Upon inspecting the contents of the freezer, I found that we still had a few small containers of frozen berries from last summer- some raspberries and some strawberries. Time to use those up, with all the fresh ones coming on! I didn't have enough to make a dessert on their own, but some fresh rhubarb from the front yard added enough critical mass for a cobbler!
It was so nice to bake something! I don't think I've done that since spring break at the end of March. And also, it was delicious and disappeared very quickly!
On Saturday we celebrated my new found freedom from school by heading to the coast for the day. The surf was up at Pacific City, but I didn't feel like getting in the water- I was looking forward to just laying around in the sun- and it was gorgeous out. So while Matt surfed for four hours, I relaxed and got fairly sunburnt, despite multiple applications of sunscreen and a strange ethereal fog that hung over the water, moving in and out and up and down, veiling the massive sea stack that is Pacific City's icon.
Berries on the beach!
Getting a start on my summer reading.
