How are you? Good, I hope.
Reading anything interesting and/or entertaining? I just finished Jack Gilbert's Collected Poems and liked it very much. I extended my borrowing time on Grace Paley's Fidelity so I could continue slowly. As I near the end of The Man Within My Head I realize I preferred the beginning third over the rest and have seen my interest wane since that early section. I've just opened The Stranger and have high hopes.
How about food? Any especially delicious meals, snacks, or beverages you've enjoyed lately? We've really been loving simple salads made with our homegrown lettuces, cucumbers, and herbs. There is a deli nearby that makes great salsa. We eat the salsa with tortilla chips. Garden of Eatin' makes some delicious blue corn chips. Sun tea has been our favorite beverage over the past couple of weeks. I like watching it brew. Luisa's most recent post has put me in the mood for meatballs and I know I'll be making some, her way, within the week.
Movies? Alamar was excellent. I'm still thinking about Blanquita. You'll meet her when you watch the film. I don't know how we took so long to find it. Highly recommended.
Okay, that's it for now. Take care. Enjoy the rest of your week.
