Black and orange bunnies, get it?
I made a batch of my chewy yogurt oatmeal cookies with a twist. I added a little bit of spice to the cookies. Some nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. I also made them tiny. It’s just this thing I do. :)
I’m really loving the texture on these. I added another 1/2 cup of flour to them to help them hold their shape better as well. The puffy little cookies give me such pleasure.
I can’t remember if I have written about Uwajimaya before. It is a delightful Japanese grocery store, but they also have a small bookstore. I like to look for fun knitting and tatting books, but I browse through the rest of the store too.
On this trip I took a picture of the Palty girls. They are so creepy and yet fascinating. Are they the same girl in different wigs? Or all different girls who really look alike?
I was also excited to find the boba balls. I love these silly things.
And if you like bubble tea, you can find the makings there too.
I quite like Uwajimaya.
It was with some trepidation that the I began my latest sock hunt. The socks were becoming rather wily as summer faded into autumn. My favorite haunts were yielding fewer and fewer specimens. I thought that I might come back from this hunt with a rather slim bag of shots.
There is nothing more frustrating than finding no socks when on a hunt. Though finding the socks, only to miss your shot, does come in a close second in frustration. I began to beat about the bushes, searching here and there. I was really hoping to flush some socks just to prove that they were still around.
Finally, I decided to turn my feet towards more urban areas and see if some more common socks might be found. After some time, the flicker of a heel caught my eye. With zeal, I began my pursuit and finally cornered the *Floral Striped Socks.
A few shots later and I was presented with something for my efforts. The day was not wasted. Until next time, this is your Sock Hunter, signing off.

Are fighting over the feeder again. It’s my daily soap opera. I eat breakfast and watch the hummingbirds fight over the sugar water. I eat lunch and watch the hummingbirds fight over the sugar water. I walk by the window and, well, you see where I’m going with this.
I never knew how much entertainment I would receive from a little hummingbird feeder and some sugar water.
