I planted two Asian pear trees today. A New Century (1st photo) and a Hosui (2nd photo). They’re from Stark Bro’s. These may be the last fruit trees I ever plant.

We’re ending the year with disco fries. Everyone, have a good start to 2022.

One more photo of today’s aebleskiver making.

Aebleskiver day!

After a few years of iPhone night mode, high ISO photography (as high as 12800) with my X100V is pretty nice. I really can’t be bothered by the noise since the X100V results in most circumstances look way better than blotchy iPhone night mode.

Last night. Winter views like this make slogging through summer worth it.

As is annual tradition, made caramel the other day. Every batch is unique. Compared to last year, the caramels are harder but bolder in flavor.

Christmas Soup is a before Christmas tradition for us. Easy and so very tasty.

😬 this backgammon game ended more intensely than expected. I won 🙌

Has anyone figured out the rhyme or reason behind Fujifilm cameras expiring smart phone-provided location information via bluetooth? Location information expires in a few hours (I think) and the Fuji Cam Remote app + Camera do not reliably connect without user intervention.
