Herself: I inch along with the blue quilt, and I have patched that blue and white quilt top I’m using for the back. The creator of that piece sewed much like I do…..haphazardly. The front strips are ready to be ironed and sewn. Poetry class tomorrow. I’ll take the German “Thingplatz” piece with me. Yesterday I had my second shot in the hip. Didn’t take allergy list with me and that delayed things. Extreme discomfort on very hard table, but I am very grateful that G took time out of his day to take me to the hospital. Spent yesterday quietly noting what was happening with my hip every hour. Hip much eased today. Taking it easy. Camera back from shop. Very excited about that.
Architecture in general may be one of my main interests, but food is also a major focus of my life. Not only do I have uncounted numbers of cookbooks, have professionally cooked my way through college the first time around, but my interest in food is now combined with the fact that I’m burned out on cooking. I can’t be alone. There must be millions like me out there in the world who would rather throw together a quickie sandwich than cook Julia Child’s “Julia Child's Beef Bourguignon.” Which really isn’t that hard.
I will post that last piece about the German, pre-WWII architecture here, but I think I will change the focus of my actual essays to writing about food. Every once in a while I will post something about architecture, I can’t help it, but my main focus will be to inspire myself to return to cooking with some form of enthusiasm.
