Some good things lately

With G at a sex-workers collective benefit at Be Bar where we went to meet Christina after a satisfying and great SUGAR CANE ALLEY screening.

With Diane & Robyn at Sports Tavern before Andrea's screening at AIM.

August 1, 2008. Alina Octavia is born! This made Friday a GREAT day. I can not wait to smell her, for real...

Plus on Friday I found wonderful blueberries cheap and have been eating them ever since.

And on the way back from Assateague we stopped at a produce stand and I got some blackberries that were not quite sweet enough. So I made my first solo jam! Appropriate that it was blackberry ( I have very fond memories of picking blackberries and making jam in Rotenburg with Mama Lutosch...).

I even used one of her jars, one she gave me Apfelgelee in a couple years ago. Yum.

It didn't turn out great, but it looks good! And it was fun. Felt really good to just have a chill day at home and to be making food again finally.

Nzingha came over to enjoy it with me.

And then we met Giovanna for dessert.

Don't worry, there is a lot of dessert in Washington. There will be some left when you get here, I promise.

Or do you mean jam? There's a jar waiting for you!
