So my day of putting up my garden stock has gone awry. I’m used to cooking on a gas stove and I’ll admit that ever since we moved here I’ve had to tinker with my recipes for this electric stove. I think I’ve finally gotten my bread times and temps fixed, but when it comes to canning I realize that heaver cookers + glass top do not mix. The eyes are smaller and more fragile. I’m still going to try it, but I’m going to have to be very careful. I miss my gas range. :(




Should I be this excited about all the work I have to do tomorrow? Lol! We picked this today but there is still so much left to pick… next week i’ll be doing more plus green beans, squash, okra, and lots more. Tired but happy!

I’M FUCKING SCREAMING OMGGGGGG THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE 90S TO ROMANTICIZED BY NON-90S KIDS FUCK

I feel like a legend.

Oh dear God, it has begun.

May god have mercy on us.

*facedesk* I’m debating pulling out the most annoying Savage Garden song I can and sending it to them…

I don’t even have words… is this what the 70’s kids felt like when people started wearing bell bottoms and romanticizing about free love?

My answer:

kissmyatticus:

book--quotes:

….all books I have never read. Excellent. LETS DO THIS!

Burn: Wheel of Time
Read: 1-800-Where-R-U because Meg Cabot
Rewrite: The Graveyard Book (maybe?)

Put 3 books in my ask & make me choose!

THIS IS BLASPHEMY

Wait… am I reading this correctly in that someone has chosen to BURN The Wheel of Time?

"At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers - shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader."

THIS CROW FUCKING UNDERSTANDS WATER DISPLACEMENT. WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO BE TOLD EVERY YEAR BY A TEACHER HOW WATER DISPLACEMENT WORKS. DO THEY THINK I’M LESS INTELLIGENT THAN A FUCKING CROW? FUCKING DONE.


Crows discovered the principle of displacement in the third century BC, when the philosopher Awkimedes, upon noticing the level of his bird bath rose in proportion with the amount of his body that was submerged, reportedly exclaimed “EURECAW!” and flew through the streets of Athens shouting his discovery.

EURECAW


Crows are my favorite. You don’t even know. NPR did this whole series on them. They recognize faces of humans even when they are wearing masks. What’s more, they have a crazy communication network where they can let other birds thousands of miles away know which humans have wronged them. IT’S CRAZY COOL.

Unless you are in the Wheel of Time fandom. Then it’s the scariest thing you will ever know.

So there’s this new guy at work and he told me he loved history and literature. Naturally I wanted to talk to him about this. We were discussing our mutual love of Shakespeare (we both claim A Midsummer Night’s Dream as our fave) when one of his department workers (who is very tiny) came in carrying a huge box of vegetables, yelled at him to help her, then left. I looked at him and said “Though she be but little, she is fierce!”

AND HE DIDN’T GET IT.

it was so perfect. the perfect situation. why do these things happen? why. no one will understand my lit wit. just once i want someone to acknowledge my batman-like book reflexes.
