Have you wondered why it can be hard to find size 1 double-pointed needles?
It's because I seem to be using them all....
(Relatively) Sad News
My faithful Honda Civic has gone to the junkyard in the sky--I was rear-ended on Monday. An unequal fight, not unlike Shadow and Raccoon: the truck that hit me was significantly bigger than my fuel-efficient, 10-year-old tree hugger vehicle. Although the damage was confined to the rear left corner of the car, it was enough to shift the balance away from "fix" to "here's your settlement."
I'm not sure what we will do next. The part of me that loves irony wants to get a giant,inappropriate, in-your-face vehicle and attach a bumpersticker:
Not gonna happen, but I can still giggle about it. This might be the time for a Prius.
Gingko and I are fine, by the way, thank you for your concern.
Unequivocally Good News
Gingko graduated with her Associate of Arts degree from North Seattle Community College! The graduation hinged on her passing Algebra--which she managed, earning a 3.5 in the class. That's my intelligent, uncertain daughter.... Now, it's off to the University of Washington next month. We celebrated by going to Chaco Canyon Cafe, a vegan/raw/organic cafe. Gingko became a vegan last month, so we've been trying lots of different places: Cafe Flora, Chaco Canyon, and Pizza Pi. I learned to cook in the early 70s from the New York Times Natural Foods Cookbook and Diet for a Small Planet, so lots of this food is familiar and comforting.
