Dunno.We’ll find out. It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything here. I’ve been busy you know – uh huh. My most important job is keeping the seats of my favorite chairs warm.
I did have cataract surgery the end of the week. OhMiGosh! What a difference it makes. Overnight the world became brighter and in focus – so much crisper. So I’m kind of on a type of restriction for awhile. This week the biggy is no lifting and no bending. I’m learning how many millions of times a day living requires bending. I thought I was prepared – things that are used frequently placed at counter height, that kind of thing. Then there are the surprises – like brushing teeth requires bending. What?! Won’t be able to mow the lawn for three weeks. Sadness here. Uh huh.
I found Cranberry Beans. Had no idea those things existed. I think they’re a lot like Pinto Beans. Yesterday I made Borracho Cranberry Beans – yes, drunk beans. They drank a bottle of beer. A bit spicy too, probably because of the jalapeños. They’re really very good over rice.
Our government. Sigh. Our government. Need I say more? Probably not, but I will. I saw Pence on the news defending Trump’s rallies in Tulsa and Phoenix. One of the weakest defenses I’ve ever heard. Freedom of speech, freedom to gather, all those freedoms that make it okay. Freedom to wear a mask if you choose. More of that “setting an example” thing we expect, or should expect, of the “leaders” of our country. The representatives of our country. Could we just vote tomorrow please?
I think I’ll just stay here in my home, by myself, with my masks handy in case I need to go somewhere. Living is kind of important to me.
I’m going to be a grandmother again! yep. My new grandchildren are due to hatch tomorrow. Hatch. Yes. Hatch. My daughter is getting chickens. Maybe I’ll even be able to go meet them this summer. The Covid thing, you know, slows down spending time with those you love as well as those you don’t even know.
My weaving is a happening thing. I’m on a kitchen towel mission these days. My two most recent projects:
There are baby swallows in one of the nesting boxes outside my window getting eager to fledge. Keeping their parents busy with providing the food necessary to give them strength to try that flying thing. A prime example of one of the reasons my cats can only go outside into their catio. Reduces the damage they can do to the local bird population.
Despite our “leaders”, my life really is enough. I hope yours is too.
