new york, new york

We are headed to Albany this weekend. To wander and take polaroids and visit farmer's markets and bring home cheesecake. It will be good

Last time we were in NY, we went to the city. Our next trip to the city is in the works. It will involve Mast Brother's chocolate and visiting a tea shop and wandering among the cherry blossoms. Until then, I'll just look at pictures from last time.

monday music: shearwater

Hello, Monday.

I am listening to a lot of music from this band today. Shearwater, isn't their name wonderful? I love his voice.

friday and things i like

Despite the lovely (and unseasonable) weather of this past week, I'm glad that it's coming to a close. Changing weather and clocks makes me toss and turn at night. I am looking forward to Sunday, when I will finally be able to sleep in.

For now, here are some things I like.

I just splurged and ordered this swimsuit. Hopefully it looks as nice in person.

This piece on creating a tea ritual. It inspires me to take more time with my own morning cup. Speaking of that....

We just bought this tin of tea. It has such nice packaging!

These sunglasses.

I've been experimenting with sourdough. I have two starters sitting in my refrigerator. I've named them Fanny and Theo. This popover recipe and this waffle recipe were both highly successful.

In case there weren't enough mentions of food in this post, I thought I'd mention how awesome this book looks.

Kate wrote a great post about why you should pay attention to where your eggs come from. You should check it out.

That is all. Next week I shall be back with more film and, hopefully, tales of planting peas in the garden.

monday music: horse feathers

With the temperature set to hit 70 and sunny blue skies all around, this seemed like a good song for today. It's a day to be outside.

life on film

We went to the greenhouse for freesia and I ended up taking pictures of orchids.

Making friends...

Onions have sprouted.

Daffodils are so cheerful.

Sometimes you really just need a sundae from Ben & Jerry's. Mmmmm...

The remains of a blood orange.

Beautiful breakfast in bed.
