Several weeks ago Google+ silently changed the default sharing level on my #Project365 posts to "only me". It's fixed now, and I will add future #Project365 posts to my Project 365 collection: https://plus.google.com/collection/8N13SB

I know it isn’t the most efficient method, but I love running errands on foot. Today my errands brought me near this gorgeous park. I had the option of walking alongside it on a busy road or through it. Not really a choice, is it? Writing from: my study.…

I dusted off my dSLR camera and macro lens this evening. I’m very rusty but this petunia in our backyard met me more than halfway. Writing from: my study. Listening to: a boxing match on TV in the living-room.

Bet you didn’t know that cats take selfies. Zen was going for the “standing alone in a refurbished barn, counting my many #blessings (salmon and tuna)” look. I think it worked. Writing from: my study, where Zen is singeing her fur on the space-heater.…

Today a shark sent me a swan! It’s a chalkboard, so it’s lovely and functional. I can’t wait to hang it in my new study and chalk it up. Writing from: my study. Listening to: “Somewhere Tonight” by Beach House.

Alberto introduced me to Rose City Food Park today, and I was not disappointed. There are many delicious food carts there, but my choice this visit was clear: GF Chef, which offers gluten-free fried chicken and waffles and gravy-slathered biscuits. Just…

This insect crawled around on the deck long enough for me to run back inside and grab my dSLR and macro lens. I took many photos but without my tripod only a few were usable. My usual floral subjects don’t move around so much. Upon first glance, I assumed…

Sometimes when I am practicing calligraphy or just writing in my journal, I make a mistake and then add a little note with an arrow pointing to the error. I was absolutely tickled to discover one of these notes in the wild today. Writing from: my study.…

The scarf I am knitting is turning into a scarf! I am always slightly shocked when this happens, like it is a form of alchemy I shouldn’t be able to perform. Writing from: my study. Listening to: “New Person, Same Old Mistakes” by Tame Impala.

Simply put, this is my favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. The food, service, and ambience are all outstanding. Most dishes are naturally gluten-free -- a boon for those of us who have to worry about that sort of thing -- and the staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. Wonderful.

I cannot recommend Dolly & Mop highly enough! Laura is an absolute gem, and she has created a warm and lovely respite from the stressors of the world outside. I visit regularly to have my eyebrows shaped and my hair cut, and have never had anything less than an excellent experience here.
