sad things

Ming’s got his health problem back–we thought he was well, but he’s not.  We feel worried and my joy is sapped. Did I tell you someone abandoned their truck in our driveway?  It’s been there for a month.  We have a driveway wide enough for about nine cars (there are three houses on our property). […]

glorified tomato soup

Ate some bad expensive Indian food.  They gave me some rice that was in a metal dish that had a lid so hot I couldn’t touch it.  I used my fabric napkin to open the lid. Also we went to Red Rock today and enjoyed a walk in a canyon.  The earth was blue then […]

earrings I made Mom

“Are earrings easy to make, or am I getting better at it?” I asked Ming. “They’re not easy to make because you have to get the things to face the right way,” he said.  I have agonized about that in the past, but if I have my examples, I’m good, the ones I made first, […]

scrub jay

Ming and I were walking at the park.  I was complaining more than usual.  We saw a scrub jay.  For some reason I explained they like the scrub. “Do you mean shrubs?” Ming asked. “No, the scrub,” I said.  “You know, like in the foothills, not the conifer forest or the real oaks–just the scrub.” […]
