…and one perfect ringlet. Sometimes, my hair cooperates. Usually, like today, it's shortly before bedtime. :P

Inspired by my tea success, last night I cleared out all of our oils, vinegars, and other cooking stuffs. Anything expired was tossed, which was about half of what was in there. Sorted the small amount left and lined them up on the freshly cleaned shelf. Not perfect, but a start. I think baskets for each type would be better, so I could pull out, for instance, all of the oils, use what I need, and then put the basket back. I do that with my hair products and its a huge time saver and keeps everything organized, despite having two dozen-ish hair products in regular rotation. Narrow baskets would work well for this part of the kitchen, don't you think? Now, what should I clean out next?

Last Friday, I cleaned out our tea area, which was overflowing with boxes of tea, some expired, some only half full, some duplicates. Consolidated everything into those boxes in the back, and put 5 bags of each kind in a bread pan. Prince Charming's lone box of Irish Breakfast was left alone, and given a prime location. As a bonus, I've had at least one cup of tea every day since.

Another afternoon in Old San Juan spent on the veranda, reading and drinking free coffee. Also, I didn't get sunburnt today. And all of our required shopping is done. Yay!

Smiling on the beach after snorkeling! This was before we realized how sunburnt we both got from the hour in the water. But it was so much fun!

Someone just figured out that we're going on a trip and she's not coming with. A week is a long time to be apart when you're a cat.

I rode the holiday train this morning. Didn't know they decorated doe of the light rail cars – pleasantly surprised.

What are you looking at? That's the armhole of the jacket I just finished. Done completely with French seams. So awesome.

My instincts were right. Velvet trim and a good ironing can cover any manner of sins in sewing. Just the sleeves left and my new fall jacket will be done, just in time for the thaw this weekend.

This morning's cleaned-up, work-appropriate version on my Merida hair. Clearly the new curly product I'm using is working. :)
