This isn't Burger King, you can't have it your way.
A promising beginning, and then came the amateur’s ganache. (This cake is insane no matter how bad I’ve made it look.) (Smitten Kitchen’s orange chocolate chunk cake.) #saturdaycake #bundtdayfundtday #nordicware
Morning commute, now with an added ten seconds of intensified awareness of my mortality!
The poky sculpture outside my office is exactly the right size and quietness for a hummingbird nest, please tell all your hummingbird friends.
1. We have this gorgeous thing in the driveway for the weekend. I have it half-filled already. It smells like it spent some time down at the harbor. It smells like old crabs, to be precise.
2. Found these in the back yard covered in leaves and spiders, in case you were wondering where *that* dream died.
1. Portrait of a bunch of people who had babies 18 years ago.
2. Life is a group effort.
3. I told Jack to open his eyes.
4. Happiness and relief.
Jacaranda time! #jacaranda #time
Uh, walk of shame?
Richard, why are you like this? #caturday
#tbt Palm Springs 1995, drunk in my future mother-in-law’s living room. I wish I still had that Zubin Mehta t-shirt.
My contribution to the potluck (Smitten Kitchen’s confetti cookies, even thought I ran out of confetti). #measuretwicecutonce #tastyaf
Friends again. For a minute. #tunawater #caturday
Why yes, I *did* spend Tuesday dressed like the headmistress of a school with cold showers and four years of compulsory German grammar. But every year on your birthday you get a whole Black Forest cake all to yourself. #toughbutfair #uniqlojacket #onzietights #needahaircut
“Sex act”? I know we’re all supposed to know they mean penis in vagina, that there are no other “real” sex acts, that’s the only one. The penis must be appeased, there’s only one place it can ejaculate! Females, we’re going to make a law that you have to comply! Jesus, these people. Go cut a hole in a watermelon, Cletus.
This weekend’s cake: Smitten Kitchen’s double chocolate layer cake required me to fine chop a pound of chocolate, and taught me that if you want to be an Instagram Influencer you should trim your cake sides flat before you dump icing over the top. #saturdaycake #wouldyoulikeasliceofheartfailure #uglycake
Cassie reclaimed her time in the chair so Willy stuffed himself into the cat bed.
Smitten Kitchen’s espresso chiffon cake with fudge frosting. It’s not going to win any beauty contests, but it’s the first cake I’ve ever made that didn’t come from a box mix. Have a great weekend! #bakedit #ateit #metabolizeditsomehow
April took a turn when I spent almost a third of it sick in bed watching The Great British Baking Show. #1secondeveryday
Willy is such a Beta. #littledogsarehilarious
Rainy day cuddle.
It got cold all of a sudden.
I made a pillow fort.
Peewee is eight today! ❤️🍰❤️🍰❤️
Happy 8th birthday, Peewee! All the hugs belong to you today. ❤️😍❤️🍰❤️
Peewee doesn't understand why someone would gently sprinkle confetti all over his head. #fiesta #santabarbara
Feeling a little fragile today, Dr. Russell took 3.2 liters of fluid out of Peewee's abdomen this morning. His heart's gotten weaker but he's still a good boy. Thinking good thoughts as he rounds the corner towards his eighth birthday!
Not happy about this new "kibble only" situation.
I'm hiding from the sun!
It's important to groom your balls.
Mom why is he sitting on me.
The first thing I like to do in the morning is go back to bed.
