Happy Sunday. So far we are just testing ph for potatoes and peas. Soon we will test the rest of the beds for the other plants which won’t go in for weeks here yet so will report in on the rest of the testing. At least two weeks. I bought a Burpee testing kit and a friend is helping me check it all out. Studying up on it. Hopefully when they ask me “Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?” I will say, “With silver bells, and cockle shells, And pretty maids all in a row.” Pretty maids of peas.
My father hasn’t been to a dentist since 2012 (and then just to have a tooth pulled), pulled a rotten tooth out of his mouth without its roots last night, so now I have to get him to (more than likely) an oral surgeon (adjust coumadin levels) and deal with all this with his blood pressure dropping below 90/50 and him passing out/dizzy. Feeling a bit out of control, so sat in my garden this afternoon and “watched it grow.” Lovely day at about 70, but more ugly weather on the horizon, so I needed some glad power.
Hamburgers today with cheese, good enough. My dad wants pasta nearly every day and I don’t eat that, so am working on finding ways I can throw myself on a grass fed steak most days, cooking for two–like when you have a baby, I guess…
Happy dreams. To bed early for me!!

I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…
