Here are the two barrels with bamboo. The window above is our tiny bathroom. The bedroom window is to the right and that’s where we thought he 3rd barrel would look nice.
Here’s the updated closet. It probably doesn’t look much different but it is very bright and sparkly. We added some new hooks for my clothes, as I tend to hang my walking/workout pants and jacket there.
This is the clothes side. Mine is on the bottom. As you can see, I don’t own a lot of clothes.
I’m thinking of adding a barn door ( one that slides) instead of the curtain. I need to check out how much the hardware is but I don’t think it’s a lot.
This morning I made another batch of tomato sauce from garden tomatoes. I think I’ll get about 2 Talenti size containers. I will freeze these. We are getting a lot of Roma tomatoes and orange cherry tomatoes. Not too many slicing ones yet.
I’m experimenting with making pie crust to this morning. It seemed to come together very nicely so fingers crossed. It’s in the fridge for a few hours minimum.
I was going to start the kitchen zone but decided to wait till tomorrow since I was making a mess with tomatoes and flour. So tomorrow will be the kitchen zone and a general tidy up.
My two, lost in USPS space,books finally arrived. the one is the vegetarian one I wanted from The Ananda community. Ananda was started in 1967 in North San Juan which is about an hour from here. It was really at its height in the 1970s. We went multiple times for different reasons. Meditation and I seem to remember a wedding. Then at some point in the late 1980s, Kriyananda, the founder( AKA Donald Walters) got in some serious tax problems and I believe sex scandals and fled to Italy. Anyway, it is a beautiful piece of property. It’s probably over 600 acres about and still continues to this day offering retreats.
This week is hot again so that’s kinda unfortunate. The few days we had in the 80s were great.
Next week is quiet with no appointments so maybe we’ll plan a drive out somewhere. Everywhere here in the Sierra Nevada foothills and Tahoe areas are just inundated with people from the valley and the Bay area. Any thought of a solitary hike is out of the question. I’m not even sure how camping will go next year as everyone has decide to buy campers, RV’s and whatever and flood the campgrounds. I guess a lot depends on when we get the vaccine.
I am reading an outstanding book that I bought on Amazon.
‘White too long’, by Robert Jones. It is an amazing book about White Supremecy in White Christianity. I’m an atheist, but I have a lot of respect for this author and what he is writing.
If you’re so inclined, I’d recommend buying it even if it is too support his thesis monetarily.
