Happy Friday the 13th! This week, we planted some very late container vegetables and tried rather unsuccessfully to ply through the piles of laundry left in the wake of our vacay last week. Photos forthcoming (of vacation, not laundry)!
Mama and I are going to pick blueberries on Saturday and this pie is so totally happening.
Also on the agenda for this summer: making my own mustard. I might even try to get my hands on some mustard plants. I want to do this in the worst way and I cannot explain why I am so excited about it. Yay mustard!

My Plastic-Free Life: Midway Journey: A Personal Plea for Your Help
"Near the heart of the Pacific Ocean, Midway Island is one of the most remote places on Earth, and the iconic site of a world-changing naval battle. Today Midway is inhabited by a million Laysan albatrosses-- magnificent and beautiful seabirds who range over the entire Pacific from their home base on the island. Midway is a multi-layered kaleidoscope of natural wonder and human history, and it also serves as a powerful lens into a shocking environmental tragedy: tens of thousands of albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch."
