Mount Hood Road Index 2.0 (Week 12)

1. LIFE’S LITTLE INCONVENIENCES
Oh my fucking G-d keys just cannot stay put this week. We both manage to go into panic mode over losing our keys in two separate incidents in one twenty-four hour period. Is that a new record? ‘s turn up under ‘s laptop case, while ‘s turn up at the CVS in South End. Mind you, both places had been checked in those locations before they were found there.

Also, lugging heavy stuff is an inconvenience. And so is bleeding, although after a particularly long cycle this month, it’s still welcome.

2. THOUGHTS FOR FRIENDS
Two yarzheits this week: ‘s father and grandfather. She’s thinking of dead people she cares about. Also, she had a good phone conversation with TeacherRefPoet. It’s good to begin trying to mend some fences. had a really miserable trip to the ER, and got some bad news this week. Finally, our thoughts are still with as her brother now battles psychosis as well as cancer.

3. THIS WEEK’S MEAL
It may not count as a meal, but made another batch of the World’s Best Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies this week. Delicious! also whipped up a dynamite spontaneous salad with pea shoots, courtesy of Boston Organics.

4. ENTERTAINMENT
We rented movies and highly recommend Who Killed The Electric Car? – Excellent, excellent documentary. Really shocking and appalling to see images of demolished, full functioning electric cars that hundreds of people offered to buy from General Motors rather than allow them to be destroyed. See it.

5. WHAT AM I GRATEFUL FOR THIS WEEK?
Manicures and pedicures, and massage chairs while you get them. And little whirlpools for your feet. MMMMmmm. Now we’re ready to go to Miami. Having a deck, and a pleasant view. And for spring, which has brought the birds back, including a house finch and lots of sparrows, and made it warm enough to actually want to be outside. We’re also grateful that there are plants like morning glories and hostas because they might actually thrive in our low light woodsy little porch/home.
