Sunday: I made Pat order me fried zucchini sticks from our favorite pizza place. He was morally opposed to it, to the point of being uncomfortable saying the words on the phone, but he pulled through like a champion and made the order. And even though Pat was thoroughly convinced they would be “awful,” they were actually quite delicious. It made me smile.
Monday: I made time to read for over four hours, before and after work today. It made me smile.
Tuesday: WE MADE MORE GUACAMOLE! It made me smile.
Wednesday: Sarah and I had a speaking engagement at Willow Green retirement community this morning. The speech went great, and afterwards, the lovely people loaded us up with food to take home. It made me smile.
Thursday: During a fundraiser at Southern Lehigh High School this evening, hundreds of people stopped by our LAMN table to give us donations. Most of them knew little about us, other than our mission, and it felt good to know that they believed in our mission enough to support us. It made me smile.
Friday: Whenever Sarah helps me take my new drug that I’m experimenting with (salbutamol), she asks if I can walk yet. It always makes me smile.
Saturday: So, um, we got three feet of snow. Long day of reading, tea, and watching the flakes fall. I’m smiling like a little kid.
If I could, I would spend a lot of money, now, on a very small house that would cost very little to maintain and sustain itself on a day to day basis in the future. I would build it on property near a river and I’d pay for an attractive and well-built stone wall if it made sense to and leave as many gates as possible free to open. Arch archways. I would make sure I have room for tiers of raised vegetable beds, perhaps on a hill, with a dug out underneath for mycology and growing fungi. Herb gardens in sunny meadows. Bees of course and nut and fruit trees and a system for training water to collaborate in its own recycling. A separate kitchen and in and outdoor showers plus a fish pond and a good-sized weeping willow. Lettuce and rhubarb for its tissues. A natural cellar. I’d spend most finding a place and equipping it for sustenance.
If I could, I would spend a lot of money, now, on a very small house that would cost very little to maintain itself, later.
