Saturday I saw my friend S who left for Burning Man yesterday. We ate Mexican food for dinner and really talked. I think it was our first time just the two of us since we were teenagers. It was a real treat. Then we stopped by his place to see the green RV and meet… Read More »
Last night I made nutritional yeast pancakes. They were disgusting! It was some random recipe I found on the internet, three ingredients. Then tonight I made vegan pumpkin pancakes. They were so good! However, they were super thick so it took forever to cook them. I should have added more water. Also, there was nothing… Read More »
Invested in two pairs of hiking socks for Erik today, one blueish and one greenish. It’s good to finish shopping. Now we can wash laundry and be one step closer to finishing our preparations. It’s been hot–today’s high was supposed to be 106. Hot moments in parking lots. Feels like summer in Sacramento. It’s cooling… Read More »
Well, we found long johns and warm vest at a thrift store today. They were inexpensive. All Erik needs now are hiking socks and lip balm. We went to REI for hiking socks this morning. The choices overwhelmed us and we left without buying anything.
Yesterday we thrift store shopped. I found some jean shorts, a black teeshirt, a gray teeshirt, and some brown pants. They’re simple. Erik found a gray windbreaker as well as a long sleeved off-white hiking shirt. He’s wanted one for a while, and we lucked out. He also found a black winter cap (it gets… Read More »
Today we saw some offensive signage on the way to Trader Joe’s, a guy by himself on a street corner with fluorescent GOD HATES FAGS and TURN OR BURN. How do you even react to something like that? Would flipping him off just add fuel to the flame? What does he want? To hurt people?… Read More »
Today tree trimmers have cut down a tree I love, a mulberry tree that grew in front of our apartment complex. This tree shaded our car for six years. I think its brother might be doomed too. We’ll see how many trees are down by day’s end.
http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/full.php?ID=32124 Erik has a Rembrandt painting as his desktop, and it depicts Jesus in a hat. What the heck? And he has a shovel in one hand. So I googled “Jesus in a hat” and got eight hits. One is talking about a different painting depicting Jesus in a hat–in that painting, his upper body… Read More »
I think of bobby pins as really old fashioned. But I bought some today at the dollar store. I went to the dollar store to look for barrettes for holding wisps of my hair back while I cook for Food Not Bombs on Sunday, if that really happens. I bought some snap clips also. The… Read More »
Last night the neighbor kids were up hitting things until about midnight, Erik tells me–I put in earplugs around 10:15. Then this morning there was a domestic disturbance starting around 7:20. I’ve been making some delicious oatmeal with walnuts and flaxseed meal in it, with brown sugar and Earth Balance and cinnamon, made with soymilk.… Read More »
