curses

Today we went to a Catholic Worker House.  We saw the peace pole, saw the chickens, knocked quite a few times, and nothing.  No one was home.  I’ve called five times now, over the past few days, and no one answers.  So it’s confusing.  We left a note under the door and on the truck.  […]

olive oil tasting

I forgot to tell you that at the farmers market the other day, I was looking at someone’s olive oil and he offered me a taste.  “Of the olive oil?” I asked.  He gave me tastes in little plastic cups.  I sipped the smallest sips.  I liked the fruitier one.  I felt a little guilty […]

real

Today lots of stuff happened.  Some of it was bad.  For example, the lower radiator hose got detached from the engine of our car.  Some of it was good–for example, cuddling.  Also we did Food Not Bombs bread pick up for the first time in quite a while. It’s been raining a lot, which I […]

my life

This morning there was biscuits and gravy as well as quiche with some kind of meat in it, which was disappointing because the gravy had meat in it too.  I had a biscuit which left a waxy feel in my mouth as well as half a banana and some strawberry yogurt.  I also had something […]
