  1. UrbanMAX

    We’re off to do UrbanMAX this year. (I heard about it from Kris last year.) It’s sort of like doing The Amazing Race except just in our city. We have recruited a couple of people after our glowing tales from the last time. Hopefully we don’t get too sunburned. This is a little photo of us kayaking in shark-infested waters (aka the Brisbane River) last year.

  2. Making Coffee

    Two weeks ago, I noticed that the coffee tree out back was filled with bright red cherries. After a little bit of online research, I thought it might be fun to give homemade coffee processing a try. (In hindsight, “fun” is not the word I would actually use anymore.)

    You can see each stage of the process in my Flickr set. My thumbs are raw from taking off the parchment this afternoon. I hope to roast next weekend.
