It's Monday. It's cold and windy and generally a day where I would like to curl up with a book and coffee. Alas that is not in the cards. Huck and I have kept ourselves busy with cooking and Ollie has been building cool cars out of legos that mustn't be touch while he's at school.
After of weekend of highs (the women's march in Boston) and lows (the Donald is now mr. president). I'm donning my fuzzy socks, cooking warm meals and getting ready to participate in the women's march 10 actions/100 days (https://www.womensmarch.com/).
Because those two boys deserve better. We all deserve better.
Lots of character to go around in this house.
Oliver is my rock climbing, skiing, ballet dancing rock star. He continues to impress me with his ability to embrace the unknown and go against the grain. He of course also wants, yearns to be in the cool group but I admire his ability to stay true to his truest self no matter what.
Huck has a lot to say these days. A lot. He is constantly chatting. Expressing opinions.
We have been settling back into our routines of school, work, and sleeping in our own beds. And although at times I yearn for the spontaneity of travel and living with a limited wardrobe, I am also so happy to be home. In our house. In our neighborhood. Surrounded by the expected comfort of the everyday.
Los Angeles. Santa Monica Pier. LAX.
Setting up for another year of pictures. Of course I have aspirations of shooting all my images this year on my big girl digital camera or heck even shoot all film or Polaroids. But alas, the phone lives in my pocket, my bag, my car. It's there. It's easy. It's what I know I will use in a pinch. So here's to another year of weekly images to watch my boys grow and change.
Delicious red orbs filled with juicy, sweet, tart arils that can be stubborn to extract from its smooth red exterior. I've tried the cut open and smack the back with a spoon method. I've tried the cut it open and extract the seeds under water method. I've tried the hack into four sections and pop out the seeds all over your kitchen method. Most of these methods leave my hands stained for days and an puny amount of seeds to sprinkle on my yogurt or toss into a salad.
But fear no more. I have cracked the pomegranate code! Behold the video below shows you the way that you too can get all of the lovely, sweet and crunchy little seeds of love out of your pomegranate.
