"If they have them, get yourself one or more Bini bakery honey twists, in the fresh baked good section in the produce aisle. They're like the Big Man himself came down and said to man, 'No no no! You're getting this donut thing all wrong! THIS is what I had in mind!'"

- quote from a yelp review of a Korean grocery store by me.

I honestly don't know how I landed up on this page, nor why that quote actually pasted itself into this message. Strange things happen in Internet Explorer I guess. Its a grey and wet day outside, the kind that arrives at the tail end of summer and reminds you there are cold days ahead. I cleaned out some canning jars and am determined to pickle the cucumbers I have in my fridge. Much more preferable to actually eating a bucket size portion of cucumbers. No matter that I love them, this will just go really well with my sandwiches and burgers in the future. I've also got a bunch of tomatoes from farm and garden, which I'll make into pasta sauce. Nick's mom taught me how to make her sugo (sauce), and she's as italian as you can get.

I love the sound of the raindrops falling on tree leaves outside, with the cool air drifting in the lightly opened windows. It's pretty warm in the apartment, quiet, and the churchbells toll on the hour reminds me that it's already pretty late in the morning. I stayed up too late last night writing. Today I plan on drawing in my new sketchbook, found in a wonderful unexpected sale at the artstore. I miss drawing on paper sometimes, but its much more economical to draw and color digitally.
