I love quinoa

Today we went to McKinley Park so Erik could run. I walked and didn’t have any trouble with my left calf cramping. It seems random. Then I worked on a letters and listened to They Might Be Giants kids’ music. Tomorrow my friend A is coming to town. I’ll get to see her in the […]

taking a break

I got some eggplants and lemons at the dollar store, so I can make baba ganoush, which pleases me. This morning I read some of I Can’t Keep My Own Secrets, a book of six-word memoirs by teenagers. I read most of the one by adults and liked it a lot. It’s sort of like […]

oatmeal cookies

I made vegan oatmeal cookies that turned out very flat and big. They had a good flavor, but their shape wasn’t right. It was a recipe for a mini-batch that I doubled, so it was enough cookies for one large cookie sheet. But they got so big and flat when they cooked that they covered […]

sore throat

Hope I’m not sick. SAT scoring ends tomorrow. I’m just about at the end of my rope. “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.” But then when I’m done I’ll have a ton of transcribing to do.

It occurs to me that cowrie shells aren’t vegan. I need some nice wooden beads.

more hemp

The fight is over, but people are talking loudly outside. I guess I could put in ear plugs to score. But it’s almost time for Erik to get the laundry. Meanwhile, I’m making great progress in the hemp department–I’m skilled at the square knot chain, and I even figured out how to get the cowrie […]

fight

A fight has erupted. I can’t score while fighting is going on, so I’m working on my hemp project. This apartment complex is so low class.

hemp

My mom gave me some kits for making hemp bracelets and necklaces, two of them, years ago. And the other day my friend H gave me a shitload of hemp twine. So I decided to try to figure out how to make a thing called a square knot chain. I’ve got a helpful diagram. So […]

a living

Today at Trader Joe’s I got some beautiful little organic tomatoes. I like the orange ones best. Tonight we watched Napoleon Dynamite. I thought it was really well done and sometimes funny, but the uncle kind of ruined it. Next I want to get Nacho Libre out from the library. I guess it’s made by […]

appointment

Today I had a doctor’s appointment. I was nervous for about 24 hours before the appointment and am still not feeling well. I’ve been nauseated. Maybe I’m not eating appropriately. I need more veggies and less heaviness. So I got the prescription I needed. We’re nearing the end of SAT scoring. Sunday’s supposed to be […]
