Last night I made bananabread. It was nice to determine that my gas oven indeed does function, and it's been so long since I've baked something it was quite the little adventure. Yes, when you are in assignment hell, it's the small things that count. Like my breakfast arrangement this morning; slightly overcooked egg, avocado on crisp bread on top of goat's cheese sprinkled with cumin. And freshly made coffee. Purks of writing at home.
