✿ Today was driving practice downtown. IT WENT WELL. Turns out that Sunday mornings are an excellent time for driving in the areas that make me the most nervous. So, I expect I'll be doing more of that in the future. Starting next week. Which is great, because it means that if I drive down to the library, it means that I have enough time and energy to spend exploring the nature trails on Macdonald Island and along the river. I don't get to do that when I take the bus.

✿ I bought some boots yesterday, and I'm completely enamoured with them. Stylish dark brown leather lace-ups. They don't just look good, they're comfortable, and they fit properly, and considering how much of an ordeal it can be for me to find shoes like that... I'm happy. I feel like I'd actually be able to wear these on a regular basis, unlike my other ones, which all have heels on 'em. I mean, I love wearing heels, but considering my typical weekend wanderings are anywhere from 5-10km... well. Anyway, they make me feel very stylish and handsome, and I can hardly wait to wear them at every opportunity. (It's been kind of hard to motivate myself to dress fashionably without appropriate footwear, y'know?)

✿ You know, I've lived in this house for 17 years, and it's only just now that I discovered there is enough room on my windowsill for some flowerpots. Soooo, now I have some seeds planted for rosemary and spearmint. I'd hoped for sage too, but wasn't able to find it available anywhere - ah, well. This is a nice start, anyway. I'm not sure where on earth I'll put them in winter, assuming this is successful, but we'll see how it goes.

✿ I got SO much writing done today! It helps that for a good portion of Saturday, I had the house to myself, which meant that I could write at the kitchen table, where there's lots of room and light, and nobody to pester me, unlike usual. Amazing what can happen when there isn't someone poking their nose in my business every five seconds. :V I managed to make some progress on my NOFM assignment, which is nice. Also the Vesa/Suvi "accidental courting" thing that I started earlier this week. Aaaand I finished the draft for the Joona/Anssi thing I started for Porn Battle (and who knows, maybe I'll have finished editing it by the time the next amnesty session goes up in June-ish). So, yes. Good weekend for writing. I'm really happy about it.

✿ Today I went geocaching and this time I actually FOUND THE THING. I swear, I've been past this place twice before, looking for it, and the container was right in front of my face the whole time. [/facepalm] Wandering around in the woods is something I've never done enough of, and I'm starting to get more confident when it comes to mucking around in the bush, so hopefully I'll be able to get out there more often and find some more caches. I'm really curious about the condition of the ones in the Birchwood - I have a feeling that a lot of them might have been damaged, but you never know. Anyway, I've bought some thick gloves to deal with the rosebushes, and with luck I'll be able to set aside time for some wandering before the mosquitoes become intolerable. Unfortunately, it's already bear season, but ehhhh one can't have everything, I guess.
