i’m sipping a fresh juice that i just made using whatever i had in the fridge. strawberries, almost black concord grapes, cucumber, apple, spinach, mint, lemon. i usually don’t juice berries or grapes, but these were sort of soft and on the verge of going bad. i throw the whole berry in the juicer including the green top. the lemon had also seen better days. the color of the finished juice was an extremely uninspiring brown color, with a smoothie consistency. for your information it was very agreeable. v.v.v. agreeable. fresh & delicious. possibly my best juice yet.
i won’t go on about it.
i’m piddling in the cool air of morning.
my brother in virginia had a series of small strokes yesterday, but is recovering in the hospital. prognosis is good. physical therapy starts on monday. he’s only 61.
we’re all getting older. and now there’s officially more sand at the bottom of the hourglass than at the top. my friend judy wise wrote that on her blog once upon a time and i never forgot it.
what are we going to do?
right through the anxiety, fear, and possible scenarios of a doomed future that only a wild imagination can construct.
as voltaire said a few hundred years ago in once-upon-a-time land…
life is a shipwreck, but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats.
crying and throwing fits also totally acceptable in the lifeboat. as long as you don’t tip it over.
i doubt ray moss is singing, but i know for a fact he was flirting with the nurse.
maybe i’m accumulating too many damn knick knacks.
what does that have to do with anything?!
just random thoughts i’m gathering together here in my little corner of the world.
and i’m reading this:
and i started an AMAZON WISH LIST for my classroom. mostly books, because our official set came from me heisting a rolling cart of discarded books out of the copy room and wheeling it to my room. i’ve set it to work for 3rd-party vendors because used books (and other things) are perfectly acceptable and encouraged. i always take the cheaper route when i shop on amazon.
i’ll probably make a button and put it down at the footer of my blog. my wish list is Ms. Moss’ 3rd Grade Classroom Wishlist, but it’s not public. it can only be accessed via that shared link.
thanks peggy for mentioning it in the comments a couple of posts back! i hadn’t thought of it, but quite frankly it’s an unbelievably excellent idea.
see you soon!
