    Baking is so satisfying…
    Basil’s leg is all healed up. He had a full-leg cast for 3 weeks and a boot for another 3 weeks. Now it’s like it never happened. Frankly, he mostly acted like it didn’t happen while it was happening – he didn’t seem to mind much.
    Are you at Harvard or something? I’m interested on your life’s twists and turns.
