Saturday April 9 2016
Waking up at 11:25 a.m.
Steel Cut Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Raisins, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.
Teaching an hour lesson to Maria at Music Makers.
Picking up groceries and filling up the water jugs at Whole Foods.
Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese. Corn Tortilla Chips with Avocado and Tomato. Oolong Tea. Muscat Grapes (which are absolutely heavenly).
Watching Arrowhead (2016).
Staying in the kitchen primarily being a kitchen witch and prepping all kinds of food for tonight, tomorrow, and in general. Then, it's my turn to clean the kitchen.
I've realized as of late that I don't include many self-portraits (selfies) on the blog but maybe I should?
Ana arrives home from work. Sharing fresh homemade Pizza and a Salad at the card table. More Grapes.
Practicing songs on the piano.
After doing a few chores I convince Ana to lie down next to me.
"I just want love and affection," I tell her. "Is that alright?"
I read a couple quotes from Steppenwolf, a book by Herman Hesse I started reading a few years back but never finished. She just cut her bangs, something she does from time to time to keep her eyes open to the world.
I go to pick up my phone and she immediately reacts, "No!"
"What?" I ask. "What did you think I was going to do?"
Apparently, she thought I was going to snap a photo but I was just setting my alarm.
"Actually that's a good idea. Your 50-year old self would like to see a close-up of your bangs."
Reading a little before I fall asleep at 2:20 a.m.
