Some think of Bunnies. I LOVE these carrots that I made so long ago. The brown fabric shouted "dirt" to me--good dirt with microbial microsystems. And Easter Bunnies must love Carrots.
I managed to put together a meal for Easter Dinner. Baked chicken stuffed with ham and cheese, steamed broccoli and steamed Jasmine rice. I purchased a small carrot loaf cake for G with cream cheese frosting and orange frosting carrots on top. Nothing for me. Well, I did get a carton of vanilla ice cream.
G has been eating pasta and a pork/mushroom ragu sauce I made for him this week and I had another pot of the vegetable soup to divide between 4 different days. We eat at different times. We eat different foods.
I have been busy cleaning. Clearing surfaces of "stuff" and throwing most of it into the recycling bin. I need to crawl under the art table (or pull it away from the bookcase) and find a new journal to work in. My previous one is full of the remodel and design ideas etc. Also recipes from the Elimination Diet. That journal must cover at least 2 full years.
I was wanting to mount some of the 5 by 7 fabric "pages" into the journal. Whatever journal I choose to use. I used to buy them 4 or 5 at a time (if I liked the smoothness of the pages) and most are filled. I think there are two or three blank ones in the bookcase. I have to go looking. I did buy some with spiral bindings. So I could put thicker things on the pages--even a pocket for index cards. I write on index cards all the time. In fact, a favorite gift for me to get is index cards. White 4 by 6. My husband and daughter always buy me the colored cards. They like colors. I like white. I have like 5 packages in the desk drawer right now--I just looked and counted. And at least a dozen with things written on them: recipes, direction, books to read, drawings etc. So pages with pockets for my index cards.
You know, for most people, the New Year begins in January. For me and I think most Gardeners, the year begins now--in April. Buds on the trees, pussy willow catkins, crocuses breaking ground, dirt where the snow has melted.
I'll be teaching two gardening classes this month. Which is making me think ahead a few weeks.
The Moon woke Riley up again at 3am. He came to get G. I think he wanted company looking at the Moon.
