Damp and... Sun-kissed?

Tubing on Sunday, Cedar Point (interrupted by rain) today, kayaking tomorrow--I'm going to show up to my first day at my new job looking pretty pink and wrinkled...

TBTuesday: My Bus Ride to Austin

I was going through old pictures to submit some for a graduation slideshow to play before the ceremony, and ended up finding a lot of selfies from my 30+ hour bus ride from Detroit to Austin. Presented without comment below:

My Old Sandals

The first step to being a minimalist isn't to throw stuff out, but to use it up.

A few days ago, I realized that the cork on my sandals was crumbling away under my heels and big toes, that I'd worn all the way through the sole at the heel on one sandal, and almost all the way through on the other.

It feels good, having waited until my old sandals were really used up before buying a new pair. Hopefully my new pair will last longer if I take proper care of them.

You're never as popular at a co-op...

...As when you're making cookies.

I've made cookies twice in the past three days, first for a "Random Acts of Kindness" event at the LBJ School (molasses cookies) and then as dessert tonight (peanut butter cookies). Both batches got pretty good reviews!

I know cookies aren't the healthiest, and that does matter to me, but there's something kind of nice about how honest they are about it. No one hears "cookie" and assumes it's anything other than what it is.
