All Sorts (of Top Notch from Last Week)

I'm not saying my weeks are consistently full of awesome and life is perfect all the time. But I'm pretty darn privileged, and it turns out that every week brings something worth writing home about. For instance, last week the fall colors really started to come out with full force. And I did not take any pictures of them. Ha! But I did take a picture of this really wonderful fall beverage. 

I recently took this recipe for pumpkin spice latte syrup from A Beautiful Mess out for a spin and it turned out pretty much awesome. The other day I was craving a london fog and a pumpkin spice latte at the same time, so I decided to make a combo london spiced latte. I was too lazy to warm the milk in a saucepan and whip up foam, so I just nuked nuked the milk, dunked a bag of David's "cream of early grey" tea and splashed in some pumpkin syrup. Yummmmm. I'm an inventor now. 

Another really great thing is that I'm taking a Skillshare course online. Specifically, I'm taking the "Design your own Logo" course, and I've been sketching non-stop. I like learning new stuff, but I'm not going back to school until I can win back a measure of my financial independence. At about $20 a class, Skillshare is pretty much my new best friend (other than my best friend, of course). And Skillshare has a lot of stuff that is relevant to small online business owners

  1. Dude. I'm kind of annoyed with you for posting a link to that PSL syrup. I think that may own my life as soon as I make it. That is awesome! (And the idea of a PS London Fog is currently rocking my world.)
