These past few weeks have been really sweet. We’re oscillating between extreme heat and cool, breezy days, and I am appreciating them both. Mostly, I am just so happy to see everything in bloom. The jacarandas are filling the sky with their bright purple flowers. Gorgeous.
Last week we unexpectedly got to have dinner with our awesome friend Kevin from Berkeley. We took him to the Ath, and much lobster was had by all. This is the chandelier in their outdoor dining room. It makes one feel downright glamorous, no?
This week we got have dinner with our sweet friend Vasudha. I took her visit as an excuse to make my most favorite vegetable tart. And also chocolate peanut butter ice cream: success! It was a wonderful evening, and I sure wish we lived closer. Vasudha gave us this beautiful and totally rad 40-year calendar. Awesome!
I realize all these shots of my books and my tea are probably getting repetitive, but I am just so grateful for every day that I get to spend doing something I love. And the tea is an added bonus. This book has been tremendously helpful. Eric thinks I should put together a post about the books that have been most helpful re: publishing and writing. Would y’all like that? I aim to please! (Also, weird deja vu…have I asked this before? Or is it just that Eric and I keep talking about it?)
