Sundays are Best for Breathing

Today I woke to finish an English essay.
I went off to work
only to return home to plan suppers for this week.
In between planing and Hulu
I wrote some letters,
readied a package,
and generally prepared myself for the week ahead.
I like the feel of Sundays,
especially when it's raining.
It's calm,
breathing in

and out.

I'm ready week-
bring it on.

Today is a Day for Making

Today is a Tuesday.
A rather cold one in these part.
There was a lot of convincing to be done so that a 8AM Spanish class would be attended
and the warm bed would become abandoned.

Fall is really upon us.
And I have apple!

Courtesy of my mother and her broken car I got a whole bag full of crab apples.
That is when I decided a pie must be made.
I started with a Martha Stewart crust:

Mixed my fruit with some cinnamon and sugar.

This is the best part of apple pie.
Eating the sugary spiced apples.

Is that not the best pie you've seen all day?
I know right!

In other news I found that the BBC's Sherlock is pretty FREAKIN' AWESOME!
(To be honest I think all of the BBC is awesome. Their accents, their programing, their news. I love it all.)
And also that I can knit quite well while watching is on Netfix.
(I really like to multitask.)
So as one thing leads to another,
I would like to announce that I have finally finished my sock.

That's right,
just the one I've been working on all summer.
So time for the next one . . . 
. . . I'll let you know how that goes . . .

Movin' In

I mentioned briefly that I was going to UW Stevens Point instead of Eau Claire in the fall.
Well that happened.
I'm in and settled as of yesterday's blackberry cobbler.

In the three short days I've been here I've done a lot.
I adopted this cute couple for my very own.

Yesterday I went to a chilly Jazz fest with these beautiful people.

When the cold got the better of us we abandoned the park for the kitchen
and Tony and I went to work.

All in all it's already been a pretty crazy time.

I can't wait for more of the same!

I almost forgot!
I made today my baking day.
I made zucchini bread from the foot and a half long beast my mother bestowed on me.
Jerry (my roomy/landlord) had some blue berries he didn't know what to do with so I made muffins.
They're a little anemic, but super tasty!

Have a bright day!
