plum picking, lunch out

This morning we went to Vedanta to pick plums first thing. It was fun. We didn’t need to get a ladder–we picked only the plums we could reach and filled a basket. Then we visited P, who was raking near the Krishna pond. Then we did some sweeping. For lunch we went out to a […]

This morning I went to Vedanta to sweep the steps on the Shiva mound and washed the statue a little bit. Then I swept in front of Guru Nanak’s shrine. When I was about to leave, I saw my friend P. I talked to her for an hour while she weeded. Then someone newly living […]

book reviews #42

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris This book kept me company while I wasn’t feeling well. It’s essays—non-fiction memoir—many of them about being a kid, family, growing up gay.

baked apple slices

Today I did the usual churchie stuff. There was worship and then a social time and then choir practice. It was good. I’ve been working on the zine–more binding, and addressing envelopes. It’s a lot to do by hand. I’m making some baked apple slices with butter, cinnamon, and sugar. It smells really good, but […]
