Next-to-the-last day of the challenge! I decided the day Jacob came home from tour would make a good day to end the photo-taking part of this challenge, so here we are at the day before. I was missing my sweet beet intensely, sort of dying for tomorrow when I could pick him up at JFK and deposit him at his rightful place in the secret lounge area of the shop:
The secret lounge looks a lot different, and cuter now. Jacob however, is just as insanely adorable today as he was last month when this was taken.
But first I had to live an entire other day.
Adrienne’s photo from dinner last Monday made me realize that my hair needed a trim, so I did the worst thing imaginable and just hacked off the ends while it was in a ponytail. Whatever, no one ever sees my hair down anyway. DI-motherfucking-Y, my friends.
Morning walk, with Little Jackie Paper and blueberries. And shoes that don’t match my t-shirt, yep. But my kitchen clogs do, so there.
I made (and ate) the best batch of croissants and darling chocolatines (!) yet.
Utterly amazing with grapefruit marmalade with smoked sea salt.
The Divine Ms. M and I had a funny and delicious lunch of pasta with the foraged pesto from a few days ago, plus CSA veggies and tempeh I’d made
that Maresa bought, used half of, accidentally left half at work and donated to our lunch. I said, “Thanks for the tempeh!” and she said, “Thanks for the tempeh!”
WE ARE FREAKING ADORABLE AT WORK, YES.
And I had some sour cherries dipped in chocolate and sugar:
Then I went out to dinner and had the Sept. 11 conversation mentioned a few days ago. All in all, it was a lovely meal with lovely company.
Then I walked back to work and finished up a few things, because tomorrow was AIRPORT DAY!!!! and I wanted not to have to worry about work.
I finished off the night with one of these guys:
And I was happy, happy, happy, happy.
