I spend a lot of time looking at plants up close.

Entering the Swamprose Macro Phase. Prepare to be annoyed.

All I need now are growing things, other than moss.

fridge blog

(viewed 1053 times)
okay. big fat north american fridge.

contains:
milk, orange juice, apples, carrots, orange peppers (on sale ,cheap these days)

top shelf has upside down maple butter, hummous, cream for risotto, bag of sprouted acorns

middle shelves: feta cheese, pesto, yoghurt, maple syrup, white bean miso, tikka masala sauce, lettuce, leftover jerk chicken, three jamaican patties, two eggplant, big tortillas for making quesadillas. vegie drawers have, guess what? vegetables.

door: butter, 8 hot sauces (favourite is cajun sunshine), ketchup, horseradish, blueberry juice, flax seed, salad dressings, different bbq sauces, tahini.

side view of fride is the typical mess of things stuck to a fridge: Che, the 'Yukon Song' from Calvin and Hobbes, the list of things to do when you are bored from mat's sister, tickets to Mano Chao in June, the Bloor Cinema schedule,phone numbers, a wedding invitation (oo next week, what do I wear?), a photo of Jane Jacobs (great writer on urban issues), list of top ten restaurants in Toronto, and just stuff.

no marmite. no stuffed animals. yet.

window hand for phobo

(viewed 1017 times)
P, you asked to see the real hand. The new ones are shiny and have lost some detail. I will bathe the new ones in acid to turn them black, but I miss the fine detail of the originals. Still a nice way to pull up my windows. That is whenever it stops snowing and gets warm...

boxful of hands

(viewed 641 times)
my house is old and falling apart. But it has some nice old things about it. One thing is that all the windows have tiny hands to pull on when you raise or lower the window. I took one to this store years ago to see if he had more. No. But he sent the original for casting, and now there are lots of hands raising windows. I needed 18. He gave them to me for free.
