Roman

(no subject)

One of the interesting things about freecycle, at least in this area, is that so many of the people offering things live in odd out-of-the-way places, places I had no reason to know existed. Sometimes I am taken by the beauty, others by the wonderful remoteness, always by the surprise.

Today I picked some stuff up from an apartment that used to be an army barracks, off highway 1, rather distant from town. Not a place you expect to find an "apartment". Very cool, though. I might go back with my camera and just look around a bit.

Thanksgiving

My daughters and I were unable to find a venue for Thanksgiving that all of us could get to. We decided to go it alone.

I am now thinking how nice it will be. I will have my little pot of soup with some crusty bread, and i will make a no-bake pumpkin cheesecake for dessert (recall: I don't have a working oven). I will call the daughters and we will talk. And it will be low-stress. I am liking it.
