Winter                                                                         Waxing Moon When Mark and Tom were here, we tried to recapitulate our Durango trip breakfast at the Rustic Station.

I see Christmas

Winter                                                                        Waxing Moon 8-10 inches of new, fluffy snow Monday night and yesterday. Looking out our bedroom window at night I see Christmas. Flocked trees. The full moon shining on fresh powder. A significant chill in the air. 7 degrees. With SeoAh and Murdoch gone I’m back to cooking, cleaning. Spaghetti with meatballs on Monday, […]

The Left Behind

Winter                                                              Waxing Moon Gabe came up and spent the night on Saturday.

Simcah

Winter                                                                              Waxing Moon Kate’s wanting to get out and not just visits to medical facilities. Her stamina has improved some, she’s eating more. She’s still in the 80-82 zone, but I’m looking forward to her cracking 83. Then up from there. She’s laughing and smiling, things I didn’t see often over the last three months. […]

Let It Be

Winter                                                                        Waxing Moon Over to the second H-Mart with SeoAh yesterday. This one is smaller than the one in Aurora, but is much better organized. It’s more like a US supermarket though with very different stock. The Aurora H-Mart is more like an Asian market. I love the produce, the array of seafood, and whole […]

Winter                                                                                Waxing Moon Made a big circle yesterday. Drove into Denver on 6, a six lane version of 6th Street between hwy 470 and Santa Fe. Wanted to try LeMar’s Donuts since Kate needs weight and likes donuts. It’s right at the intersection 6th and Santa Fe. I like Bismarck’s and crullers, Kate prefers original […]

Waxing

Winter                                                                      Waxing Moon Thanks to all of you who participated in name that moon. All the ideas were good. I chose this one because it’s short and lunar and germane to Kate’s goals. Thanks, Scott. Kate had a bad day yesterday. Nauseated when she got up and fatigued right away, unfortunately both continued throughout the […]

2018

Winter                                                                         Stent Moon Buddy Paul Strickland, living in Maine very close to New Brunswick and the Bay of Fundy, has a year theme: Bumping into Wonder. I haven’t discussed it with him so I’m not even sure what a year theme is and I don’t know why he chose random acts of amazement. (though it’s […]

H-Mart

Winter                                                                       Stent Moon SeoAh and I went to H-Mart yesterday. Not sure if I’ve written about it before or not. H-Mart is a New Jersey based, Korean owned Asian grocery chain. It has two stores in the Denver metro. An obligatory part of a SeoAh visit is at least one visit to H-Mart. These are […]
