I had the most incredibly active day today after a great and busy week. I can eat real food with only a bit of discomfort and am eating all the things. I cleaned out our officey corner of the house and folded the Mountain of Laundry the nice taskrabbit lady did on Friday. zond7 and I re-wired all the devices in the corner & set up a new printer. It is all free of dust. There's only a small file of papers marked "to-do" and most of the books are put away. I wrote some letters. THEN I DID MY TAXES. They're filed! We also went out to have brunch and also also zond7 cooked dinner. I went up and down the stairs three times (laundry, and getting a phone cord for the printer/fax setup). Yesterday I re-potted two plants a rosemary and a hyacinth that's about to bloom and go wild. went to lunch, dinner, and an estate sale with my sister where i bought a singer 337 sewing machine and a casserole dish shaped like a huge fat chicken. And the folding stepstool chair same model that my grandparents had in their basement when i was very small. I would sit on it while my grandma was ironing.

If I slightly modify the Singer 337 with some sugru then my sewing machine will become 1337....... It is sea green, with cover, and it jams oddly which may mean that it needs cleaning inside or that I don't understand tension yet, or both.

At the bottom of the stack of papers on, under, and around the desk...the very bottom... my folded and scribbled on sheaf of new poems in progress!!! Treasure!!!

i owe one of these to timmi for sure so i'm thinking to work on them tomorrow.

Moomin is reading the odyssey for school which i keep making fun f because it's the lattimore translation (plonk plonk plonk) But he's so happy to be reading it after all the teenage trouble books. Naturally, they are reading it AS a teenage trouble book. Auspicious hyacinth repotting during odyssey reading! Hair crisping like petals of hyacinth! etc.

At the cafe while eating a salad and some bread with sardines and olives AND cappuccino I thought about, this is what feeling pretty good is like, compared it to how i felt two months ago when i was horribly ill, and tried to remind myself, for next time I'm sick, I am not like imagining it or malingering, I will be actually sick. When I think how distressed I was and trying to just WILL myself out of being ill, holy crap. I'm enjoying food SO MUCH. and just being able to drink a glass of water without distress and pain and hours of reflux. I can also walk around reasonably in the house. I looked down the street today and imagined the moment when I will walk to the corner store, and back. And maybe to the bakery half way down the other block. THAT WILL BE A DAY.

I'm icing my ankles now and my knees, they are not super happy (burning.... and grinding) and I am way overdue for a sacroiliac injection (on a waiting list; otherwise it has to go till march 24)

I would like to boast that I often score over 20,000 while playing "Threes!" and challenge you all to beat that!

happy dayyyyyyyyyy brain active, feeling energetic, can move around, pain at a reasonable level, full of ideas! tomorrow, stacks of things will leave the house!

THREES is a puzzle game involving simple math and space manipulation. All the cool kids are playing it everywhere.

Is the casserole dish red clay, unglazed? If so, it's a Romertopf (my parents' preferred way to roast chicken). Worth looking it up if so, there's specific things you have to to like soak it in cold water before cooking with it.

So glad to hear you're feeling better!

(edited to more accurately describe a Romertopf)
