Musee Mechanique and other delights

Yesterday we went to San Francisco to see my old friend P and his ex J.  I have known P through zines for maybe seven years.  It was our second time meeting in person.  He lives in New York. Let me tell you about our day yesterday.  I will somewhat quote from a postcard I […]

new plants

Here is the basil we planted today in bed three. Here’s some yerba buena that we planted months ago in a pot.  To its left is some lemon balm, and to its lower right is some mint. Here’s a garbanzo bean we planted–we planted three in bed four. Here’s rue, which is an herb with […]

zombie fear

I forgot to tell you that when Ming and I walked to Safeway yesterday around 8 in the morning, no one was out.  “Where is everybody?” I asked.  Then I realized it was Memorial Day and everyone was home eating pancakes.  But I started feeling creeped out by the lack of people, as if there […]

cute little sweet potato

This sweet potato started sprouting, so Ming put it in water, and it’s grown into a beautiful plant on the windowsill.

Rubaiyat quote

Today we walked to the nearest Safeway for another fruit run.  It was fun.  And for the first time I saw this quote on a wall next to a non-flowing fountain.  Love it!

late spring backyard garden today

Ming took some garden pics for me and for you.  First are the sunchokes.  There are growing in this pot that doesn’t drain well.  They’re in with what look like some dead tree collards, but they are just sleeping. Here is our grapevine.  Its name is Fig Tree.  Doesn’t it look lush and great? Here’s […]

pancakes, rice pudding, orange juice

This morning I was making pancakes and reached in the case of soymilk to get more soymilk and cut my finger on the cardboard.  Wtf, cardboard paper cut!  But the pancakes were really good.  They were vegan cornmeal almond pancakes. This morning was Buddha puja.  We sang at choir practice and sounded pretty bad, not […]

earthquake

Last night I was lying in bed.  Ming was in the bathroom brushing his teeth.  And then the bed was moving.  I thought, “I must be really dizzy.  But it really does feel like the bed is moving.”  Then I thought it must have been an earthquake.  “Did you feel an earthquake just now?” I […]
