Buzz in a Cup

July 3, 2015

I did a poll to ask readers of the Dowser Series what cupcake Drake should eat in Maps, Artifacts, and Other Arcane Magic (Dowser 5).

Buzz in a Cup won.

ETA: as a noncoffee drinker I found these very strong, as a regular coffee drinker (who drinks his coffee black) Michael found these tasty, but not overly strong.

 Without further ado here is the recipe:

Dowser 5: synopsis

June 25, 2015

One treasure down, two to go …

Three months ago, I nearly lost my best friend while retrieving the first instrument of assassination. I also inadvertently released a rival who was definitely unhinged, way more powerful than me, and obsessed with harnessing the deadly power of the artifacts I’d been tasked by the guardian dragons to collect.

Add a sexy sentinel and a nearly immortal vampire to the mix, and what could possibly go wrong?

Knowing my luck, I was about to find out.

Leo hates his foot

June 15, 2015
tags:

I’m not a hundred percent sure why, but Leo appears to loathe his left foot this morning.

I’m not sure what his left foot has done to betray him, but I hope I never step out of line far enough to receive that withering glare.

In other news, Happy Monday!

Purple Mist organic pea flower. Sunset Drive garden – Spring 2015

The garden that comes with the house we’re renting on Salt Spring Island is easily five times bigger than the York Avenue urban garden in Vancouver where we planted for the last six years. We haven’t had the time to revitalize and plant all of the new garden, which appeared to have been neglected for at least two years. But, because we knew we had so much extra space, we decided to try some new ‘for fun’ varieties for 2015 including the Purple Mist Organic Peas from West Coast Seeds pictured above.

I snapped this picture over a week ago, so now there are deep purple pods where these flowers used to be. I’m guessing we will be taste testing these sometime next week. I’ll report back.
