Nailed It

Breakfast and doing my nails and filling out paper work, I do this far too often. It’s almost my daily routine. Now thanks to a tip from a friend I learned how to transfer magazine clippings to my nails.

You’ll need rubbing alcohol, nail polish. clear polish, and a magazine.

Okay, first paint your nails, any colour will do. let them dry. Now cut down pieces from the magazine that will fit on your nail and soak them in the rubbing alcohol. Then you’ll place them on your nail, let it dry. Once it’s dry wet it again with the alcohol and slowly peel off the paper. It should leave then ink behind. now just paint a clear coat over it and you’re done.

And no post is complete unless I’ve shamelessly inserted one of my own paintings. This was a birthday gift for a friend, I know it’s weird but it’s an inside joke so trust me it’s not super weird.

A Dash Or This A Pinch Of That

I know, this blog is crammed full of grapefruits. I like grapefruits. What of it?

Before you judge me for going through seven of these fruits in a week you should be aware of the benefits. The grapefruit is rich in vitamins C, B1 and B2. Grapefruit is also a good source of citric acids, potassium and calcium. It is low in calories. It is excellent as an aid in the digestion of meats. When taken before you go to bed, grapefruit is conducive to a sound sleep. It is also good for reducing fevers from colds and the flu. The rind of the grapefruit contains vitamin P, which is an important vitamin for healthy gums and teeth. This fruit can also help hardening of body tissue, which is a good thing.

So there…

Also, for some reason I keep drawing facial hair on things. Again, I know, it’s weird.

I don’t have any fun facts about mustaches as art.

Sorry.

P.S. We cleaned out our refrigerator this week; a lot of crazy, random, old things.

Avoiding Work

Raise your hand if you have ever procrastinated. I don’t care if you’re in public. Just do it, it makes life more fun.

There are plenty of things I should be doing. These include cleaning, school work, church work, finishing a painting and grocery shopping. Instead I’m playing with my food and blogging.

All week long the weather has been beautiful. I really thought Gainesville would get through an entire week without rain for the first time this semester.

And then I walked outside this morning. I mean it wasn’t like I was walking through 3 foot deep puddles, but still. I just want one week where my hair isn’t affected by humidity.

Palate/Palette

I just started a painting class this semester and I’m pretty jazzed about it.

Fresh foods are usually colourful, like paints, plus I had to buy a new palette so this is what I did with my old one. This is semi reflective of my diet too, ever since I moved out on my own I been eating a lot of fruits, vegetables and sweets. I should probably start eating more meat, or at least start cooking.

School

A school of fish made from more grapefruit and some goldfish.

Ever since I began this school semester I’ve loved Mondays. I am never scheduled to work and I have no classes.

I get to sleep in and catch up on studying or go running. And of course I can add a new blog post.

Goldfish were on sale. One dollar and one flavor of each. What a deal!

Home Sweet & Tart Home

I have to work seven hours today. I’m not looking forward to it. No one eats ice cream after September anyway.

Today feels like one of those days where I stay home and clean all day. I love days like that.

Instead I’ll be an enabler to the overweight and my home will remain in disarray.

Breakfast Time

It rained this morning, which preventing me from going on my daily morning jog so I had a little down time and this is the result.

Since I woke up feeling hungry and lonely I gave my breakfast a face so I could have company.

I’m addicted to grapefruit.  However they are not terribly filling so I added cereal with craisins and a cup of hot tea to the morning mix.
