I am in a contest with my own mind. I struggle to push out the things I do not need to worry about at certain times. Maybe I am just tired. I do feel a little over stretched. Anyway, I just got back a few weeks ago from another trip to Atlanta and Guam. I haven't had the energy to write about my time there but I will share soon. It was beautiful and fun but I need some serious time to recover and get back in the groove.
I'll just share about some simple but fun things I got while I was off-island:
There is a kiddy store at the Guam Premium Outlets that sells these seedling starter kits. DJ, my BFF's youngest son, has become a bit of a farmer so I thought these would be fun projects for him. I got mini pumpkins and strawberries (of all things) just to see if they'd grow.
Everything is labeled organic now. 100% green, recycled and organic it claims.I am sure the pumpkins will grow.
Not sure about these. We may have to start them off in the fridge.
The packet contains seeds, potting soil and the pot.
I hope they sprout! I should've gotten the peppers too.
They had these tiny bottles of jams and honey along with the continental breakfast during my 3-day conference. I asked everyone I could for their empties. I'm going to put some of my sand collection in jars (the right one is unopened honey and the other one is filled with Tumon sand).
I also wanted to try this Italian spring water. For $3.00 I also got to keep the nice bottle. What a refreshing slice (drop) of Tuscany. What can I do with this now?
Shopping on Guam is great. That's mostly because we don't have a proper mall on Saipan. I get to buy nice shoes for cheap whenever I go back!
My new shoes.
My old shoes. They're probably over 2 years old.
The mind likes what it likes I guess but they really are different. I mean, the new pair of dress shoes have laces. Okay, that's just because I couldn't find slip-ons that weren't too pointy at the ends. If I had money, I think I'd be a collector of shoes. Problem is I am a terrible supinator and I am a terrible shoe scuffer. One day, my blog identity will be: The Supenating Shoe Scuffer.
Good to be back. I miss you Saipan!
