But I’ve got lots of food, Boh, and the porch. Here’s what’s been happening ’round here this week.
It was cold enough that I needed my puffy coat to be on the porch. In June.
No idea what this guy is up to here.
Chocolate dipped frozen bananas, some with almonds, for an Arrested Development viewing party.
I just liked this combination of many of my favorite things. That blue pullover vest is maybe the first piece of gear I bought in college when I started leading backpacking trips. It has traveled the world with me, and it is still one of my favorite things to grab when I’m just a little bit chilled.
A dear friend came to town last weekend, and we made a breakfast feast: toast, fresh tomatoes, a wonderful carrot and radish slaw, and eggs with spinach and fresh basil.
Working while Boh keeps watch.
More working. Boh not exactly watching.
Tree along the path behind my house. Hard to see in this picture, but there’s evidence of pileated woodpecker work on this trunk.
More porch reading — prepping for the course I’m TAing this summer.
Last night. This dog wanted to snuggle, and I was happy to read a graphic novel while he lounged, napped, and snored.
This morning: coffee and breakfast (biscuits, yogurt, blueberries, and last year’s canned peaches) on the porch.
We’re easing into summer over here, and trying to balance different kinds of work with at least some summer fun. How is your summer going? Also, what are you guys knitting? I need some inspiration.
