200 oven.cooked chickpeas mixed with some oil, some spice (cumin,paprika,coriander,celery seed,cinnamon whatever) bake 20 minutes or until a little crunchy.yum!


postalco x kiosk

until 26th june kiosk visits postalco.once upon a time i found these interviews with the owners of both shops.have a look.really inspiring ♡. it was so very hard for me to not buy the suprise ball.


and completely unrelated, today hana and i were caught in very heavy rain on my bike.made me realise how little shelter there is from my house to nakameguro, apart from the train bridge.but it was getting boring waiting we got so drenched.i was lucky to be able to see.and luckily i got a plastic bag from one of the shops i went to which i could use to wrap the library books in.all 11 of them.i know there are 11 because the librarian pointed that out to me.i had a dreadful time at the city hall.apart from meeting an adorable old lady who was so excited hana could tell her she was 3.apart from that i completely embarrased myself with language miscommunications and it seems as my new passport now lists my middle name unlike my old one, i am not really here.hahahahahaha.
tomorrow i am meeting old friends from a little excited a little nervous.
today i made friends on facebook with a boy i liked when i was 14.he used to skateboard past my house.then i moved away.he accepted my friend request but didnt know who i was and asked me to jog his i did.facebook is a strange world.i made biscotti again this afternoon.theyre not so good.i decided to freestyle it and theyre bland.wish i could wet them and add some spice and bake again.and i finally found a firm firm so happy about if i could find a futon that stays soft.


1:11am and missing home.not tired at all.hanas latest is having me talk in different characters all day.kind of same strange accent but different names.fran is her favourite.i put the letter v in front of most words.hana is definately in need of a bigger family.


view from kitchen window late at night.much better than daytime view of occasional internet obscenities.must say though they have a Daisaku Chou chair in their other window,obviously unused, that im hoping they put out in hard rubbish.
compost man picked us some berries.he is so sweet.



hana played dressups there today.when did she get so big?


free dill flowers this weekend.

fresh off the vine (truck) organic broad beans,mmmm.hanas job to pop them out.


kyabram glitter.

tonight i only wanted to be in this mint coloured paper bag.look at those beautiful shapes and layers.tomorrow i will stick it to the window.

today a cuckoo bird visited our park and cuckooed all day.with short intervals.but not hourly.or 15 minutely.i hope it stays and wakes us again tomorrow.i heard it hasnt been heard at the park for 30 years.



things to be happy about.

bunch of dill flowers from sunday organic vegie van that parks just near my house.
wisteria putting on a show.

hammocks and hammock bike in nearby park to play with
very good crepe and a daughter to teach me to draw.
