always forget that they have hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh, and all that good stuff on the menu. So I took one home.

Home and brought food upstairs, downed some water, ate a little salad, and lounged while Tyler picked at the baratone uke. For like, a minute! Then downstairs, dug up strawberries (anyone want some?), to make room for other things in the garden. Because it never really froze, they just kept growing. Divided some rhubarb, hopefully it will take. And brought up all the crap from CTS. Then Tyler passed out on the couch while I did two more succulent arrangements.

Also some internet research. I am desperately trying to find cubed or round clear glass bud vases with teenie holes to yes, replicate something I saw for cheaper. I really like the Seed to Stem containers, and I've seen other folks use the same. I am not as fond of the designs. Dont worry, my own creativity, aesthetic, and design will be imprinted. And by the way, everyone is doing succulents right now. What's with that? I hate trends. I just like good damn design.

Yeah, I was beat.
