I made asiago, potato, and fava bean cakes with the leftovers from this dinner the other night.

paris in a flash

We've all seen photos of Paris before, so I'm going to run through these, quick and dirty. It was a really fun time being in Paris with the sis, but you can't really capture that in a picture very well. All in all we found everyone to be really nice and patient. It was chilly and miserable much of the time, but we were able to see and do a lot of the things on our lists. Of course, we'll have to go back several times to really get it all done (hint hint).






















Au Revoir.

new book


Pretty fun stuff.

Preview


Meet my lunch buddy. I put up some Barcelona zoo photos over on Persuasion for you as a little taste of my Europe adventures. As for all my other photos -- well I'm working on it (for the rest of my life).

This picnic spot was overlooking the river otter, who was happily caching a fish in his enclosure. He had the fish up on the rocks and would pick at it and play with it, then go for another swim, then come back again. This heron and his buddy were both trying hard to get the fish for himself, but were highly afraid of the otter (barely their match in size) and were also not too friendly to each other.
In the end it was me and the pigeons (who shared my crumbs) who won.

home sweet ruby


I am back from my European adventures and I cannot wait to show all my photos. I have actually been back for several weeks now, but arrived home to a dead computer, covered in cat puke. But how can you stay mad at this angel?

I'm working through some 1500 photos and will have some up to show in a couple of days, please be patient with me.
