Happy Easter!

Today it rained and rained and rained.

In the morning I went to mass at an adorable white clapboard church. Maybe 120 folks, and the place was jam-packed -- one row of extra foldable chairs set up in the aisle, and barely enough room to walk. A fire-hazard for sure, but it was nice to be there and be sitting so close to the person next to me on a holiday that I love so much.

As called for by the occasion and the weather, I used the inside time as an excuse for a cooking extravaganza.

... try number two with the muffins

... then yogurt from Heritage Farms' Raw Milk

... next feeding my sourdough starter

... deviled eggs

and finally spinach paratha from Julie Saini's awesome cookbook...

And then, around 6, we went up to the farmhouse for dinner with Peter and Susan where I got to enjoy my very first Synergy chicken. Peter and Colin got down to the talk about political economy and complexity and I threw in my two cents about ethnomathematics.

Back to the watertower in time for a nice chat with my lovely cousins.

A pleasant, pleasant evening overall.


  1. I was about to click on the "Like" link on Facebook, but realized there was more. What are you up to these days, Ms. Daniels?

  2. Hey! Well, you can see a little bit of what I'm up to: living it up on a farm, learning to grow food and live life well. It was great to see you the other day. How is the Fbook treating you?
