All that remains in our beautiful apartment.  The good is the move is almost done.  The bad is that I'm really going to miss this place.

Icepops!  The treat of grade school picnics everywhere.  Perfect for a blistering day like this Memorial Day was.

A goodbye note from a most awesome roommate.  It's sad when things come to an end, but onwards and upwards is the only way life can move if it's going to be enjoyed.  Besides, he's not escaping us for that long if I have anything to say about it...

Crispin Hard Apple Cider!  One of my favorite summer drinks - light and sweet and tart and best served over ice to make a perfect refresher.  (Please enjoy responsibly!)

Penne pasta and meatballs in a cheesy mushroom sauce.  Yummy.

Finally!  The results of the tart crust seen last week.  Strawberry lemon tart, made for my mum for a belated Mother's Day present.

Ladies and gentlemen, the best of today's modern art.  Found in a place of honor.

This picture is driving home the fact that I need a new computer so I can use my proper camera again, because this phone-picture in no way does my mushroom lasagna justice.

My theatre's season announcement party happened last night.  The next year is going to be amazing.

Tonight marked the end of the run of an amazing show that I was lucky enough to play a part in.  I'm going to miss it, but lord - it went out with a bang.

Moving out and looking on the bright side of the next step forward.

STRAWBERRIES.  And oh, how I need to get my computer fixed so I can use my proper camera again.  Because this picture in no way does them anything APPROACHING justice.

This plushie mysteriously appeared in our apartment.  No one knows where it came from.  I've taken to calling him Binkie.

Guess what I spent my night doing - the sexiest dance ever.

Bad: getting locked out of my car, and in a truly imbecilic fashion too.  Good: having someone come pronto to break in for me so I didn't have to take to the driver's side window with a hatchet.  I give you Nathan, my automotive hero.

So pictures of the result of the tart crust are forthcoming, but my computer sadly crashed and so I've been forced to using my cell's camera to take my daily photos, which did not do the tart justice.  So here, have some really lovely street art instead.

Mmm, homemade tart crust - tastier than it looks, I promise.  What will it become?  Tune in tomorrow to find out!

I have many different paintings and pieces that I love from artists of all types and ages and styles.  But Picasso is my overall favorite.

Blackberry wine, heady and thick and sweet.

Classic children's books and the odd thrill of sharing something from your childhood with a little person today.

Went to the zoo today! And yes, I am a huge nerd, because I was giggling like a five-year old the entire time.

We saw pandas, who always appear to be the most chill animals ever.


And LION CUBS ZOMG.  Pictured here with Mama too - Happy Mother's Day!

This may be hard to believe, but this is a theatre.  A black box theatre, actually.  And it's currently my theatre.  Because the show I've been directing, that I've been working on for three months or so now, is opening tonight in this space.

Show time, baby.

I've never seen this kind of honeysuckle before - it's like a tiger lily and a honeysuckle merged into one.

Play ground tire swing.  Always wanted one of these in the yard when I was a kid.  Finally got a proper tree swing in my early teens.  I still swing on it ten years later.

The remnants of today's challenge - a Frostie and french fries from Wendy's.

Happy May Day!


To celebrate of the start of my springtime favorite month, I went out and bought a special fruit for myself.  Behold, the mango.  Just look at those colors.  How can you not want to sink your teeth in?


Most decadent fruit ever.  Just look at all that juice.  Mmm.
