One good thing about this constant rain: there are blooms everywhere.


Every yard seems to have at least one lilac bush, some have a whole hedge.


They are mostly these pale purple ones, my favorite.


But we have this dark purple one.


It’s pretty, too.


There are a few white ones as well.


I used to think lilacs were a bit granny-ish, but nope, they are beautiful.

New Pots and Pans


Isn’t that exciting! Ha-ha. But it is very exciting for me.

It just feels so fancy to have new pots and pans, instead of hand-me-downs. Almost like an adult.

We’ve been talking about buying some new ones, since our old ones are indeed old, probably from the eighties, and they are pretty beat up and the handles are falling of.

I was reading the newspaper on my lunch break at work and saw that Iittala had the very pots I’d been eyeing on sale for 30% off. Iiiih. I send Jake who was at home a message to look up their website. He did.

“Which ones should I get?”

“Hmm, let me think…”

“No, I bought them all.”

There’s a guy who hates indecisiveness. So now we have the whole set of five.


So shiny.

I just love them. They are so pretty! I like the glass lids, so you can see what’s happening without lifting the lid. And there’s that tiny hole that let’s the steam out. And best of all you can wash them in the dishwasher. Hooray!
