First daffodil!



That was yesterday. Today, blizzard.


• What are you reading?

Still Becoming, by Michelle Obama.
Also An Unkindness of Ghosts, by Rivers Solomon, for SF book group tomorrow.

• What did you recently finish reading?

Cultured: How ancient foods can feed our microbiome, by Katherine Harmon Courage, and now I am looking for Jerusalem artichokes tubers to plant. This book agrees with my sister about the importance of the microbiome, but has completely different recommendations; Courage is for fiber and fermentation and my sister is basically paleo.

The Color Purple, by Alice Walker, for classics book group next week.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
The House of Tomorrow.

Aiko has a small dark bump on his skin. They're doing a punch biopsy now. We probably won't hear the results before Monday.

Neal mowed my lawn for the first time this year. It was pretty tall; I was surprised I hadn't had a warning from the city yet. When we got back from the raptor center, guess what I found in my mailbox? Fortunately it was only for the front and sides, which Neal had just mown. The back needs a lot of work too but I guess they overlooked it.

Neal also made me a new raised bed and filled it with compost. I made the compost. That was my contribution.

The new person in our Tawanda book group has a beautiful front lawn, all wildflowers with occasional clumps of buffalo grass. I went over there to lend her our May book. She answered the door holding her puppy. I handed her the book, said, "I'll trade you," and took the puppy. So soft!
