Today was a day of many little frustrations. I woke up late again, because I had trouble sleeping. I don’t care what TikTok says, I’m not drinking lettuce water to get some rest. I’ve tried some kooky things but I’m not doing that. Don’t care how soporific the effect is.
It’s time for another recipe! First, the recipe for pumpkin pasties. Then, me blathering onward about my occasionally questionable culinary capabilities and the memories this particular feast holds for me.
This is an interesting one for my fellow book-addled Potterheads.
I originally thought I was just going to use this as a cross-challenge, rather than an additional challenge. Instead, I am going to use it as a possible way to clear off a few books from the ‘To Be Read” shelf.
I’m not sure what level I will manage, though.

As ever, progress will be posted on my Goodreads account. Individual reviews will be posted as well.
