I'm operating on about 9% of my brain power right now, so instead of doing something ridiculous like drink a cup of coffee at 10:18 at night, I'm just going to ramble and share some recent and minor goings on:
**There was no Self-Portrait Saturday yesterday. I remembered at about 11:00 at night, at which point I realized the camera battery was dead and the charger was still in the car from our trip to New York. Oops. I then looked through my photo files to find a recent photo that I hadn't already used for a Self-Portrait Saturday. And there were...exactly zero. This is precisely the reason I have created this ritual.
**I spent yesterday afternoon knitting with two lovely friends at a new breastfeeding store with a cafe inside. Do you want to know what it's called? Melons and Clementines. Can you believe they actually went ahead with that name? How awesome.
**There is a squirrel who has decided that our balcony garden is his new lunch spot. He has now eaten all but one of our tomatoes. I didn't even know squirrels ate tomatoes. Is this normal? To my long list of "things to do differently in the garden next year," I now have to add "figure out how to keep the damn squirrels away."
**We made homemade ice cream tonight with a friend's Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker. It's like a giant hamster ball that you fill with ice and rock salt, with an inner chamber for the cream, sugar, and other ingredients. The end result was ridiculously delicious. I now understand the big deal about making your own ice cream. I also now understand why I SHOULD NOT OWN ONE OF THESE.
Good night all! I'll now enjoy the sound of the rain while reading myself to sleep (which will take approximately 45 seconds...)
