We had salads with hummus. And some crackers. The dog loves honey. Her name was Sugar Pie.
We brought tree kale from our community garden. And some oregano.
I feel inspired to make huge salads now.
We need a birthday card and / or present for our friend whose party is today. She's vegan and very nice. Ming and I met at her birthday party three years ago, so it's special.

I went to Shine Coffee and wrote a letter and ate a vegan sugary thing. Then I went to the SPCA thrift store and shopped for notecards.
We spent the rest of the day relaxing. We bound some zines. I addressed envelopes for mailing out zines. Posted some things on facebook.
And that's our exciting life.

putting the fun back in funeral
Last night was a puja and we were up late.
I have these pens made from recycled bottles and they're beautiful. They have Pilot G2 ink in them, which is great ink but not waterproof, unfortunately. I use them for writing letters but not addressing envelopes.
Yesterday we copied the new zines. I feel weird about them--that can happen. Zinester's regret. It's like buyer's remorse but the opposite.

Food Not Bombs
I looked in google images for a pic of the right sticker, and there were none! Wtf! But here's a pic I blogged some time ago of ours. That's it with the carrot in the hand.

new backyard garden pics
kalamta olive tapenade
Those were all ingredients I had--I didn't want to go out and buy capers. And I didn't want to use anchovies, obviously.
I didn't want to use the blender we're permanently borrowing from a friend, so I used a potato masher. It worked to crush the olives. I used a garlic press on the garlic. Anyway, great.
1 cup of kalamata olives, pitted
3 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
Make things into a paste or chunky paste however you see fit.

Yesterday Ming and I went to the Bay Area to see his kids and mom. It was fun. But the weather driving there and then the weather driving home was treacherous. But we made it safely thanks to Ming's mad skills.
I was going to try to list some fun moments for you, but they were mostly indescribable. It's the middle of the night. I liked the ease. Everyone was in a good mood, probably me the least. Least-good but still good.

This morning we walked to the post office where I mailed mails and bought more heart stamps. They're the cutest.
It lightly sprinkled on us. The sun comes and goes. Our prayer flags flutter in the wind.

I like their high crunchiness and salty flavor. Ming likes to eat them with Thai dry chili paste--I like them plain.

delay of game
I wrote a long poem about my neighbor who died. I submitted it to a journal last night, and we'll see what they say. I don't usually write poems so long.
I've heard you should schedule all your difficult chores for February 29th. I think I'll try that.

Grieving is hard work, so I'm giving myself another sick day. But Ming is outside doing yardwork with the landlord and a living neighbor.
I was cleaning my desk. I eliminated the huge pile on the left. I threw a lot away. I am inspired by my friend AL who lives a clutter-free life. She's the one we visited in Arcata.
I can hear living neighbors talking downstairs outside. It's a warm day. I am avoiding everyone. I have been avoiding everyone for a while now.
And that's the very heavy news for today. Don't break your arms carrying my heavy news. Just leave it by the door.

My favorite line so far: "when you feel like throwing all your books in the air."
today and yesterday
Last night we went to this vegetarian restaurant called Wildlflower. I got a curry that was bland. Ming got some delicious noodles in a peanuty sauce. He let me have two bites. I ate the veggies I like best out of my curry, leaving the carrots and bell pepper.
This hotel is not as good as our last one, but the location is perfect.
