Warm vs. Cool

It has been lovely here in Western Washington for the last few weeks. Nice cool mornings (in which to wear a sweater as you walk around the garden in the early morning light) and warm 70-ish afternoons (when you can walk the doggy and weed in a tank top). No bugs, low humidity... aaaahhhhh! I'm making a conscious effort to store up this lovely memory in order to make it through October-to-May.

Here is my pup's typical pose in the morning as I check my email and blog in our "new" office - curled up in the brown corduroy armchair, getting in his first nap of the day.

And the latest off the ice-cream maker? Rhubarb sorbet! OMG! I made it exactly as this recipe, with rhubarb from my bulging freezer. It was awesome! Quite tangy, like a lemon sorbet, if you (like I) enjoy that type of thing. And after searching other sorbet recipes on epicurious, I can see I'll be needing to step up my fitness routine soon...

I hear you Paula. I need to get enough warmth inside me to sling shot me to the other side of May. But being bug free and humidity free plus not having a high electricity bill due to no air condition is a plus. I won't mention about our heat being on for a few minutes each morning to break the chill. The sorbet looks so yummy. Almost like the color of cotton candy.
