Whee! I totally woke up this morning super stuffed with a sore throat and I should've called in sick but have a bunch of work to do in my job job. So, I came to the office and I'm trolling my reader, gearing up to take on this insurmountable pile of work I have to do. May = crazy making times. I'm kind of looking forward to it.
Kitchen: We just moved in with a family that we're good friends with the other day. It's so awesome! I've been inspired and cooking a lot (tonight is my night off!) and have made muffins and this pumpkin loaf by Isa Chandra (on the KindLife). So good. Tomorrow I'm traveling to Ucluelet for derby benchmarking and I thought I'd make myself Onigiri for the car ride out there (and to fuel myself all good). Every time I type the word, "onigiri" I crave the spicy tuna and negitoro onigiri I used to get in Japan. YUM.
Community: Not doing board work for roller derby is an incredible thing and it's been really good at helping me to focus my community-building energies into other directions. Last week I helped co-organize a Food Coalition Potluck to bring those interested in food together to share a potluck meal (that was SO delicious). The group was larger than I expected and they had lots of great ideas, but I'm not sure who is going to take on organizing the next meet up.
Craft: I'm craving the time and space to make crafts! I've been knitting my newest sweater up like a storm, it's definitely the lightest weight sweater I've ever knit! And, I'm going to sew Sethie a Totoro plush for his birthday in 2 weeks!
What are you working on right now?
