I see a house. It can be either an end of group townhouse or a free standing house. It is in good repair and has a lovely small back yard with small garden beds, a parking pad or a garage or excellent street parking, a deck or patio or porch. It has a beautiful kitchen, 2 bathrooms that are not cramped, and both that are in good repair and have great storage. It is in move in condition. It is in Parkville or Towson MD or near there. It is a good place to entertain and doesn't feel cramped. It has personality, and not wacked out personality like a house on acid. It is in our price range. It has 3 good sized bedrooms, and maybe a little bonus room for an office. It has a washer and dryer. It has a gas kitchen with lots of counter space and cabinets. It has an open kitchen or a pass through window, something that doesn't feel claustrophobic that has been renovated recently or is just really cool. It has hardwood floors for at least part of the house. It has an inviting basement where people would like to play board games or do witchy things or crafts. The roof, HVAC, water heater have been recently replaced. Things that would be nice? A strong community, long term tenants, a community feel, great storage, builtins, sunshine, good neighborhood. No fireplace, or a fireplace in the basement. perennial flowers in beds.
I can see this place. Every time we go see something I see more of what I want, more of what I don't want. So this writing exercise is to draw this to us. To call our home to us. And to do it as soon as possible.

My long time friend of 20 years Curt Morley passed away on Friday. I have known him since before my first marriage, we talked a lot, especially since I moved out of Chicago. People are taking up collections on give forward to bury him and put a headstone up for him and his mom. I hope to be able to come in for the funeral. I am very sad. And mad too because his luck was finally beginning to turn. He was a great friend to me and I will miss him immensely.

throw sliced mushrooms in
shave a zucchini into noodles, throw that in the pan
a little onion would have been good too, but I didn't.
throw some ripped up leftover chicken in the pan
cook it all a bit
then throw in the creamy, and the spices
a little coconut milk (the canned kind, leftover from another recipe, maybe a quarter cup or a third)
a scoop of lactose free cottage cheese
paprika, smoky salt, mixed spice (South African Spices, from Trader Joes), a little pepper.
cook until sauce is creamy. eat. yeah I have no idea what I put in there amount wise, I was really hungry.

so this is what I did:
to start with
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 small cup applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp of mixed ginger, nutmeg, and a little cloves, ground
2 tbsp melted butter
I mixed the liquid ingredients, then the powdered ones, and the melted butter went in last.
made a couple pancakes. Ick.
So I added
more vanilla and cinnamon
2 more tbsp of coconut flour
between a half and a quarter cup more pumpkin
honey- a couple of good squirts
poured it in a greased cast iron frying pan.
add sliced almonds and raisins and mix them mostly in.
bake for between a half hr and 45 minutes or until it is set. It turns out between a pudding and a pancake. it is very nice with butter and a teeny bit of honey or maple syrup. and a glass of almond milk.
