Project 365 – Week 3

January 17, 2010 - Desiree

Desiree has been one of my best friends for nearly the last decade. We met up this afternoon at Flying Goat, which is pretty much my default meeting spot.

January 18, 2010 - Carrots in the Garden

There was a small pause in the rain this afternoon, so I went out to see the garden. We’ve had a great crop this year of all sorts of veggies, but our first batch of carrots didn’t turn out. Looks like these ones are ready to eat!

On the non-garden front, I had a great day, Elly and I met up for pupusas and clothes swaping and Katie and Amanda are over catching me up on Being Human.

January 19, 2010 - Mike

Mike had a bone marrow biopsy this morning in San Francisco and I asked if I could go with him. It was definitely not the most fun trip to the city that Mike and I have ever had, but the rain let up while we were there and the wearther was beautiful. On our way back home, we stopped at the rest stop on the North side of the bridge for a quick photo.

January 20, 2010 - Jon

This is photo 5/100 of my 100 friends project.

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen Jon playing in more than 50 shows over the years. He was in Black Box back in the day, and has been in Fall is Here the past few years. Jon loves comic books and always seems to be in a good mood. He keeps joking about busting out some dance moves when he plays, I seriously hope it happens because it would be epic.

January 21, 2010 - Lemon Poppyseed Cake

My mom emailed me this LA Times article about the history of my favorite chocolate cake in which the author experimented with a lemon-poppyseed variation on the recipe. Needless to say, my interest was peaked, so I made it tonight. The lemon poppyseed cake recipe is here.

January 22, 2010 - Ben and New Cat

Ben and Desirée took in the cat that’s been sleeping outside on their porch for the last few days. Temporarily dubbed either Roof Cat (for her habit of hanging out on their roof) or New Cat, she is the sweetest little kitten ever (excepting of course, Rahm, who wins at life).

January 23, 2010 - Brandi

This is photo 5/100 of my 100 Strangers project.

I met Brandi when I was taking a photo of the sunlight streaming through the empty columns. She asked if I needed her to move out of the way of my shot and instead I asked her if I could take her photo. It turns out that she was there to model for her photographer friend, who is also doing a 365 project, so it was great timing on my part!
