I haven't been my usual blog-happy self lately. I'm not updating very much, and when I am, it's short and not too exciting. I haven't been visiting much either. Not because I don't want to, I've just been busy. The school is having me write up some manuals to teach writing and I don't have very long to finish it. So that hour or so a day that I used to blog is now being taken up by work. Blast!
I'm also going through a bit of a writer's block. I just can't think of anything interesting to jot down! What's the matter with me? My pool of creativity is all dried up! Any questions you may have? Give me a topic, I need inspiration.
It's been hot here. A few days ago was unbelievable, now it's just regular hot again. But it looks like it'll be climbing back up to unbearable again soon.
I love watching the fruits and vetetables go through seasons here. We had a brief cherry season where every street corner had people with baskets of irresistable plump cherries. Then came peaches and funny little things that looked like flattened peaches. I've seen some mangos out lately, and corn seems to be popping up everywhere too. Ha; corn, popping... oy. There have been other things, often fruits I've never seen before and therefore can't tell you the names.
I just went outside and bought some potatoes, peppers, onions, and some kind of pea/bean things. They laughed at me because i bought so few, but I've never tried them before and I know my boyfriend doesn't like beans, so no point getting too many. All together I spent about 90¢. I also picked some stuff up at Walmart (the meat and things I don't buy off the street) - 4 chicken breasts, 2 pork steak things, 1/2 a dozen eggs. butter, 2 packs of bacon... and a pack of badminton birdies. Only $10. It's going to be a real shock to the system when I go shopping back home.
Here's the view from my window. I love buying from these guys :)
And here's a lady shucking corn. Hmm.
Well, now that I've regaled you with fascinating tales from my shopping list, I shall move along to doing work. I'll do my rounds as soon as a get a chance.
