berries stain your lips
I've been enjoying the summer a lot lately, mostly from my studio, but the windows are large and I've positioned the desks to face the view. The cat has made a path to crawl up and behind one of them, appearing behind my laptop and trying to sit on my typing hands. Not the best.
But summer means lots of good food - so please to enjoy our July of Good Eating
These delicious bits and lovely glassware were a gift from our dear friend, thanks, lady!

- dash of brown sugar
- skim milk - mix for frothiness
I miss BookOff! I wish there was one in Boston.
I've also gotten really serious about studying Japanese. When you plan something so far in advance, it suddenly hits you - "oh my goodness, I don't have a lot of time left before I have to use this stuff" so that's been happening recently. But languages are really fascinating!
Did you know there are Inuit dialects that are dying out? I read in the New Yorker that Eskimo languages are going extinct - and the writer went to the farthest reaches of Alaska to interview the last surviving speaker of a certain dialect and she kicked him off her property with a gun. Wow.
I should also be keeping up with my pigeon French from high school...
If you are looking to learn Japanese or other things - I would recommend Smart.FM - their methods have been really great so far!
