old-timey turkeys

What do you think?  I glued napkin-portions to the cardstock with painted-on white glue.  Did I tell you this story?  The dollar store had no Thanksgiving stickers.  So I went the napkin way. I am minimally crafty, eh?  I wonder if thy napkins will just fall off?  We’ll see. Photo by Ming!

recipe testing

Yesterday my friend S came over and we ate the delicious sweet potato stew with rice.  We talked for a long time, in Freedom House.  You would never guess she’s a lawyer.  She’s the nicest lawyer in the world. I’m trying to attach napkin-portions to these little homemade books.  The napkins are Thanksgiving-themed and depict […]

lunch making time

Yesterday I went to my theology class at the local UU church.  I shared this essay I wrote about the town where I was born.  I’m supposed to revise the essay for next week, but I think I’ll just write a new one. Then our friend D came over with her kid.  We talked and […]

new friend party

Last night we went to a Halloween party.  It was at the house of this new friend I barely know.  I thought she was good friends with this other friend of ours, but I was wrong. They have a huge house.  Her husband must have a great job.  I think it’s so weird what gets […]

chocolate peanuts

This lady I don’t know is having a crisis.  She was on facebook talking about wanting to die and her pain.  Then she said she ate chocolate peanuts for breakfast and was so ashamed.  I started crying because there’s so much pain in this world.  And people make it worse for themselves.  Where did her […]

enough

This morning I wrote two letters, both in reply to mail that arrived yesterday.  One was to a prisoner in Carson City.  He was given a bad fake knee and wants to sue for a new knee.  I can’t find him a lawyer so far. The other was to a friend I’ve known since 1999 […]

agua

I was lying in bed, knocked out from an allergy pill, the other day. “I feel like that cartoon character guy,” I told Ming. “Homer?  Dagwood?”  “No,” I said.  “That guy who’s crawling through the desert saying, ‘Agua!  Agua!’” “I never saw that,” said Ming. “Oh, maybe just me and my brother saw it and […]

boycott everything

This morning at therapy, I talked so much.  I almost think I said too much.  It’s like I was trying to win a talking competition.  And I won. Then we went to Trader Joe’s for ice cream, a tea place for boba, and Sprouts for a toothbrush.  They have this nice kind of toothbrush that […]

bean wish

A new day, a new blog post to write.  Yesterday I was in a good mood and got so much done. Today I want to go through some stationery.  And make white beans while Ming is hiking with friends. There’s a trend/fad–the InstaPot.  It includes a pressure cooker.  But I think beans are okay, taking […]
