March 2: I've been craving Asian food lately. I made "Asian dumpling soup with edamame and shiitake" tonight. Only I forgot to buy edamame and I couldn't find watercress so I substituted spinach. It was still yummy.
March 3: We're going to have to get Diesel into better shape. We took a little longer walk today (about 20 minutes) and the last 2 blocks he kept looking back at me with his tongue hanging out like "are we done yet?!" The good news is he's doing so much better on the leash. I never realized how many dogs there are in my neighborhood until I started walking him and getting barked at from every angle.
March 4: You may have to blow up the picture to see all the smudges but this is from inside the backseat of the car looking out. Diesel loves riding in the car. I took him along on errands tonight.
March 5: I don't know if he gets excited when he realizes I'm home for the day or if this is from the mailman dropping off the mail, but every day the front door rug is a crumpled pile.
March 6: Matt's birthday party was tonight. Over an hour of about 30 of us sharing funny stories about him. He'd like you to think he's a jerk but just listen in and it's pretty easy to see why we all count ourselves lucky to be his friend. I made a dessert to share at the party: tarte tatin (apple tart).
