Since I've been gone, Raine and I finally got a new (used) car!
We named her Hermione- both Harry Potter fans over here! Unfortunately she has already been having a few problems, but we fixed her up and hopefully she'll be fine for a while!
I have also been massively busy lately.
I have been working 15 hours a week at my graduate assistanceship (which provides me with a tuition waiver for school- holla!), and 20 hours a week at my Practicum site, which is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility. Add 2 classes and thesis work to the mix and you end up with a jam-packed summer!
I have been thinking about all of you and keeping up with your blogs though! I just couldn't bring myself to post something without putting my full effort into it, which I have not been able to do until now. I feel like I can always tell a half-effort post from a full one!
Aside from school and work, I was lucky enough to have some free time to go to the farmer's market Wednesday morning.
It was pretty small, but I ended up getting some robust tomatoes, juicy green peppers, fragrant lemons, organic carrots, and a delightful croissant.
I ate this at work after the market and it was filled with savory mushrooms and swiss cheese. YUM.
I've also been harvesting my own heirloom cherry tomatoes from my balcony garden.
I end up with a handful of these sweet babies every week! They are perfect in salads and on their own.
So what have you all been up to lately? Is it hot where you are?
I've been keeping cool by making my own popsicles (and sitting in front of our giant box fan)! This one is fruit punch with fresh blueberries inside. I've also been loving one full of fresh pineapple juice and shredded carrot- I know that sounds weird, but it's super good!
How have you been keeping cool this summer?
