When I had finals to study for in college, it was always really important—urgent, really—to vacuum my dorm room.
It's the day before Easter, and I have tomorrow's dinner to get ready for, laundry to do, and a trip to pack for, and so
making vegetables out of marzipan cannot wait.
And, of course, things have escalated. What began as a carrot project soon involved potatoes
and then radishes.
In case you're also looking to waste time, there's a nicely illustrated explanation of how-to here. I used rosemary sprigs for the greenery.
Did I mention I completed my taxes this afternoon? And that I did them myself using TurboTax? And that it was actually really fun? I decided that I did not want to spend hundreds of dollars again being bossed around by a small woman at H.R. Block. But regardless of how delighted I am with myself, I did think I deserved a reward. And these were more fun that vacuuming.
