kaberett: Toph making a rock angel (toph-rockangel)

1. Excellent dinner: English asparagus on lightly-toasted Interesting Bread, with a brilliantly zingy and citrusy home-fermented goats' cheese; followed by more of the toast with olive oil + garlic, and salad bits. Dessert, eventually, was pear-and-plum crumble (star anise and vanilla in the fruit, cinnamon and hazelnut and oats in the crumble itself.)

2. I received a quotation for the wheelchair repairs currently ongoing; they're somewhere under half of what I was bracing myself for, which is a great relief.

3. Excellent lunch with a good friend in a small friendly deli in South London. I was particularly intrigued by (but alas did not sample) the tiny gluten-free strawberry-and-elderflower cheesecake.

4. The trip to and from same: a beautiful cherry-blossom mural on a building's front wall; a garden riotous with poppies somewhere between bud and full bloom; irises and weird little fuzzy orange things and colours everywhere.

5. Physio, on the train to and from, and reading books with it: still working on Hope In The Dark, but I'm about halfway through now and then I'll move on to Hugo reading.

6. I dyed A's hair again last night, and am pleased with the result. (It is all-over red, because red seems to wash out of his hair more quickly than blue, in the interests of i. checking whether the new red is actually a red and ii. getting it to a state where I can actually try putting a rainbow in it with minimal rebleaching of previously-bleached hair. In fact, because this means I put a lot of red on over blue, he's got what is in essence a red-into-deep-purple ombre going on, with a darker red layer on top and a lighter red layer underneath.)

7. I am delighted by the conversation that's going on in comments over at the enchilada recipe. Thank you, folk, I keep cackling with delight. <3

8. I continue chipping away at the paper, and spotting all the tricks my brain is trying to play on me, and thinking about things and spotting possible problems and addressing them. I am really very pleased with the progress this represents.

9. I am continuing to sincerely enjoy Pokemon Go.

10. Chelsea Manning.

Wow! I mean better not to need to pay it, but that's way better than I was imagining.

I only found out about Chelsea Manning a few minutes ago and I am a-glee. What a boss.

Yay for the wheelchair repairs being cheaper than expected! And that dinner sounds excellent! If you like asparagus, have you tried asparagus pesto? It is very nom.

I saw your lightly toasted interesting bread, and stopped and went and made myself lunch-bread. Well, mixed it, anyway. It never occurs to me to do this for just-me, especially not bread-timing ahead of a meal. Thank you.
