[Edited 6/5/2020: image removed]. Explanation here. Through this week, I am trying to be more aware of my own explicit and implicit biases. I am forcing myself to acknowledge how I benefit from and how I unintentionally encourage the broken parts of the system. I am learning which actions are meaningful and which are not.Continue reading
I want to try the breakfast sandwiches from Camellia Coffee but, until then, I suppose experimenting with making my own will have to do. Earlier this week we had two brioche-style buns (leftover from weekend burgers) and inspiration hit me… While cooking two chicken-apple sausage patties, I generously buttered and toasted the buns on the same griddle. SoContinue reading “This is just the (breakfast sandwich) beginning”
At 40 days the light deck is raised at the maximum. You can see how full the herbs grew out to be. There’s plenty to harvest (and use). As suspected, I enjoy having fresh cilantro readily available the most. Though the dill has been a very nice addition to our scrambled eggs, regularly.
Blood pressure is high.Likewise, calorie intake.Activity now!
The rosemary is still taking its time, which is fine. There’s no rush. I have been harvesting the dill (for scrambled eggs) regularly. So good. And the cilantro has come in handy for some tamales and burrito bowls. It’s really nice to be able to just pick what you want (and not have to buyContinue reading “AeroGarden herbs – Day 33”
Cold opens are forLaughter and setting the tone. The Office rocked them.
Sitting on the patio, taking breaks from sitting at computer screens and trying to be productive. I like watching these succulents, observing the way they move towards the sunlight and simultaneously towards each other.
I had to raise the light deck a couple times during the week. The dill and chives (as you can see) are skyrocketing upwards. The cilantro is filling out nicely. I may have to use some this week. Same with the Thai basil. You can see on the left that I started some green onionContinue reading “AeroGarden herbs – Day 26”
No concentrationOr way to focus on the Concentrated task.
Not a bad start overall. The rosemary is coming in quite slowly but, it’s definitely making progress. I moved it from the back to front, switching places with the dill, to allow the dill more room to grow. The whole left side is shaping up nicely, with the cilantro starting to fill out a lotContinue reading “AeroGarden herbs – Day 20”
Tis hard to see the mighty prancing war horse, trampling the dying and dead beneath their merciless feet. No dear wife, near to speak a word of comfort. No living sister or Mother to administer relief in that hour the most sad in the history of humanity. O the humanity. O the horrors of war.Continue reading “Heaven grant there may be an end soon”
What is beyond hereIs for us to imagine,And not to forget.
Ahead of the curve. Flatten the curve. Crest of the curve… We’re all in this together. We’re seeing, perhaps not truly understanding but, we’re seeing it. Actions of others affect us. Our actions affect others. Selfish acts can cause harm. Unselfish acts can save lives. We’re the curve.
The time to be boredIs also time to value. Be comfortable.
