I mastered bread, then once again I remembered it’s bad for us. If I wasn’t a butter junkie… Fresh bread is the ultimate butter delivery mechanism.

There is a lemon/lime/orange tree steps from or house. They just let them drop and rot, so I have no problem rescuing a few.

Isn’t that the most beautiful orange…? It tasted beautiful too.

Garden Club…

I’m beginning to realize that my outings involve either garden club or work friends.

Early for work, sunshine… as “selfie” as I get, it’s even a dumb word.

We spent the solstice together, which is rare… the solstice and getting to spend a whole day together.
