This recipe, now officially Ken's favorite thing. And yes, I will admit that I was inspired to get my bake on by this.

The kind of afternoon you wish could just last forever.

At the airport, here to retrieve Dean from his Nicaraguan adventures, and a reprise of yesterday's artwork greets me! If you ever find yourself at Logan Airport in Boston with time to spare, it is worth it to explore the walkways that connect Terminal B to the other terminals -- all the most wonderful sea creatures in brilliant mosaics on the floors. If I ever win the lottery and can have custom floors in my home....

(All this and a happy, healthy Dean bubbling over with stories to tell, with sadness that his adventure has ended and with thorough delight to be home home home.)

Summer camp art for me this morning. The interconnectedness of my universe is about to get crazy....

And just like that, this birdie grew up and flew away, too.

Trying to find the grace, and breath in the beauty, on a morning where I've gotten myself up and out so early in order to work out -- and then discovering through no fault of my own when I get here that I cannot. Well, I'm sure my stuff will turn up eventually and I'm sure there's a reason to be grateful to be at work more than 2 hours early....

I was hoping to have some great story to tell, all about Stumptown, to caption my photo of this tired work-morning's treat. But while the company's web site wants to tell me a LOT about their sourcing and roasting, they don't seem to want to say anything about their name (or else they've hidden in really well). In any case, to me, it brought to mind the process I am in -- grinding it out, stumping along, just trying to get through.

Robin nest update: from the three eggs there is now what appears to be one thriving baby bird, eagerly awaiting mama's return to the nest. Thinking of my own baby bird, flown down to Central America, and very much NOT needing me to feed or otherwise care for him (in the active, daily survival kind of way); word is that all is well and that he's thrilled to be where he is.

The bunny ate the rest of the plant down to the absolute nubbins, but left just enough for this one blossom to burst.

This hydrangea, moved with us from our old house, seems to have settled in all right except that each year it only puts out one or two blooms. Ah, but it's worth it.

The bunny really seems to trust me, or at least doesn't seem to know that it shouldn't.

A remnant of an outdoor sculpture, hanging down from a branch, inviting me to change my view.
