111. elm street.

 this map of europe was in my closet when i moved in.
i decided to continue the tradition.

so long, c-u

it took a last minute uhaul trailer to get everything out, but all is well.
nice to be home for a few days while i get ready for the trip.
lots of errands to run, laundry to wash, and people to hug.

110. freedom fries.

a happy 4th to all!
i'm celebrating my country by packing up my apartment and feeling sentimental/sweaty.

i've also set up a tumblr to use for all things mongolia, so this blog will be down for the summer after next week.
right now it features a few pictures and musical stylings as i get ready to depart.

109. fancy feast.

did i mention the food?
because oh my gosh the food.

 this cup housed club soda mixed with homemade ginger syrup.
chopping ginger made my fingers all tingly.

pictured: fresh baba ganoush, caprese skewers, tomato/olive tapenade on endive boats, and cake balls (that's balls 'o cake dipped in dark chocolate and covered in gold sugar sprinkles)

sorbet cake!

a big high five to robyn b., as usual

108. signs of the times.

last night was my going away party, hosted by lovely friend robyn.
we did some decorating of the apartment beforehand, complete with artwork following the themes of mongolia and 4th of july, with additions by friends.

107. july, july.

i went to work this morning, but the drive i needed to perform the essential functions of my job were still like, meh, we're gonna stay down again today even though you only have one more day of work after this. then my breakfast was moldy.
the universe was all: go back home for awhile, jc. it's nice there.

so i did. instant success!
there was a package waiting for me, i watched several episodes of veronica mars, exercised, and made some packing strides. i also took a walk this evening and it was breezy and warm.

and the people of the world were happy, and it was good.
