chocolate experiment

This evening I tried vegan cherry-flavored chocolate made by Endangered Species brand–it’s got a picture of a koala on the front. It’s so delicious. I also tired vegan dark chocolate Sunspire brand with puffed wild rice in it, and that was great too, but maybe too subtle for me–I mean, the puffed wild rice was […]

arrival

Erik’s new mechanical pencils came in the mail today. He likes them very much. I asked him to show me all of his pencils, and we enjoyed looking at them, talking about which he likes best, comparing grips, how the nibs retract, etc. Then he wanted to see my pens, and I showed him all […]

Bay Area Free Book Exchange

Lucky for us, the Bay Area Free Book Exchange had good signs up, so we were able to find the place having forgotten to write down the address. I enjoyed looking through all the books. They were unsorted, though there were category words taped to the shelves. There was no poetry section, unfortunately. Oh, well, […]
