First of all HOLY CRAP so many birthday wishes from so many of you! Last year I had my birthday notification thingy turned off, so I wasn't expecting this enormous flood of well wishes from all of you guys after I turned it on. Thank you all so much, there were so many that I can't reply individually. But I wanted to let you know how happy it made me that so many of you took that little bit of time out of your day to wish me a happy birthday.
I've been away from my computer all weekend, hanging out with my family. My mom took me shopping on Saturday, which was fantastic! I got lots of new spices and spice refills from my very favorite spice shop, and then around the corner to my favorite tea shop. I have been drinking mostly sencha for a couple months, and haven't been able to get down to that tea shop to get more of my favorite teas. I'm all stocked up on silver needle, jasmine pearls, and golden tip assam now. Having a cup of jasmine as I type this, it's been a while. I also got the latest installment of the Blacksad series, SO GOOD. Sunay I went out to eat with all of my immediate family, at one of my favorite restaurants. I had a big cup of sweet gingery Bhakti chai, and a smoked salmon scramble to end all breakfasts. Got to visit with everyone, and had home made pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting at my mom's after our meal. I spent the rest of the day in a bit of a tired stupor, alternately watching Netflix and reading. I'm in the middle of several addicting book series, all I want to do is read lately! XD I even god a Good Reads account to start tracking what I read and getting recommendations from others.
Sorry for my lack of art updates lately, I've been so wrapped up in work, and so far I can't show anything I've been making. I hope once the book I've been working on comes out, I'll be able to post some stuff about it. Thank you guys again for all the fantastic birthday wishes!
