What do we do about people who put their own convenience over the need for compassion for those not equally able? Nearly every morning at school drop off, I see able folks (no disability stickers) parking in our school's disabled car parks, often for 5-10 min... There're other spaces available not far away.

Latest batch of sourdough. This one has quinoa flour and carroway seeds in it...

Despite feeling rough today, I had to make good on my sourdough bargain (initiated yesterday by making dough) and now I can recuperate with yummy fresh bread, carroway + barley flour + strong wheat flour. And enigmatically named "fruit" (but quite lush - a bit of banana in there?) jam from the Indian grocery....

And, with a quick trip through the flooding to Hornby to collect the crucial bracket, we now have more cowbell. Thank goodness!

One advantage to working from home is that, instead of being strung out from commuting & adding disproportionately to our carbon deficit, I get to do stuff like this before work from time to time...

Also, yesterday on our morning walk, noticed this little spot along the road near our house... How cool is that?!

Testing image upload with a late afternoon photo of our broken (due to ) Catholic cathedral here in Christchurch...

It's such a delight having such a well adjusted, easy going, smart, playful, loving, and obedient dog, who plays well with everyone, large or small. Lots of hair though.

Today: first baby steps in a long journey towards a perfect sourdough focaccia... Too bad we left our burgeoning rosemary bush behind at our old house...

Oops, meant to post from this account. Here's a picture if my resurrected MB-5...

A brooding morning over Christchurch for the national memorial and demonstration of solidarity for those affected by our recent terrorist attack.
