Friday Roundup: Pottery, Millionaires, and Moving On

by Kristina on June 1, 2012 · 4 comments

Good Morning Dinks, Happy Friday, and Happy June 1st.  As my favourite television shows are all on hiatus for the summer I have found myself being forced to find other ways to spend my time.  I know that it’s sad to admit that I live in a world that is ruled by my daily television schedule, but unfortunately it’s true. I started walking outside more often now that the weather is nicer and I have slowly started to exercise again since recovering from my eye surgery.

I am trying to find new things to do in my neighbourhood because I don’t really like to take public transportation and I also don’t want to be too far away from home in case my eye gets tired or sore and I have to lay down and rest it.  We need a new fruit bowl for our kitchen table and I am considering making it myself at this cute little ceramic store that I found a few blocks away from my apartment.  Don’t let my creative writing fool you, I am only creative on paper; my visual art talents are definitely not up to par as far as decorating and colour coordinating are concerned…so the ceramics and pottery should definitely be interesting.

I hope you all have a great weekend; here are some great posts from around the web this week:
