I don’t have a post for you today because I started writing an essay about our pet triops that continually sheds its skin and I wonder if it keeps molting because it is trying to change into something that it can’t change into anymore because it’s a prehistoric something or other and it shouldn’t be alive. I’m also bothered by the fact that I called it “our pet.” And I was really into writing that topic until the mailman handed me my copy of Martha Stewart Living and I started a new essay on how much I love her calendar at the beginning of the magazine. Seven pages I wrote on the love I have for that stupid calendar.
So I’m real busy and that’s why I’m going to link up to some other things I wrote this past week in case you want to check them out.
A NYC church called Dwell (I love that name. How could you resist checking out a church called Dwell?) participated in an event called “Don’t Walk By” to help the homeless get off the streets.
A Virginia church fills baby bottles with loose change to make a huge difference.
And here I write about baking, Jesse getting his wisdom teeth pulled, and a few other things.
Now I need to get back to the sadness in shedding skin or the love of a well thought out plan. It’ll be a rough night, I can tell.
