“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

I post and reblog: things I think are pretty, things that intrigue me, things I'm a fan of, and things I care about.
Common themes include: books, writing, movies, more books, cozy beds, breakfasts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, feminist issues, and occasional pieces of my life.
Tea, a drink with jam and bread.
Bread—or really, toast—makes an excellent breakfast.
Now that’s a motherfucking gifset.
I love Trader Joe’s part 1: Trader Joe’s wholegrain waffles, coffee with a few drops of Trader Joe’s “it doesn’t have random crap in it” egg nog, and warmed frozen berries (not from Trader Joe’s).
I love Trader Joe’s part 2: The puff pastry situation. That is, the problem of puff pastry being a real pain in the butt to make from scratch, but most frozen versions either a) having weird oils instead of real butter or b) being extremely expensive. Except for the Trader Joe’s one, which is only real ingredients, including butter, and is not expensive, yay! Downside: they consider it a seasonal item, and so only stock it during the holidays, boo! But anyway: these are raspberry jam turnovers, made with Trader Joe’s puff pastry, and dusted with sugar.
