right now: the dog days of summer

Right now, it’s all about: the hot summer grass, walks on the waterfront, spicy lemon cucumbers, homemade mint blossom syrup, just-picked oriental lilies perfuming the house, new notebooks, My Japanese Table, golden mushroom soup with mung bean noodles, a young hen’s first eggs, one perfect poached egg, lavender soda water from Frog N Kiwi, a sweet Korean melon, cherry almond clafoutis, the lovely folks at Blue Lily Photo, a luscious gelato trio at The Pike, and finally, our return to the homestead to watch tiny little feet dancing in the spray of the water hose.
