On a lighter note than in my previous post, since I hadn't gotten around to replacing my busted my ice cube trays, I've discovered how much FUN it to freeze an inch or so of water in a 9" by 12" baking pan then WHACK it into pieces for my Diet Coke, water, and tea. And my morning elixur: instant coffee + 1% milk. I love whacking.
A cranky, quirky, funny dame, a cronette, divided in demeanor between fizzy optimism and dispirited melancholy (I treat the latter with new projects, the latest being an early-18th century gentleman's coat that I sewed for myself out of a length of blue denim, decorated w/ brass buttons.) An entertaining speaker I am, to many a gym or library full of students, a fine writer about dead people and things historical, a middling harmonica player and illustrator of many a book, 40 or so & counting.
