  1. Gahhh I haven't baked in too long... But I'm planning to make some crispy rosemary flatbread for dinner with friends tonight, and have been giving my lovely sourdough starter more attention this week after she was neglected in the fridge for a bit too long.

    I'm thinking I might finally try to make sourdough bagels this weekend...

  2. Happy Friday, all. Boy, am I ready for this weekend. This week has been nonstop and today is a deadline day (which I'm not in good shape for! Oops).

    But hey, at least I got myself what's hopefully a bit of good karma, as I saw someone biking drop their phone on the light rail tracks, and I stopped, picked it up, and chased the person down to give it back to them. They hadn't even noticed they dropped it! Don't bike with your phone in a loose pocket, people!

  3. I have clipless pedals (call them clip in and you're a rookie) and have never fallen with them getting stuck. But I have had a few close calls. I got used to them pretty quickly.

    They are a must have (read: huge help) if you plan on biking serious hills!

  4. Normally we do calling, but this year we have a friend coming to town tomorrow and another friend coming to town on Monday, both starting with us, so we'll likely be busy with them.

    Also, we have a shiny new gas grill that we're thinking we'll try out for a BBQ on Monday!

  5. The tomato plant is growing like crazy and has, I think, at least doubled in size since we got it 2.5 weeks ago. It has four little flowers buds already. 

    The pepper plant is growing much more slowly, but I expected this as it's goal is not to be as big. It is showing new growth though!

    And we just moved them to spots where they will actually get more sun, due to the arrangement of the little balcony we have them on being more shaded at one end than the other.

  6. Did Bay 2 Breakers yesterday! Slightly slower than years past, but I have NOT been good about my running routine this year. But hey, the 7 miles didn't feel so bad and my legs feel pretty good today, so I know that if I just make it a routine again, I could get back to decent splits again.

  7. Hah, I cancelled HBO this morning!

    Overall, I thought it was a decent ending. I also didn't mind the dragon burning the iron throne. I thought it didn't attack Jon because it knew he's also a Targaryen, and so wouldn't/couldn't blood of Dany, his mom.

    I thought the opening scenes with Tyrion walking through King's Landing and then discovering Jamie and Cersei were very powerful and showed again that he's a very good actor.

    I was happy to see Arya go west and Sansa become Queen of the North as well. And it was super cool to see how she did it. She definitely has the best character development of everyone.

    Jon returning to the Nightswatch is basically like everything coming full circle for him. And I thought everyone going beyond the wall with him was more symobolic of the fact that it's safe now. No more white walkers.
