It was a week of new beginnings. I saw and tried all sorts of new things. My eyes are wider now!
I broiled grapefruit many times. There is something nice about warm citrus, with extra sugar. Especially when it's cold and grey out. When you broil the fruits in a cast iron pan you feel like a western pioneer who has access to citrus fruit.
Pho! I made two batches. The first one I fed to a sick boyfriend. The second I added too much fish sauce to. They both were fulfilling, though. Something about letting the broth cook for hours and letting it make your small apartment smell like chicken and garlic. It makes me feel like a strong woman with a good sense of tradition. That's mostly all I have ever wanted to be. I think most people wouldn't believe that.
The snow started melting this week! It started getting warmer every day. I can now walk on the sidewalks without treading so carefully. Soon I'll be romping around in the grass in sandals!
Every morning I wake up this is what my bed looks like. I've realized lately this must mean I thrash in my sleep.
I've always wanted to know about the arrows in tags.
Berries lift me out of my seasonal slump just like that.
I meant to take a picture of the berries that make me happy, but I ended up taking a picture of the house. The picture makes me feel a little creepy, and I kind of like it.
Mindy and the horse I pass every day I go to Café Noir. Mindy peed on it.
"You're coming too, right?"
Enjoy the week! Happy Valentines day.
