July 23rd

Dear July,
Things that made me happy today:
1. Riding my bike to the markets and meeting up with Jane and Kylie. Wandering around the market and buying vegetables. Taking a chance on strange things. Having stacks of vegetables in the fridge for the first time in a while.
2. Doing house work with boyfriend, pottering around the house together. Putting out washing in the sun, sweeping the floor. Fitting around each other, like it’s no big deal.
3. Playing around with the black radishes I bought at the market. Contemplating forthcoming blog about cooking black radishes aka a pointless blog because who even buys black radishes.
4. Cooking vegetarian schnitzels from scratch and having them with (radish) mash and sprouts, mainly because I wanted schnitzel but did not want to go buy schnitzel. But it turned out pretty good and I might experiment and make the recipe (semi-improvised) better.
5. Boyfriend making me icecream with sprinkles and bringing it up to bed.
