229: Lifting the Lamp Once More

Let's just get this out of the way right now:


The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Put a Lid On It:

Still prepping for the next cherry harvest. It's time to start getting your materials and spices and supplies together for the spring canning.

Aw Shoot!

Still unhealed. Using My Fitness Pal app with good success, but I am thinking also of reviving my podcast "Running Dog" to prompt me to run again.

Make YES Happen

Something I Really Like:

Pokémon Go Plus. Feed your Pokémon addiction! Okay, so it is sold out again  on Amazon.


I still love my job. Audit coming up, so I may sound like a wreck next week... We are all well here!
