Despite regularly-scheduled content and the regularly-scheduled grumbling of our stomachs, it's a hard day to care much about food. Here's where our heads—and our hearts—are instead:
was thinking this morning that light at the end of a tunnel doesn't come to us, we have to take action and get to it...wrote my sheriff, county executive, and legislature last night to ask some questions...and going to chat with our superintendent shortly about teaching some inclusive cooking classes...don't mean to blah blah blah about my own to-do list, this is just to say that it feels positive to be proactive always but especially now.
