boredom is a luxury

Office work is getting more stressful by the hour, and most of my creative projects are on hold this weekend. I'm preparing for festivals which means printing, cutting, folding, stamping and the like--no time to develop my calendar, take naps or read except before slumber. Craft fair season is upon us!
Here are the things I did have time for today:

Walk around the neighborhood/downtown SB...(are these giant figs? who in their right mind would let them go to waste like this?)

Candle light is the best way to read in bed; I'm glad I learned this in my youth...

I made arroz con leche sans dairy with cinnamon and a touch of cardamom.

botanical diversity provides such beauty in the green-dominated canopy

oh the places you'll go! I redacted this list late one night this week, off the top of my drowsy head...

And finally, I made my first loaf of bread! (recipe here) This photo is of the dough after 20+ minutes of kneading... I later added sundried tomatoes and basil in a swirl. It was good, but I definitely need more practice before I move out to the country

Hopefully I'll have more images of my calendar project progress soon... I'm really eager to work on it but simply haven't found a good chunk of time to sit and dive in.
