A Few Things I've Learned This Summer


There's nothing happier than a dog on a beach.



Fig newtons do figs absolutely no justice.


When chickens are hot, they breathe through their mouths. As Pearl and Maude demonstrate here, it makes them look like they're singing heavy metal ballads.


The key to making it rain for the first time in weeks is to leave your laundry on the line over night.


Even vintage appliances are put to work in dire circumstances.


Cat tails are edible. For reals!


It's pretty great being me. Thanks, summer.

According to these recipes... pretty much any way you want. I have concluded that you need to make me cattail pollen biscuits when you come to visit.

I'll take the fresh figs over the cattails... so fun to see what you're up to. Keep up the good work!
