Selfie, maybe eye contact 

This is going to be me, all summer long.

To celebrate the end of the year, we ordered a special cake for the boys. I present, the Cauldron Cake: chocolate cake with candy all over, to look like a witch's cauldron.

I was at my mother-in-law's, fixing their wifi, when she asked me if I'd like some tea. Of cours I said yes, so she brought out this tray. "Just a few leftovers!" she said.

Baking, pictures of food 

I need to stop baking while I'm fasting. The fact that I can't eat these donuts for another 6 hours is very sad.

Mmm, Japanese-style chicken curry, you smell so delicious and yet it is still over an hour until sunset.

The sourdough loaf rose! Hooray!

Also I have sour cherry pie. It is a good day.

My hair is now purple for my birthday! I have been wanting this for years so I am happy we made it happen.

Three-burner dinner: spinach chicken, mabodofu, and okra dhal (from top, moving clockwise).

Upside of traveling for family funerals: I get to wake up near the beach and listen to the waves.
