Week in Pictures

What a fun weekend! First, a treasured few days with my dear friend M who took the train down for another weekend visit (this is her with Pix Patisserie‘s Benedictine hot toddy), and we had lots and lots of girlfriend time catching up while of course eating drinking, and being merry at 3 Doors Down, Petite Provence, Tapalaya and Pix.…

Time to go figure out a way to differentiate our car in the grocery store parking lot from the 85% of others that are also Subaru wagons! It’s good to send the Focus packing for something more roomy while also not buying new, something that was important to me since we couldn’t afford the hybrid Niro we originally were pining…

Spring brings a bit of cheer and melancholy, all mixed together.  Cheer obviously for the gorgeousness of the tulips coming up and for the lilacs budding on a tree that just 12 years ago was a six foot stump sticking out of the ground (several years after buying my home it suddenly came back to life…talk about a gift…). I…

We can’t get enough of this gorgeous wall mural at Tamale Boy down the street from us – and besides that? It’s bar none the best place in the neighborhood, and THE best Mexican food in town, full stop. One of the places we’ll miss most, for sure. For Tarot and Tarot-friendly readers, these were my cards picked at the…

Heh. So I am almost to the halfway point of attempting to go dairy-, gluten- and refined-sugar-free suddenly I found myself, after Week 2’s shitty meals (I tried 3 new GF/DF recipes and they sucked BIG time. Let’s just say beans and quinoa are not allowed in our house for a while, mm-kay?), floating into Petite Provence for one of…

Alright, so we’re 5 days into my version of March Madness, going gluten/dairy/sugar free for an entire month to see how it affects my overall physical well-being (something I know will be a positive as I did it for a couple of years after doing a gluten/dairy/egg elimination diet), and so far I’ve made it. Well, except for the GF/Vegan…

Oh happy day! The crazy late-winter snow did not stop our manzanita (which we’ve potted up as this baby is definitely coming with us!) from its blossoming. LOVE. And speaking of pretty things, husband surprised me with these 🙂 STOKED! We got four boxes of 24″ square carpet tiles for the basement – no glue required, they just lock together…

Absolutely fantastic weekend, I gotta say. At long last, the reunion with one of my dearest friend happened when my friend M took the train down here from Seattle to visit for the weekend. And, as anticipated, we both saw each other at the station and ran and cried in each others arms. After 18 years apart, it was so…

After taking a whole two weeks off from making bread, I couldn’t help myself and tried out another recipe from my How to Make Bread cookbook, this one being an olive & herb bread. Now I’m actually not one of those folks who like the loaves with huge pieces of food mixed up in them (and I do not like…

Always to be celebrated – the first signs of life as our daffodils begin to emerge from the ground. It’s a bittersweet moment as after 12 years it will be my last time seeing these lovelies, but I know wherever we are headed will bring new beauty. And dude – it was in the upper 50’s this week – what’s…
