Fresh, raw corn? REALLY FREAKING GOOD! But then I put it into the corn chowder soup I made for dinner, to which I also added some chorizo (among other things), leading to revelation #2: like bacon, but even moreso, adding chorizo to things just makes them better. So delicious, it mostly made up for various frustrating parts of my day.
 The fresh corn is from the CSA share that Em and I have been splitting. I really quite enjoy getting local produce from the farmer who actually grows it, even though the yields vary a bit from week to week, and it takes a bit of work to plan my meals around the random items that we get. I got my first local/organic/free-range meat share two weekends ago so that's another thing to plan around, too. My sources of protein this summer have largely been eggs and cheese (I go through about 8 oz. crumbled goat cheese and a dozen eggs week...) so reintroducing meat into it this week made me feel heavy.
Art classes update: have finished Basics of Interior Design and Kinetic Sculpture, attended a Natural Dyeing workshop, almost finished with Jewelry & Metalsmithing, and have started Beginning Wheelthrowing (pottery) and Batik. Wheelthrowing? IS REALLY HARD. I was sore all over the second day! But during the second lesson I actually threw a pot that was not lopsided! Nevermind that the bottom came off when I took it off the wheel because I made it too thin. That can be fixed, young grasshopper.
