a reminder that it is spring

My body thinks winter’s on the way. I left for South America in late November, and I could feel my shoulders curving into the stooped posture of wintry wind even as I was landing in 80 degree Lima. I left South America in late April, just as my short jacket and long underwear started to fail in the post-autumn freeze. I’ve deferred two winters now, and my body disbelieves even the sunniest day. I spent today reading a Murakami book in which the rain lashes down incessantly and I had to read it under flannel sheets. Even wrapped up to my chin, I still was cold. Finally I got up and got dressed. To my great shock, when I looked outside it was spring.


I made some cupcakes to annoint with sugar flowers. My gum paste is improving, but I have to point out how fake my flowers look next to the real thing. I’ve got a ways to go.

Keep at the gum paste – it’ll get better, I promise! You’re already ahead of the pack; you should be pleased with your work.
