one with nature

I bought a hummingbird feeder yesterday, that attaches to the window. I boiled up some sugar water and let it cool in the fridge overnight. This morning I filled the feeder and attached it to the window. Of course, so far, no hummingbirds. The other birds are out in force, though, so maybe they'll tell their hummingbird friends.

The farmers market was full of tomatoes, peaches, apples, oranges, and other wonderful things. There is one guy there who sells a variety of different vegetables and is almost a vegetable proselytizer without being annoying. It just comes naturally, I think. He's the only one with the Chinese long beans, and he has several varieties of egg plants and peppers. He will offer suggestions on cooking to anyone who picks up anything. I bought two small skinny eggplants, a light color, and he threw in a dark-colored one so I could find out the difference between them.

After filling up my cloth bag I headed for the nearby Starbucks. As usual on a Saturday morning, a line. They handled it well, brought it down quickly. But when I got outside with my tea (I asked for a grande size cup but only one teabag, and when the guy charged me the full grande price of $1.65 I said I'll take the second tea bag too, which I took home with me) all the tables were filled. There weren't any other tables or places to sit in the vicinity so I headed for my car.

I decided to look for a futon frame, so I can use Elaine's futon in the living room as a couch or love seat. Goodwill didn't have any, and the futon store had only fairly expensive wood types. I realized when I went there that the twin size is only going to fit the love seat size frame, so at least I know now what to look for. Now I'm back. I put the fresh food away. I am worried that I will not use it all. I think I can make a few soups, use up some of the veggies, especially the chili pepper I bought, and some fresh basil. I still have some of the veggie lo mein left that I made last night, plenty for lunch.

But mainly I need to get to the storage building.

    I suppose it is the curse of anyone who is musical to be unable to ignore music. I am plagued by the piped in music in stores and I choke when I hear…

    Yesterday I went downtown three times. The first time I passed by the pasty place and decided to stop and get one. The second time was to pick up a…
