18 May


Had an interesting deja vu moment today: On Sunday, I was thinking about my old address in Incline: 949 Dana Court. And the number 4 popped into my mind and a $350K price. Then this morning, I received an email via Trulia with the latest listings from Incline. There was only one, it was 949 Dana Ct. #4, with an asking price of $399K. Interesting isn't it?

The realtor who handles long-term rentals in Incline Village has not responded to the online query I sent them on Friday. So I queried them again, twice, today: once via email, once via their website, and then I sent my local realtor there in Incline an email telling her they were being non-responsive. Huh.

My computer has managed to lose it's hard drive...really....when I try to run a diagnostic test to find out why it won't run it says: 'hard disk not found'. Not good. It's still under warranty with HP but it will take two weeks for them to send out a box, ship it, fix it, and ship it back. My concern is that this is the second computer of mine in the past six months that this has happened to...am wondering if this is a security issue or a strange coincidence.

Anyway, no computer. Went to library to use theirs, a sign on the door said they were closed 'due to emergency'. Huh. So, spent weekend reading a book on resume writing and another called "To build the life you want, create the work you love".

And finally a trip back down Memory Lane: back in 1994, when I first left New York, I travelled to the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington, thinking that I would settle there. Today, on a lark, I went to realtor.com and looked up houses on the island....seems I can afford houses there.

This is what a friend of mine once described as stumbling around like a drunken sailor.

"Stumbling around like a drunken sailor" is so the name of my upcoming memoir. :)

You may feel like you're wandering but I think you're headed in the right direction.

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Simple Spinach and Kale Fettucine

On Wednesday I picked up my first box of organic from the High Country Conservation Center’s Summit CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Way back in February, I bought a ‘share’ in this summer’s crop, which entitles me to a weekly box of organic vegetables from mid-June through October.




Now that the vegetables have arrived, I have two reactions: 1) Wow! This is so exciting! Look at these beautiful vegetables, I’m going to be so healthy. 2) Yikes! What am I going to do with four bags of greens?









For the next sixteen weeks, I want to share my culinary adventures as I cook my way through my CSA box each week. Even if you don’t subscribe to the CSA share, you’ll enjoy these recipes which focus on our summer bounty. I hope you’ll also be inspired to try more vegetable-centered meals. Now, back to those four bags of greens! 


This week’s recipe polished off two of the bags immediately. You can make this easy and tasty recipe for two or four people, just increase the amount of greens and th…
