Yesterday was: a quick to granville island trip, a warm rainy night, dense cinnamon rugelach, the intoxicating scent of fresh bread and pork, and burgers at hells kitchen

Dec 31


Yesterday was: Fresh olibollen, dreary day, a warm blanket, tv marathons, sourpuss martini and a pizza celebration and my first olive.


Yesterday was: a long morning sleep, a walk in the snow, a day in the kitchen, a two cookies stand-off, spicy stew, dinner with family, first aid on the puppy and a cardamom coffee creme-caramel.


Happy New Year!

Another wonderful night in the city.

We went to the symphony and though I have no photo evidence I’ll tell you it was magical.

The following day we went for a short hike up mount thom.


Much love from a rainy city, where the groundhog saw his shadow.

Yay! Six more weeks!
