Do you read Bloodsigns? She is one of the most talented writers I’ve ever come across. Sometimes after I read her posts, I sit, stupefied, stunned. Esperanza and I joke that many times we just can’t comment on her posts because we don’t want to sully the page with our banal observations.
She had a meme last month that I loved, but I never got my act together to join in. I hope it’s not too late.
“I am fascinated by life where they are — where all of you are no matter what country — what life is LIKE there…and I thought I’d try to do a picture post trying to capture the essence of this part of the United States… at least for us, this is what it’s like here…”
So. Here’s what it is like in our corner of Northern California at this moment.
We eat a lot of rainbow chard right now.
Sometimes, we go to Dim Sum at Ton Kiang in the City. That’s where Darcy and I had our rehearsal dinner.
Darcy has been experimenting a lot in the kitchen.
This was delicious, like most of the dishes he’s made.
We went on a hike to see the salmon run at Samuel P. Taylor park. They, er, didn’t. At least not while we were there.
For Tu Bishvat, the twins made these “trees” at school.
Every year, MIL makes a Valentine’s Day sweater for the kids. This year’s model, for my son.
My son loves to play minature golf with Darcy.
Remember Copernicus? He has company. He’d like to give us a hug. And eat the marrow out of our bones.
