reading

My friend H loaned me Wicked, which is about the wicked witch of the West. It’s cartoonish and good. I love witches, especially imaginary ones. And I’ve loved this particular witch since I was a kid. I’m listening to Persuasion by Jane Austen on a little device I got from the library–I think it’s called […]

reviews

I missed a note in my package of zines to review for Zine World, missed the note saying my deadline was March 10th. So I’m only halfway done. Got an email yesterday from the person who runs it. I hate being irresponsible. So that’s what I have to do today. We’re making messy rice for […]

messy rice

Erik’s been having the allergy attack from hell–we were up during the night. Yesterday we made Messy Rice from the Veganomicon, and it was delicious, but it burned on the bottom. I need to figure out what I did wrong. I guess I needed to cook it less time. I assumed 40 min because it […]

Today I worked on a series of poems about jobs I’ve had. I like what I’ve come up with so far. I have a habit of rushing things because I like to be done, but I want to try taking this slow and maybe writing more. Tonight I made chickpea cutlets from the Veganomicon, but […]

what Friday feels like

The fava beans we bought online a long time ago came shelled, but these fava beans we got through freecycle were not shelled, so this morning I spent about an hour and a half removing the shells from two pounds’ worth. I had Erik read to me for a few minutes of that time. He’s […]

River Song Meditation

This morning my old yoga teacher Beth Johnson emailed me about her new website, and I thought I would mention it on my blog. I loved Beth’s yoga class, and I stopped going when it was difficult for me to afford it. Beth and I talked about working out alternate arrangements, but that never came […]

anniversary, static, soap, etsy

Yesterday nothing interesting happened except that it was our seven year wedding anniversary, and Erik was scoring for nine and a half hours, so we didn’t go out to lunch or anything–at night we did a ritual that I designed, and it was brilliant. There are two things I would like to report. The first […]
