Meanwhile…August 31, 2015

I’m not sure what just happened. It’s the last day of August, and I still haven’t made Johnnycakes or coffee milk. Tomorrow, I keep telling myself. Tomorrow. And I suppose that since tomorrow is September, it’s time to get my ingredients lined up and my whisk back on the road.

Until then, here are a few of the things I did instead:

Played “Donkey Kong Country” while this cat took a nap on my lap. Her name is Beatrice, she’s 19, she’s blind, and if she wants to take long naps on my lap I’m going to let her.
