Just when I think I'm a pretty good canner and preserver, my ultra pal Laurie gives me a gift of what she's been canning and it blows me out of the water. A recent gift from her included: cherry pie filling, tomato paste, pear & five spice chutney, peach-chipotle jam, and the following crayon box of fruit curds: lemon, blueberry, lime, pink grapefruit, apricot and cherry. And did I mention that not counting the citrus, she GREW all of the fruits and ingredients for everything? Yeah, she did.
Love you Laurie ♡

I hit up the Han Mi Mart in Troy to get my Asian groceries on. According to the sign on the left, they specialize in "Assi Brand"
refrigerated section of Korean fermented everything
I found some extra long rubber gloves there which I need for Boss Mouse - they say something I can't read on them - maybe it says ASSI

What's better than a theme costume birthday party? Dave & Alex throw legendary parties, and this one was right up there - amazing food and a live DJ in their house!
two of my favorite people on Earth - Dave was Dexy's
Sue 'n Alex
the hip, hop, you don't stop rock it to the bang bang boogie
the lady party goers totally brought the fashions
drinking game Champagne Flip Cup - so rowdy and fun
Raquel and I dressed like 80 year olds - get it?
The brand of my old lady shoes was "Free Time"

When I've gone down to open up the big barn in the mornings the past week, I find my little black barn cat snuggled up to Licky, one of the rabbits. They are about the same size are sit close together out in the snowy hen yard, waiting for their breakfast. It is beautiful to see.
All beings seek for happiness; so let your compassion extend itself to all.

I watched the documentary The Eye Has to Travel about Diana Vreeland, who was so inspiring. I jotted down some of the great things she said throughout the film:
"There's only one very good life, and that's the life that you know you want and you make it yourself"
""A new dress doesn't get you anywhere; it's the life you're living in the dress."
"I think when you are young, you should be enlocked with yourself and your sufferings, then one day you get out where the sun shines and the rain rains and the snow snows and it all comes together."
