More quick notes...

Here is the news of the day.

*I brought the cabbage from my house, isn't it pretty?

*Thank you all so much for your kind words on the blog, I read them all throughout the day and they keep me smiling. I am so touched and can't believe how many people actually take the time to read this blog.

*I have a coffee-grinder-savior. Many thanks to Eric for loaning me this great machine until I can buy one myself... I will be using his fair-trade organic coffee.

*Two fantastic people came by and brought flowers. G&A, you are beyond. BEYOND.
This reminds me that I need to say that I am so so lucky to be surrounded by incredible people. Really. I can't believe how generous people have been with their time and words and resources.

*I made 3 soups during today's crazystorm: chipotle chicken with black beans and corn. broccoli and cheddar. sweet potato, lemongrass and coconut.

*My neighbors saw me (sitting on the grass), early morning, trying to get my tall grass out of the planters, pulling with my hands, pushing with my feet, huffing and puffing. Man, what a sight.

*Gas stove = Charred green peppers = burrito love.

*Apparently, I have the same flooring as Play. Some people from the neighborhood came in and told us. And they also told us that we need a liquor license, asap.

*I need a double. Any of you read Calvin and Hobbes? I want a cardboard box that duplicates me.

Take care of yourself!

J'adore les choux! J'en cherche depuis longtemps. Tu vas devoir me dire où tu les a pris.

J'ai rêvé à ton ouverture hier... Tout se passait bien :-)

À bientôt
