Highlights of my week:

  • declaring a whole day for cooking and listening to good music.
  • making strawberry mango sorbet with lime (with mangos from my yard.)
  • eating said sorbet.
  • making mango fruit leather. yum.
  • exploring with critters in the backyard.
  • going to a birthday party for a 63-year-old manatee. 
  • seeing wild dolphins leap for joy right before my eyes.
