It’s August. Let that sink in for a moment – we’ve successfully (or in some cases not so successfully) survived almost five months of sheltering in place. Adaptation is a skill, one that I’ve been pretty bad at in the past. But making it through five months of this new world order is no small feat and I think we should all congratulate ourselves.
Someone asked me the other day what things I like creating as an artist, and I responded that I liked to make things with my hands. Example A – little paper umbrellas. Very unnecessary and frivolous, but I felt a lot of pride in these tiny umbrellas, even though they are still a tad delicate despite some hot glue reinforcement. They passed the Oliver test, as in, he carried one around with him for the whole night. These umbrellas completed the adornments for Sam’s piña colada concoctions, which also included a pineapple wedge and pineapple leaf. The menu for that night included Japanese curry, tonkatsu, and poke seaweed chips. Yum!
Has this blog just become a record of the somewhat elaborate meals that Sam and I cook each weekend? Maybe.
