dan flew to milwaukee yesterday to fetch tashi. they will return tomorrow evening. the picture above is of the signposts in front of dan's parent's house, pointing the way to where each of their seven children reside.
i'm trying not to sink into lethargy during my time alone, while alternately, i'm trying to allow myself to let things slip. the dishes are piled up, the laundry waits, the paperwork on the desk mocks, the to do list demands. and i am just flitting from one position to another, ignoring it all.
actually. i went to a pot luck last night. it was very nice. i met folks in the birth community and folks in the community in general. i also saw some people that i already know. it was super.
this morning i rose sometime after nine. my cat loki was rolling around the bed licking his limbs. i pulled an old vintage dress out of the closet, applied eye liner and went to the salvation army.
where i found two pairs of crisp sheets. they will either make a bed or make a dress.
an absurd painting of a bear band. it's a real painting!

and a tolkien audio collection performed by himself and his son! one of the four tapes is missing, but three out of four tapes is worth the 50 CENTS i was charged for the entire set. we get to listen to this amazing stuff on our toyota cassette stereo: excerpts from the return of the king, the two towers, the adventures of tom bombadil, the silomarillion, and the poems and songs of middle earth. dan, who reads the lord of the rings trilogy at least once a year, will be pleased.
yes, that is the consumer report from me this morning. but for less than the cost of mocha and a pastry, it was all worth it.
the farmers market followed, where i gathered tomatoes, peppers and other fresh delights. i'm looking forward to a bright salad.
i convinced myself to come home after the farmer's market, rather than run to the matinee of stardust. this may just happen before the day is done.
