Happy June Day. A bit cloudy today but happy that the temperature is above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The ground is overrun by weeds. The urge to pull them out from the ground battles the urge to relax and enjoy tea. Oh well, time to refill my cup.
Tomorrow the fall season begins. The neighborhood children have gone back to school. Daylight is getting shorter as dusk approach sooner everyday. The other evening we enjoyed one of the first harbinger of fall, the matsutake mushroom. I neglected to take a picture of the Dobin Mushi, matsutake soup, which means I just have to have another to get a picture to share with you.
Today, July 8, 2011, only one subject could be in the “Picture of the Day”. Shuttle Atlantis left for space for the last time. No I wasn’t one of the many who watched in person but the TV is glued to Nasa TV channel. I like hearing the intermittent updates from mission control as the shuttle go through the different phases of their flight. Amazing!
My previous post is stamped July 8, a day earlier from my time. How did that happen? Other posts made from my cellphone had the correct day. Wonder what changed?
What day will this post be stamped with? Lets find out. Today is July 7, 2011.
“Ba ba black sheep have you any wool” a little boy sang over and over while I was at the grocery store earlier today. Now it’s repeatedly playing in my head. Ergo the picture choice for today.
I haven’t known this kind of goodness long. I have come across many versions of tres leches cakes before. Usually they tended to be too sweet for my taste. But this one came dangerously close to being devoured before being digitally preserved. Thankfully I remembered to take the picture after the first bite.
As we went for an early breakfast the other day, we learned of a celebration in a nearby town. We decided to have a look found lots of shiny things!
Thank God for the sun and the warmth is here again. Enjoying the lovely flowers it brings. Mountain laurel blooms.
I’ve always been intrigued by flowering teas. Tried one for the first time the other day. It was a white tea with jasmine. The fragrance was fabulous but the flavor too mild for my liking.
