Life Lately

Life Lately

I can’t believe it’s already the end of August. I think I’ll be saying that every month for the rest of the year. We did end up going to the beach. We just came back from a trip to Ventnor City Beach last week. We stayed at this really cute bed & breakfast called The Carisbrooke Inn. It’s worth a visit. If you’re not a morning person, I recommend you do not stay in rooms 1 or 2.

I’ve made some changes to the blog. That’s a new header. What do you think? I also cleaned up and simplified the main menu. I hope it’s easier to use. Now that’s complete, I’ll resume posting regularly. I will post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, every week.

Our wedding was featured in the August issue of Happenings Magazine.

♦ My latest on Craft Box Girls:

Dorm Room Essentials – I put together a list of 10 dorm room essentials every college student should have.

◊  DIY Peach Sugar Scrub – I confess I may have licked my fingers after making this scrub. It’s 100% natural, made from a ripe peach, sugar and oil. It’s even gentle enough to use on your face! It’s safe to eat, but try to resist eating all that sugar.

Watching:

Doctor Who is back. Who isn’t excited? I was mostly apprehensive, but excited. The most recent season of the series was disappointing. I felt betrayed when the Doctor quickly began a flirtation with Clara Oswald so soon after losing River Song. This made me surprisingly open-minded to the new Doctor. I still need a bit more time to develop an opinion of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, but based on this first episode I may come to like him. I hope. Clara is much changed. There was too much emphasis in her first season as a companion equal to the Doctor to have her become so unsure this season. I suppose it makes sense if he becomes someone different with each regeneration.

Warehouse 13 on Netflix. The show is about two Secret Service agents recruited to hunt down artifacts with supernatural powers. It appeals to the sic-fi geek within me. I’ve moved on to the fourth season. It’s funny and dramatic. It’s also smart and interesting.
