Buying Too Much

I overdid it yesterday. Typed way too much, now that I have my laptop back. The motherboard's replaced, and it was just way too tempting to just do all the things I haven't been doing for the last two weeks...

Including buying the gorgeous brandied cherries from Bernard C.

And buying a case of Blenheim Bottlers Ginger Ales from Beverages Direct.

And buying four pounds of organic, double-cleaned buckwheat hulls.

And buying a few pounds of fresh, Oxacan drinking chocolate from Majordomo... through Gourmet Sleuth.

And proofing way too many pages on Distributed Proofreaders. Way too many. I was still doing them at midnight. Bleh.

I am also hovering over getting more rooibos and peering at all the papermaking tool sites to see what there might be to buy for making 8-1/2 by 11 pages of paper. There's lots of good-looking stuff out there, but I hesitate to buy, yet. Spring's here, and with it should be some good garage sales with blenders for cheap. I may get something after I fill in that mild gap.
