Since I teach at a year round school, we don’t technically have a summer break, but we do get off a few weeks throughout the summer. We have off the rest of the week and I’ve taken the last two days to be lazy. I’m meeting up with friends and doing a lot of things that have been on the backburner, so its a needed and much welcomed break.
In the two days I’ve had off, I’ve found time to catch up on reading, play some more Final Fantasy Tactics (almost at the end of Chapter 3!) and do a bit of crafting. I’ve been working on opening an Etsy store and I’m planning on officially opening it sometime this week. My mom, who does amazing crochet, is also doing a store with me. We’re not going in with plans to make a ton of money, but a couple extra bucks is always welcome. Speaking of Etsy store, I finished a tissue box I’ve been working on for the past week. I’m really happy with how it turned out (if you’re interested, it’ll be in my Etsy store 😉
Hulk and Thor are on the other side. I really had fun making this and I based the Avengers off of a lite brite pattern someone created. It took me a little over a week to make and 2 plastic canvas sheets. I might do a pattern sheet and upload it as a PDF for Etsy, but I need to figure out how to do that first (any program recommendations?)
In other news-I made some more progress on my 101 in 1001 days, but I’ll save that for another update. I did make Eggplant Lasanaga for dinner tonight and I was very impressed with how it turned out 🙂
I used the recipe here . I halved it and cut out the meat (Pescatarian). I added some dried basil leaves and oregano for flavoring and they both blended really well! Yummy!
What new dishes have you made this past week?
