Nothing new* on the kitchen situation, we had other issues to deal with today. Namely, one of our crappy cars. So. We did that.
*In fact, things are worse. The range now shorts out that breaker each time. It’s dead. Really most sincerely.
Here‘s what the journey home looked like (click to see map, and zoom in, very amusing). We ran a few quick/urgent errands, then left the POS, for picking up tomorrow. In other news, that almost-20-year-old bike I’ve been riding might get replaced. Right, as a friend pointed out today, we can’t make rice pudding on it, but the price is better.
More details to follow. Just know that as you’ve been reading all of those mileage updates, I’ve been pedaling them. On a two-wheeler which was close to its last legs over a year ago. The tires are in such bad shape that Dan says it’s surprising I haven’t blown one by now. (Every day I roll on home he’s relieved.)
On our card altar though, just when we needed it most, a breeze of promise wafts in.
“Goddess Of The Unknown ~
A new chapter of your life is around the corner; remove fear & embrace the unknown.
Only through the darkness of night are we able to see the beautiful tapestry of light which stems from the stars above us.
This card is here to help you ease your fears about the future and of the unknown. Even though you presently cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel, you are being urged by the Goddess to trust. You are always on the right path even when you think you’ve strayed completely off of it.
A major chapter in the story of your life has recently come to a close and an exciting new chapter is about to begin. Through the current emptiness, the seeds of a fertile new future sprout through. Soon, you will see the light shining as brightly as ever.”
I love all the hope that this message brings with it. And this time, it felt okay to leave the illustration as it was.

Today’s (and Yesterday’s) FLP:
was Michigan and this one.
Not someone we knew, sadly. On the plus side, not someone we wouldn’t want to know either.
as noted above, was a walk, for either 3.92 or 4.22 miles (depending on which fancy phone program you believe). Our “moving” time was one hour 37 minutes and 48 seconds, with an average speed of 2.58 (or 2.59) MPH.
the deputy continues to fart around with our broken appliance (smoke was seen coming out of it last time I was up there). He’s just now dragged out the grilling tops (it’s an ancient JennAir that has, truly, NEVER worked right). Yeah, this can’t be good.
