Tales from Nowhere (2nd ed. I believe, but I returned it so can't check) edited by Don George.
There were a number of great stories in here, Meeting Echo and A Visit to Kanasankatan were the standouts, the latter made me flip back to the beginning of the story and read it again with context... and I found so much more in it the second time. The former was quite relatable for me as I've spent a lot of time communicating with people I'll never see again in what little common language we have with added sign language.
Quite a few of the stories got a bit dry and tried to find deep meaning in a remote nowhere of a place, but none of the stories were actually bad, and it's a book worth reading if you like travel stories.

Orange Juice and Cookies )

This morning I finished off a book I borrowed for light reading - 'Spellbinder' by Helen Stringer. It wasn't bad and had some interesting ideas and decent pacing, though the deus ex machinas were a bit frequent and overly convenient.

Amy made fresh orange juice, which was delicious. I baked choconana muffins, which I must not have made in well over ten years, but thought of the other day so dug out the recipe. I also made two flavours of gluten-free cookies; apricot and almond, and date.

I also played netball, which was fun (as it generally is). That's more or less my day, really. And now I'm exhausted...
