14 April

Yet another long late night, after lots of running around all day in order to satisfy paperwork & logistical requirements—but also having a sense, finally, that I’ve gotten enough done that “every thing’s gonna be alright….” *humming song to myself”

Just a note of gratitude:

  • for eggs … even omitting the yolks, & simply boiled, with a little salt, they are so satisfying of a protein craving
  • and for “my Egg Lady,” whose chickens produce the wonderful brown orbs—& in ever-greater profusion as Spring rolls, stretches herself, yawns, & begins to wake…

So, OK, I'm living dangerously here....

Yep, I’m gonna post a URL … which I haven’t been doing lately, because I don’t want to lose more than eight years of my life, as recorded here at 43T, to an accidental or misguided flagging/purging of my account (don’t wanna be mistaken as belonging among those 30K+ URL-filled spam messages at NW!).

Still & all, I’m gonna post this anyway, taking a risk because I loved this book so much & want to bring it – as well as the rest of this year’s crop of Pulitzer-honored works – to your attention.

But don’t trust me or the Pulitzer committee on this: go read Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch for yourself!

On one hand, financial idiocies to cope with (estimates! paperwork! approvals! argh); on the other hand, a major “pay off” in terms of community liaison (I seem to have a knack for this smile).

20/20 - Apricot Butter

Naturally sweetened, consisting only of the fruit itself, cooked into a jammy paste; unfortunately, not very flavorful (an almost watery consistency), although it worked well enough when mixed into yogurt.
