Yesterday we picked kale at the community garden, fun in and of itself, then did the good deed of using alcohol wipes to clean a whiteboard that had writing on it that wouldn’t come off–the alcohol wipes worked, and the owner of the non-profit was happy. Then went to Thai food, and my food was […]
Thundery here. I like the thunder sound with the tinkling windchimes, the windy sounds. We watched a permaculture movie online. It was about water–swails, dams, tanks, hugelkultur, making soil better so there’s less runoff, gray water… Then Ming was inspired to garden. He pulled weeds, planted more dates. “That’s it?” I asked. “Yeah,” he said.
Last night we went to a permaculture meeting in Henderson. It was good, and I liked the people a lot. Yet meetings are too long for me. People seem content to sit and talk for so, so long. I can’t take the anxiety and we left early. I was done, and Ming was sleepy. We […]

Yesterday we stopped by Lorenzi Park for a walk around the pond. We saw ducks with their ducklings swimming in the water. Cute! Big ducklings and little fuzzy-looking ones.

We made it home to Las Vegas. Ming’s at the pharmacy trying to get something difficult. I dripped tomato soup on my shirt at a panera many towns ago. Oh success! The pharmacist will do the thing! Also I found some Chupa Chups at a candy store in Baker.
