Top 2 things about my Sunday long bike

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

1. My Sunday long bike 2. The blue raspberry and nerds blizzard I get after finishing.

some quick thoughts on summer harvest

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

1. Yesterday I realized it was the middle of July and I had yet to eat a peach or a nectarine. I have been so focused on eating all the cherries that I was missing two integral July fruits. This has already been rectified by a trip to Eastern Market this morning. 2. At Eastern […]

Seven Things: to do to pass the time while husby is on nights

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Husby just started his third year of med school, which means he’s finally seeing real patients in the real hospital and getting to do real things (like holding legs during labor and delivery. Was that TMI? oops.) And all of this real gets to happen at night for the next week. Which means we won’t […]

Seven Things: How to make yourself a birthday cake

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

I don’t often make cake. Cupcakes by the dozens, but rarely cake.  And to be honest, the cakes I’ve made in the past have been ho-hum. There was a pretty awesome sweet and salty chocolate caramel cake, but the actual cake was nothing to write home about. All the additions were amazing, but the cake was […]

On Destruction and Renewal: A garden story

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

The weekend after Easter we headed to the community garden eager to work. The farm had planned a post Easter egg hunt as well as planting and building for the day. The cool drizzle made us think that we would have low turn out for the morning, but we were hopeful the sun would break […]

Seven Things: that already drive me cray-cray about husby* six months in

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

*All in good humor of course. Last month, as the 7th approached, after having spent the past half hour rolling my eyes at him and sighing in exasperation, husby suggested that I write my monthly seven things post about things that he does that annoy me.  I already had last month’s topic picked out.  But […]

Triathlon Update

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

I finally registered for that triathlon I’ve been training for. It takes place in 3 1/2 weeks. I’m feeling pretty good about my training.  I chose a 20 week program over a more typical 16 week. And even though I started it arbitrarily, without having chosen a particular tri, it lines up perfectly with the […]

Seven Things: Hosting Easter brunch for the inlaws

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

This Easter husby and I will be hosting Easter brunch for his family. It’ll be the first hostessing I’ve done for his family. In fact it’ll also be the first time that my MIL has been to see our apartment, so it’s kind of a big event. Luckily I chose my favorite meal to host. […]

A brief garden tour

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Husby and I made a point to get home a little bit early on Tuesday to spend some extra time together since our Monday night had been completely shot.  We’re both giddy about the garden, so we decided to take a stroll, talk about our garden dreams, drop off our compost, and snap some pictures […]
