Working on gluten-free, dairy-free arancini. This is my kind of work.
"Just a little something I threw together for lunch," says Danny. I certainly don't take this for granted.
Sunday dinner. Hello, black cod season.
The finished cake. Happy birthday to our dear friend.
Today is the celebration of a dear friend's birthday. This morning she asked if I could make the cake without dairy or sugar. Sure. This is the start of a honeyed spice cake with coconut-vanilla frosting.
Last night I played my first softball game of the season. (First base, all my life.) this morning, Lu knocked down a sharp grounder at first and scored the first run of the season. Right now, it's baseball all the time. I'm mighty fine with that.

This book arrived today and I'm already smitten. We only use dairy-free milks around here, since 3 out of the 4 of us are lactose intolerant. I've started making some but I wanted to learn more. This has a great recipe for homemade coconut milk we're trying today. And a hazelnut-cinnamon pudding tha
This evening, after dinner, I taught Lucy how to throw a baseball. She got it, fast. And then we played catch for half an hour. I have been waiting for this to happen since she was born. #ahspring

Oh Vashon library, how well you know me. Okay. I'll take all three. (Libraries will never stop astounding me. I can take these home for free?!?)
On this day, I think about how lucky I am to know this boy and his sister (behind him in pink amidst this fine frenzy of friends and music at the Unitarians this morning). I feel gratitude and empathy for his birth mother, who chose us to be his family. I feel grateful to my mother, for bringing me
ICYMI: This, this, this. Young writers, take note.
Behold the boy who refuses to go to sleep. I can't blame him. The day was filled with baseball games, friends for dinner outside at the big table, volleyball with a big beach ball high in the air with those dear friends, and now a dozen books and an old PeeWee Herman doll. Plus, it's nearing 9 and i
