Somehow, it is Spring Break already! The time is just flying by. Unfortunately, I am not doing anything fancy, like traveling, for break. Instead, I am staying home in good ol’ Loretto, MN working at CVS and enjoying some small town festivities like Friday fish fries and craft fairs.
I started my Spring Break off the best way possible–with my mom! Friday night after arriving home, we went to a restaurant in town for the weekly fish fry during Lent. It was so yummy! I love Lent because it gives me a good reason to eat a lot of fish. On Saturday morning, my mom and I went to the annual craft fair in St. Michael. We go every year, and it is always a blast! The entire St. Michael-Albertville middle school is taken over by craft tables and sellers. Blankets, jellies/jams, garden decor, purses, figurines carved out of wood, and so much more! For me–a person who absolutely loves arts and crafts and who has an addiction to cute little knick knacks–a craft fair is sort of like a mini paradise.
I even ended up leaving the fair with some goodies of my own! I now have a new wallet, a jewelry tree for my earrings, delicious strawberry rhubarb jam, and the coolest apron I have ever seen. I call that a very successful day!
I even tested out my new apron by making cookies (kind of). I found some Christmas cookies in the freezer and decided to top off the afternoon with fresh-baked reindeer cookies.
So far, the rest of my Spring Break has been spent working at CVS, organizing stuff and sending emails for Colleges Against Cancer (the club that I am the Publicity Chair for), catching up on episodes of Pretty Little Liars, and preparing for The Hunger Games movie. I have yet to start working on homework, but homework can wait. Spring Break is my much-needed relaxation time, and I will use as much of it as possible doing nothing productive.
