Jim took Shiloh to the oncologist the other day so I could go to the library downtown and do some research for new design projects. I love the downtown Portland library:
It was overcast and puddly out, with drifting leaves, a perfect autumn day. After a few hours looking at books and old photos, I walked over to Flying Elephant's for a lovely lunch of their famous tomato-orange soup.
I got carried away by the fabulous exotic chocolates they were selling there and bought a handful of bars from Theo, the "first roaster of certified fair-trade organic cocoa beans in the US." And look how cute the labels are! I tried the coconut-curry bar, and let me tell you: Yum! And it's really curry-y and spicy!
After that, a few of my other favorite errands: Powell's, and Utrecht art store, with a brief pass through Anthropologie and Whole Foods, where I picked up some roasted vegetables and stuff for dinner. Here's a picture of that neighborhood:
And lastly, here's a picture of Shiloh in the car on the way to the oncologist.
She has one week of treatments left and she seems to be doing great! However, she has decided that she wants to be hand-fed now. OR. . . fork-fed. That's right. Jim figured that one out. Shiloh likes to eat off a fork! I put food in her bowl this evening and held the bowl right out to her, and she would not eat from it, but stared at the fork in my hand and would only eat when I fed her bite by bite with the FORK. How silly is that?
