Good afternoon my darlings. While this morning was cold and gloomy, this afternoon has been warm and glorious. I managed to get my afternoon walk in. Sadly I don’t have the time to extend it today as I am close to having my final edits done on a new manuscript. It needs the bulk of my attention.
Manuscripts get needy like that towards the end.
So only the one walk. I’m hoping that tomorrow I will reach a point where more of a break is possible. I’m also hoping the weather holds. I may have to still work this weekend, but having good weather to walk in when I take breaks would be nice. I’ll have to look at the mornings forecast to see what the weekend weather holds. But I have my fingers crossed.
I have to admit, after realizing The Candy Club was having a 50% off sale on their monthly boxes, I ended up signing up for one. I got the Fun sized box which is normally $29.99 for $15. No tax, no shipping. The trick is that it ships 30 days after ordering. While waiting is such sweet sorrow, I was hoping I would somehow get the box before the sale ended so I could review it for you so there would be a better chance of knowing what you would get before you ordered. I don’t think the sale will last that long though. So I’m just letting you know in case you were interested in trying it out.
Oh also something with a time limit. Huda Beauty has Mystery boxes available. The large costs$89 and has 8 items with a retail value of $269 and the small is $49 with 4 items and a retail value of $119. Each comes with a cute little makeup bag. They are only on sale for two days. I think today is day one of the two days. If you are interested, you might want to snag one before they disappear.
Those ae the two really time limited sales I know about. Hopefully if you are interested you can take advantage of the discounts.
As for me, I have a boatload of editing before I can call it a day. I took a little extra time today to put together a marinade. We are having Tikka masala tofu tonight for dinner and the longer the tofu sits in the marinade the better it will be. Just remember if you use tofu for this get the extra firm and press as much water out of it as you can so it soaks up more of the flavor. Personally I really like it, especially as I crisp it up a bit in the pan. With me the only issue I had with tofu was with texture. Browning it with that marinade takes the texture away. I am not fooled into thinking it is meat, but it eliminates the smooth and slightly rubbery exterior my tongue doesn’t approve of. With that gone, I’m happy with it. So dinner is partially prepped, my walk is done and I am getting back to work and dreaming of sour candies. Not a bad thursday all in all.
