Spotted this particularly tree-shaped tree outside @tigardpubliclibrary today. 🌲

The new mural in downtown Tigard is stunning! Photos don’t do it justice.

★ Liked “A father knitted his baby’s first year of sleep pattern data into a blanket - The Verge

This gives me too many ideas about knitting patterns, and I lack the skill. 🧶

Perfect comfort tea: Campfire S’mores. ☕️

This catchy song is helping me practice my friends’ pronouns. 🏳️‍🌈

Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen and some ink tests.

My furry heart. 🥰

Cygnoir and Zen cuddling

Stash discontinued Power Breakfast, but I have a few bags left. Thanks, past-me for being a tea hoarder! ☕️👍

Canoeing on the Deschutes River. 🛶😍

High desert and Cascades on the way to Sunriver. I’ve never been in Central Oregon before!

Lady Lilith on Independence Day. (Not my kitten, sadly!)

Fish tacos with charred corn salsa, guacamole, and chipotle mayo.

Yuba lettuce cups with avocado, snap peas, and goji berries.

I am irritatingly optimistic and an avowed believer in the United Federation of Planets, but my favorite books to read will always involve post-apocalyptic dystopias or creepy robots in space. Or both. So hit me up with your recs! I want to make sure I’ve read them all. 📚

Woke up from a dream in which I was showing off to some library patrons by naming all of the daytime soap operas that aired in the ‘80s. Don’t worry: I’m clear this was a weird flex AND NOT okay. 🤦‍♀️

It is still hard for me to wrap my head around this, but here goes: Monday marked my first day as the director of my library. I’m thrilled, nervous, humbled, confused, confident, and pretty much every other emotion ever. Wish me luck!

Golden raspberries are ready to be eaten. I tested them for you. You’re welcome!

A ghost spider hitched a ride. 👻🕷 Not a great shot, but it was a pale green that reminded me of glow-in-the-dark toys.

What a day! 🍳 Breakfast with writer pals 📚 Grand reopening of Garden Home Community Library 🏢 Moved into my new office 🎉 Helped with the teens’ after-hours party 🍽 Enjoyed Thai dinner with FunkyPlaid 🚲 Got home just as thousands of World Naked Bike Riders were passing by

Happy hour at the new game bar in downtown Tigard! 🍻🎲 Codenames is such a great game.

What a lovely evening at Just Compassion’s Supper in the ‘Burbs event!

Happy Caturday from Zen!

Home after a surreal visit to a country where I fumble the language but still it showed me beauty and grace and didn’t try to kill me, not even once, and although I’m jet-lagged and irritated about Brexit and xenophobia at least there’s a new Halou song.

Posted @withrepost • @funkyplaidseye A rapturous moment of swooning over a head-sized crème brûlée at L’Estaminet in Ste-Marie-du-Mont. We are by now surely made entirely of dairy.
