Clem Diaries 01.May.2016: from beavers to drum battles

Clem Diaries: A roundup of links to things I've done, made, cooked, eaten, bought, loved, or viewed lately.

I hope you're all being deliciously lazy on this fine lazy Sunday. I'm being spectacularly unlazy and walking 5k for charity. Woo!

In no particular order, here is my life in links.

My hometown has gotten some hilarious internet cred for a beaver walking into a pizzeria... How Canadian!

I want to swaddle up all of my hot bevvies in these mason jar cozies from Refluff.

If you're a bookworm or need to get a bookworm a gift, these surprise packs of bookmarks from Crafted Van are a very good idea.

I've been reading Second Nature: A Gardener's Education and it's making me impatient to get my garden going.

I am still glowing over the success of my homemade sourdough using the Kitchn recipe.

These pumpkin pancakes from Minimalist Baker are pretty much my favourite reason for Sundays.

I am a wee bit obsessed with cauliflower lately, and this cauliflower lentil curry was pretty amazing.

This Moroccan-style chickpea soup is one of my favourite spring-ish soup recipes.

This Dave Grohl vs Animal drum battle feels like a metaphor for the competing priorities inside my head lately. Also, it's just great.

Have you lived anything worth linking lately?

  1. I have fallen off the social media wagon, so while I am living my life there is actually not technological proof of it. Weird. But interesting feeling. On that note, I should really get my act together and back into the sharing world! Congrats on the 5k walk, hope it was all sunshine. And please send me some of that sourdough so I can stop drooling on my laptop....


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them all and will reply when I can.
