Tonight I made a delicious dinner (which you’ll get the recipe for on Sunday) and invited my buddy Nyberg over to share it with us. I also had her take some of the beer that’s left in the fridge from when my dad visited (much less consumption around here these days), and so she’s pouring my favorite summer brew up there (Shiner’s Ruby Redbird). Yesterday I featured doughnuts and today it’s beer! It’s like I’m aiming this blog at Homer Simpson!
Anyway, I’m also giving you a second image because while I was cooking said dinner, I got a new bird on the bird feeder! A WOODPECKER! A female hairy woodpecker to be exact (and yeah, that totally sounds dirty, right? But that’s the official name, I swear). You can see one from a better angle here. This shot below was the best I could do while using the lenses that I had on hand for food photography. Aren’t they pretty?
And again today, I have a few internet shares for you. I’m heading out of town this weekend, so I figure it’s ok to give you a lot now since you’ll be left high and dry come Saturday :) First off, Jenny Lewis’ new album is streaming over on NPR. I am soooo excited for this concert — I adore her music.
Second, have you seen this new train they’ve got over in Japan? FANCY. I would totally take that somewhere exotic.
Third, how about a new trailer for a Benedict Cumberbatch and Kiera Knightly film set during WWII?? Yes. I am super geeked about that.
