The gusty winds roamed the Bay Area last night, rattling and shaking outdoor things with abandon. It felt like a suitable end to a week that has had me struggling to find the right words to convey all my feelings.
My grandmother passed away in Singapore last week, her funeral was on Sunday. I wrote about some of my memories of her and thought about her as we finally made it through the week.
Some other things we did…
7yo’s craft in Chinese. It’s a bowl of longevity noodles and the ingredients he would want in it. He later had to write a paragraph about that.

Also, with the family, Long Way Up which has Ewan MacGregor and Charley Boorman back together again, this time on electric motorcycles, and the rest of the team in electric trucks, travelling up South America.

Eating and drinking:
I had toast and tea for breakfast. It’s a nice chilly morning, so I’m going to make more tea.
The husband’s birthday is this weekend so I’ve been thinking of what to cook. Steak maybe? A risotto with scallops? Both?
But for sure I will be making Black Forest cake.
