It’s Saturday morning (‘er – afternoon) and I’m at home! A nice surprise Saturday off. It’s drab outside with grey overcast skies, and dead grasses rustling in the chilly wind on the balcony. Even the cat is feeling it, trading her usual jaunt around the apartment for […]

King’s Hawaiian Rolls

Today I wish I was a cat. Our cat specifically. To lie around all day, eat, sleep, that’s all. To feel no shame in that whatsoever. I don’t know what it is about days off and free time that makes it flash by you like lightning, […]
