Scenes from Everyday Life

I make no secret of the fact that I am really in love with the everyday. It’s a big part of the reason why I blog. It’s the whole reason why I do Project Life. And it’s a big part of my writing life too. These past few weeks have been so much fun, and I wanted to share some pictures of our everyday shenanigans. I used this rainbow chard to make an Ottolenghi dish that was so astoundingly good that we ate it all before I took any pictures. So I will have to make it again. And I have no problem with that.

I got my Caltech library card renewed, so I have been spending my afternoons working there, and it is heavenly. Wherever it smells like books, that’s where I want to be. They have these awesome water bottle fillers there, and I am very enamored of them. Green, convenient, and ice cold. That’s just how I like it.

Sometimes when I get too exhausted to process information anymore, I go for tea and read something for fun. Going to Peets makes me miss my Dad, but it also makes it more special every time I go there. Last time they gave me this enormous cup for tea, and that felt about right. Delicious Earl Grey, you have my heart forever.

Last weekend I came into the living room and found Eric curled up with a book on the couch. This made me so happy. It’s a hectic month for him, and I’m so glad to see him taking a little break.

This week I went to meet Eric for lunch at Chandler for the first time ever. It was warm enough to sit outside, and we shared an enormous Thai curry. It was awesomely economical.

Near the cafe I found the remains of this sledding hill. Oh, California!

And I stopped by the turtle pond to say good afternoon to my reptile friends.

Today Eric asked if I wanted to meet him in the library for a work date. Of course! We sat at either end of this enormous table, sunlight drenching us from the windows. After an hour or so, we were both so tired. “I’m sleepy,” I said, “I want to take a nap under this table.” “Me too,” he said, “We should have brought a blanket. We could have made a tent.” Oh my goodness, I love him so.
