- I get my hair cut today! I love my new haircutter. It’s a nice thing that I enjoy my hair in this new way now. A very nice thing. I get to have a head full of wild curls. Finally. Glad I learned how to get the most out of my curls. Vanity… 🙂
- I’m grateful for my family. For dinner with Barbara and Allen, for a frenzy of cooking and their pleased responses. I made little eggplant rounds with tomato sauce and sheep pecorino—Barbara called them English muffin pizzas without the muffins. And snap peas and carrots (the latter from my garden). And my foolproof easy delicious and amazing roasted chicken in coconut water. And kale and chard with curried mushrooms. And roasted brussels sprouts. Made all of this in an hour and a half; perfectly timed. I love being a kitchen rockstar! Yum!
- I’m grateful for the ritual for the new Our Lady of Guadalupe mosaic mural in Jingletown, made by Kim Larson, an amazing artist. We processed, singing, to the mural, and then combined waters from a whole bunch of north American sources: the Mississippi, the Great Lakes, the Sacramento River, the Rio Grande, the Willamette River, and more. We watered the rosebushes at her feet and dedicated this amazing art wall, thanking the artists for their work. There was a break in the weather for this event, and we had sun and blue skies. Gorgeous!
- I’m grateful for playing hooky on Friday and seeing what I think might be the best movie of the year: The King’s Speech, with Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Gorgeous! She gets better looking all the time. Yes, even as Bellatrix! I am grateful. I am healthy.
Life is good. Blessed be!
