Around These Parts

This baby turned four yesterday. How’s that for a shocker?

Our celebration included a trip to the farmer’s market, where we bought local honey, fiendishly hot salsa, and a gorgeous loaf of cinnamon-apple-walnut bread.

Rilla’s favorite sight: the sea urchins at the fishmonger’s booth.


My favorite sight: this guy’s suitcase drum.


For dinner (stop the presses) I actually cooked! As in, really really cooked, with chopping and browning and basting and everything. Came out yummy, too: Chicken in Prune Butter Sauce.

I have lots to say about things I’m reading, but for now it’s full steam ahead on my Downton Abbey recap, which will go up at GeekMom later this morning. (Here’s last week’s.) Join us for the open thread if you like!
