party at Birch Point Farm

my awesome farmer friends threw a party at their organic farm

the party was out in an old barn, and they played music throgh this old organ.  The organ doesn't work, but they use it as a speaker

classic soul!

At the indoor farmers market, there is a take one/leave one book box, where I picked up The Bats of Texas

It has great information and photos like this one of the spectacular Hoary Bat, which reminds me of General Ackbar from Star Wars

goodnight Licky

Licky died yesterday after being very sick for the past few weeks.  She was a beautiful, gentle bunny and we will miss her a lot.

Mabel has come such a long way from the fragile, senior cat who wouldn't come out of the basement the first two years she lived with me.  Here she is curled up on my lap on the couch.

what if

who needs a cheese cave when you've got a karaoke cave?  I wonder what the cheese would taste like if I aged it in there?  Definitely Purple Rain, with notes of Thinking Out Loud

dress and bra

Thrift haul from last week: beautiful shirt dress and brand new, unworn, expensive bra with tags still on it.  How does stuff like this end up in a thrift shop for $1.99?

25 years

This Easter Sunday, April 5th, was my 25th year eating a vegetarian diet.  It is one of things I am most dedicated to, and most proud of in my life.


In my dream last night, I was swimming in a large, public swimming pool that had no windows.  I also realized that I was swimming with my white cheese muck boots on, and that they were filled with water so very hard to swim with.  I also thought that because I was in a pool, it will clean the boots off, but when I looked down they still looked dirty.

A young man at the edge of the pool threw an empty Pop Tart box into the water - chocolate frosted flavor - and I swam over and tried to kick the box out of the water, but my boots were so heavy I couldn't do it.

Doctor, what does this mean?
