variation on Pesto Lasagna

I purchased baby kale as a substitution for spinach in a Pesto Lasagna creation.  The bechamel is made with hemp milk.  The cheeses are mozzarella and parmesan cheese.  I used a premade purchased in the store pesto, Rana basil pesto.  It is in the oven.

The Second Loaf Smiled

As you can see, the second load smiled. The first loaf was a tad bit over done and the second loaf is a slight bit under done.
I am having it with brie cheese..

Gift of Starter

I recently received a gift of sourdough starter from a friend at the folk art guild.  I researched how to make sourdough bread and made two loaves over the course of two days.  The first loaf is quite beautiful, the second is in the oven.  My other project is a mental exercise, deciding if I want to return to college to become a acupuncturist and oriental medicine expert.  The new job is exhausting but a good workout.  It is a challenge to learn all the steps of the cottage cleaning dance.

Day of the Pine Tree

Today I planted a white pine in my back yard.  It was thirty nine ninety nine at a local Mennonite greenhouse plant store.  I told the young Mennonite man who waited on me about white pine tea and vitamin c and the native americans. I hav planted sunflowers, giant russian sunflowers in the back of the pine tree and i am certain that they will look gorgeous by August.

My knee has been bothering me.  I thought it was the hammerride I did, but that is only half of the story.  When insane I purchased high heels.  They are really bad for the cartilage in ones knees!  beware!  Toss the heels!

manic mowers

Like I have posted before, the people in my neighborhood and America in general are obsessed with lawn mowing.  I am a person who would not mow at all if I thought I could get away with it.  We are killing the planet with our engines and all we do is mow mow mow as if the planet were not in danger from the fumes and industry behind mowing.  My lawn is long and a flicker bird stopped in today for a visit.  I had never seen a flicker in my yard until today.  They need the life forms that flourish with lax lawn care.

I waved at my mouse today and he waved back.  Mouse sign language.  I am at a loss as to what to do with the mice.  If I take them to the pet store they will be eaten by snakes and they are half wild.  I think that they belong in the wild, except for father mouse.  Father and mother wash each other and truly so signs of affection so I hate to separate them.

I have a job as a cottage cleaner at the local property maintenance company.  It will be fun yet challenging.  More individuals in the training class misbehaved than I would have expected, so I don't believe that I stood out as an odd ball ill person at all.

life at the library

I spend a lot of time at the library for the free wifi as well as programs.  There has been a series about religion and I have learned about George Gurdjieff this past month.  The past two weeks have been part of a Judaism series about Jewish law.  We are exploring computer operated cars and the moral choices that the programmer face.  In a worst case scenario, how to decide who dies, etc. 

The Gurdjieff series is continuing at the Folk Art Guild tonight. We are learning about his theories of consciousness and the way we human beings are often on automatic pilot, missing the point of life and missing the development of a higher consciousness. The artists at the Folk Art guild are amazingly talented.

life at the coffee bar

Today, I decided to get some exercise by walking.  I have a cracky poppy knee and had to let up on bicycling for a week.  I stressed it with a hammer ride.  I forgot that my body is 56 years old.  I walked to the library and received a blessing from heaven, (a euphanism for rain shower)/which was a curse.  We have had plenty of rain so it is a bit of a curse and I was out with my tablet which is not water proof.  A mother's day curse.  This prompted me to stop and enter a building, buy some stationary and stop in at the new, very classy coffee wine bar.  It is very sophisticated in decor and offerings.  I am an unpretentious sophisticate.  I don't really know how to act in a sophisticated way, but I make my own hummus, quiche, basil pesto, etc.  I know good movies, like The Third Man and High Noon.  I am not that adept at understanding Shakespeare, though.  Perhaps I am a semi-sophisticated woman.  Spell check is bothering me about euphamism/euphanism and the word semi-sophisticat.  The bistro is sophisticated so I initially felt timid about entering it.  The norm is Penn Yan is more homestyle diner. I ordered ginger non-caf-non mind control tea.  I wear my dad's magnifying glasses.  I miss my dad.
