Friends! As you may have gathered from last week’s series of late posts (I did finally share that pasta, by the way), things here have been a little busy as of late. After spending the week living out of a backpack and eating takeout, in the name of helping bring this project to life, by Friday I was properly frazzled. And so I made grand plans for the weekend. Plans to spend time catching up on the things I’d been neglecting, like cooking and sleeping and paying my taxes.

Which is to say that I accomplished nothing that I set out to. But of course, I wouldn’t change a thing. Although, after yesterday’s breakfast of bread and lunch of carrot sticks, it may be time to start cooking again. And then there are those taxes…
