Did I just lure you in here with some crazy cat photos? The little cats are clearly enjoying the new duvet, and the subsequent rearranging of all our bedroom furniture, spurred by some slightly over-ambitious weekend plans. I take the blame here, Intern did not encourage this plan to move absolutely everything out of our bedroom, then back in again (after triple-vacuuming every inch)… but he did support me when I declared my desperate need to change everything. Thanks fella. Our bedroom is now freshly rearranged, the cats are well-napped, and I’ve been very productive ever since.
On Friday I’ll be sharing some news and updates about the upcoming Skill Exchange + StoreFrontLab pop-up in September… but for now, how about something else entirely?
The garden is going going going (at the moment). We’ve been eating fistfuls of snow peas, and have picked a few baby zucchini. I am resisting every urge to pick the squash blossoms, settling instead on checking the progress of our fence-covering efforts. The honeysuckle is going crazy and spreading out, and the beans are happily reaching past the top of the fence. Our lettuce has gone bitter, and we’re slowly pulling it out to make room for new starts. I’ve coaxed Intern out into the backyard on several occasions lately. This weekend we drank margaritas (in the July mist) and grilled shrimp, tortillas and peaches for dinner. Treat yourself and get the grilled and marinated shrimp recipe from the most recent Bon Appetite magazine. Turmeric, fish sauce, and a spicy cilantro-chili-ginger dipping sauce. We made it on the 4th of July, and I can’t stop thinking about it/making it/talking about making it.
