notes from arcadia

In which I chronicle my days and adventures through pictures and words.

Themes: art, cocktails & spirits, cooking, canning, growing vegetables, wine, music, running, need v.s. want, arrange, de-clutter, relationships.

Basically, more than the mundane, less than the extraordinary.

I’m fairly certain that’s the Casio keyboard I had in high school and  I’m really tempted to barter with this pawn shop for it.
