Once we have our Colorado retreat built I look foward to being snowed in there.
I will be giving up sugar, for my health. We stopped at Extraordinary Desserts.
I got the cream cheese brownie.
We walked and saw. A house being saved.
Picking up our vegetable box before getting home.
Dec 24 2008, 3 hour walk.
We saw the work of Louise Bourgeois
I am so grateful that I can get up to LA.
I was going to write Monday.
That day I felt a seasonal change and it was nice.
I was going to write Tue.
That day I paid bills, shopped for food, and did homework.
Yesterday was a class field trip.
That day we walked around Little Italy, met designers, and saw great things for interior design.
Then a small group of us went to Extraordinary Dessert.
I realized it is really nice to be with people who are working towards their future.
They are not worried about the economy today because their energy is directed towards a future.
If you think about your future it should be exciting and I think for us it is.
We watched movies on TV, ate, and napped.
Later in the day we took a walk. The air was clean and clear.
On the walk we decided we would not have our traditional stuffed squash clay baker dish.
We had already eaten too much. The clay baker dish we will have either Fri, Sat, or Sun. This Thanksgiving dinner will be a big fresh salad, and of course, dessert.
Although the stitches used dissolve over time, they did take out what he had left.
He is recovering well.
They said he was very good and they gave him a bonus brushing all over.
He loves to be touched, brushed, combed, and kissed.
The eye which was taken out was biopsied and it did have a tumor and it was cancer.
We will hope the cancer did not spread.
We will have to keep on eye on him, all our eyes on him.
Economic downturn, recession, unemployment, crisis, bailout, and depression.
These words all have such negative associations.
What if there were other ways to word what is happening?
Economic change, departure, opportunity, turning point, rescue, contraction.
I finally looked down and saw he had a small white mouse in his mouth.
He was so proud.
I went to get the camera to document his accomplishment.
He quickly walked outside and away.
I kept hearing him outside talking. I called him in.
The mouse had stiffened.
I saw him start to eat it. I heard him crunching the bones.
I tuned from the computer and saw guts on the floor.
He finished up and left nothing.
There was not even one spot of blood on the floor.
We wondered did he catch a pet mouse. Throughout our neighborhood will we see signs reading? LOST, CUTE WHITE MOUSE, REWARD IF FOUND.
The Supreme Court has ruled that it is okay for the Navy engages in sonar activities off the coast.
They did this even knowing it kills whales.
Maybe it kills other marine life.
Maybe another country could sue us to stop this activity.
Or, we could stop using military force, which means we could stop training to kill, and killing to train.
Some day we will have compassion for the world.
