I forgot it was July because the weather has been nice, but then the hot weather has finally hit. There will be highs in the NINETIES oh no. It will be this way all month, which means I will have to go outside early in the day if I want to go places.
This past weekend, we went to the hardware store and I got supplies to plant my basil and green onion
I’ve been growing them in water and the little pot from the store since I got them, but I would like to keep them alive even longer. Can never have too many green onions, and fresh basil smells really good. I had a few weeks where it seemed like every other recipe required fresh basil so I figure it is good to keep on hand. I looked for other fresh herbs at the store, but they were only selling seeds.
I also baked my first cake since moving. Last weekend, I made some cookies that turned out nice, but cakes are prettier.
Just plain white cake with cream cheese frosting and some sprinkles (to make it look cute!) It’s not too bad, but I think next time I will slice the cake in half so I can add a layer of frosting in the middle.
Today, I was originally planning to go visit one of the parks, but it would be an hour by train AND it’s hot, AND I slept in super late. I still ended up getting dressed up, but it was only to go shopping and sit around the apartment and blog about anime. Oh well.
Today’s outfit is my Angelic Pretty Aquarium Carnival Special Set, with socks and teaparty shoes from Sosic Shop, and a Black Ribbon petticoat. The turtle necklace is one that my boyfriend and I bought together on a daytrip a few years ago. I only wore my hair down for the picture. I ended up braiding it and then wearing a sun hat to go out shopping. I am thinking I want to find some simple headbands to wear casually since I feel so weird wearing a headbow out in public when it’s not a meetup (cause then there are a herd of lolitas with odd things on their heads so I don’t stick out).
Maybe next weekend, I can do something more exciting.
