Gettin’ Beachy

I am very much procrastining going to the bakery to make bagel dough for tomorrow, so instead I will write this post for your enjoyment.  Well, I will probably start it and not finish it, but that will still allow me to procrastinate so it works for me!  It’s 4pm on Monday Sept 7 and […]

Musings from the USA

Hello! It’s been a hot minute since I have checked in but that’s because I have been doing a whole lot of not much and so I feel like I really have nothing to say, but my favorite posts to look back and stalk myself are the ones where I talk about all the “nothing” […]

Granola and Peaches

Fase 2, Mac and Cheese, and More

Hello there!  How are you?  I hope this Monday finds you well.  If you are in Madrid, then happy Fase 2 Day!  Yes, we are officially in phase 2 of this quarantine bs (I mean that in an “I am over this” sort of way, but I also know that it is (somewhat) necessary).  Anyway, […]

We Are in Fase 1

Dad, are your spelling sirens going off from that title?! For anyone else reading, I am well aware that fase is spelled with a ph, but in spanish, it is spelled with and ‘f’ so *insert tongue-sticking-out emoji*. Hello there!  I am coming to you bright and early (9 am) already showered, dressed, breakfasted, and […]
