This morning we’re having a breakfast dish previously unbeknownst to man: soy chorizo and eggs with cauliflour. It’s tasty. Necessity has been the mother of invention since we have no tortillas or bread for toast, so the veggie is being the carbohydrate for us. Thanks, veggie. Yesterday morning we weeded at Vedanta with P, which […]

delivery

Today Erik is very happy because the two CDs he ordered from Asmatic Kitty arrived: Michigan and Illinoise by Sufjan Stevens. They sent us a sampler CD and a button too–how sweet. We went to the park this morning, and Erik memorized a Wallace Stevens poem while I wrote a letter to a new friend. […]

starlings

Lots of starlings in the mornings, making their cute little sounds like, “Pveee?” and “Tweereeee!” right outside the bedroom window, in the tree and hovering near the window–we’re trying to figure out if there’s a nest, or what’s attracting them to the spot.

momentous

Yesterday I said, “Boo ya,” for the first time. It was spoken to Erik in reference to buying creamy peanut butter for my own apple-based purposes as opposed to the crunchy peanut butter he prefers. At the co-op. I’m working hard on Erik and Laura-Marie Magazine #39 and just about going crazy. I waited way […]
