  1. This morning’s breakfast was plantain (the weed, not the banana), dandelion, grape leaves, mallow, curly dock, chard, carrots, blackberry,squash blossom, chives salad and two apples from the trees. God has provided beyond what we can understand.

    ๐Ÿคจ Shortage of dry cat food (Blue Wilderness, Indoor cat)

  3. Well, yes, but in this case a sofa on which to sit while I ate breakfast (which included coffee for the first time since well before I got sick) …

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Watched Unbroken last night, staying up way too late. I hadn’t seen it since the studio preview I covered in 2014, I’d spent the year-plus before that writing about the project. Zamperini was a beloved local, his family home still stands and he was a local high school grad when he first got into running and became known as the “Torrance Tornado.”

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Hoping to watch the followup tonight (I’ve rented it from Amazon) which I’ve never seen, Unbroken 2, which picks up the story of his post-war years. His story was so remarkable that they literally could not fit it into one film.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ My personal brush with Omicron/Covid is on its way out, if not already gone. I feel symptom-free for the first time in the past 8-10 days.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ My neighbors, who are more at risk for complications than I am, seemingly did not catch the infection, despite our fairly long visit in their backyard on the very day my symptoms (hours later) first appeared. Thank you, Lord.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Cool weather, the return of the marine layer.

    ๐Ÿ˜ฆ The hurricane and losses that so many have endured. May God’s presence be known in the midst of it all, including through the many helpers who are fanning out to assist those in desperate need. May the gospel be shared.
