navy blue swimming.


a bit tired of overtly sexy, which a bikini by nature just is. this reminds me of my mom in the 70s, wonder what she'd think of that. too bad they're sold out of my size.

knife stand.


one more thing to covet. sure beats the block of wood currently sitting on my kitchen counter...


leaning coat rack.


brilliant. now, why didn't I think of that?

(summer) minestrone.


with some help from freshly picked wax beans and green beans from dad's garden, suger snap peas, some organic veggie stock and what was left in my bag of trader joe's harvest grain blend, this soup appears. yum. I could very well trick mw into eating his vegetables. (adapted from heidi swanson's spring minestrone recipe from her lovely cookbook, super natural cooking).

my humps, redux.



not explicitly an alanis fan, but this is a pretty genius combination of disparate musical aesthetics. once I start listening, I can't stop. almost as good as the american analog set/kelly clarkson mash up.
