 Have you ever thought about the word 'jungle'? Say it slowly to yourself a few times. It's a strange word. Jungle... jungle. Ha ha!  But that's beside the point.

These are the plants I have in my room. They are a Happy Thought. The nice thing about it is it keeps the air very fresh. Which is nice because my room is right above the kitchen. Food smells really good when it's cooking and when you're eating it, but after that... not so much. So, it's nice to have plants. And this is a very random post. So there.

Hello there! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. Ours was splendid! A lovely day, a yummy dinner and a delightful time!

Tomorrow we're going to go cut down a Christmas tree with the fam! 
"It's so exciting it makes me giddy!" -Persuasion (...What else?)
 We've also been working on Christmas presents which is one of our favorite pastimes I have to say...  And I remembered some pictures I took of a present I got last year from my sweet sister-in-law! A handmade gift of course... and such a good idea! Genius in fact!
It is made out of pretty, blue paper and book pages from one of my favorite books: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader! Although the pictures don't do it justice.
 And here it is hanging so nicely above my bookshelf. Very appropriate I must say. =]
 She cut out various sizes of circles, bent them in the most charming manner, stapled them onto brown twine and voila!
Isn't it the cutest? I love it!

 My favorite line in the book... the opening words: "There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it."

Well, happy days to you all! I wish you all a good night and merry morning!
