I Like It

Did you stay home today?  Popped into Mama Pho for my order

What local business or charity did you support?   Mama Pho, tipped large

What’s for dinner?  Mama Pho. They have 35 items on the menu. I put on my random number generator and chose 26. It was chicken & beef, in a spicy sauce over rice. With a bit of duck sauce (sweet tooth) it was good to the last drop.


Someone is making too much yarn.

Takes All Kinds to Make a Rainbow

I was right; I don’t like it. That’ll teach me to trust my gut next time.

Still, it’ll add nice variety to my collection. Maybe someone will want it someday to knit an ugly little hat for a little boy. Guys always want to wear ugly stuff.


Did you stay home today?  Yes but X went out for hardware

More Pretty

Did you stay home today? 100%

What local business or charity did you support? Marshfield School of Weaving

Welcome to the fold:


I’m bringing back this feature, like I used to do during the spring lockdown, because it’s quasi-lockdown time again; and these are three things that are personally helpful for me to focus on:

Did you stay home today? Literally 10 seconds in the lobby of Railroad & Main picking up my order

What local business or charity did you support? Railroad & Main

What’s for dinner? A chipotle chicken quesadilla, no side, from Railroad & Main

The first is helpful because it reminds me my boredom is for a purpose.

The second is helpful because I know I’m better at making the world a better place through my dollars than by actually being a nice person. Hey, we all have a role to play.

The third is helpful because food = comfort.
