|I am all alone in the kitchen, working on lunch and dinner, while the hot bread calls to me. Of course, I incorporate it into the lunch menu...|
Molly harvested the garlic, and laid out on screens that can be moved into the garage, then outside when it is sunny to dry. Jacques and I "pizza mulch" a strawberry bed--a flat version of a compost pile, using newspaper and 3 other layers. After that, Molly and I staple gunned shade netting on a frame for a new vegetable bed. We also fixed the wind break in the main garden.
Lunch was a success!

Afer lunch Molly and I got the dessert ready for dinner—nut crust and flavored cashew cream. Molly soaked the quinoa and millet for the main course.
Then--a pretty big deal:Reiki lesson #2, attunement #3…and a demo treatment how-to. Then Molly facilitated a Reiki session with Rex, and I did one with Jacques. Very trippy and meditative to act as the energy channel. Wow.
After the Reiki lesson and treatments, Molly and I finished getting dinner together. There was a last minute checking the internet for how to get millet to be un-bitter and un-gummy, but Molly saved the day with fresh tangelo juice. Jacques helped decorate the dessert and serve up the sauerkraut appetizer.
|Dessert was for dinner (after quinoa and Millet and vege (as opposed to "veggie," although it is pronounced the same) fantasia... This dessert was raw: nut crust, vanilla flavored cashew cream and fruit.|
|the clean kitchen after dishwashing...Ahhhhhh|
|Sky toward the evening|
|More evening gorgeosity...|
An hour of evening watering and we were freed up at 7:30. I gave Dick a call and spent the evening chatting, reading and partly on the internet…
Only 5 more full days here…then off for a few days to Coromandel or somewhere…
