Operation Oysterhood: 15 May

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

— @HaggardHawks

I am growing edible mushrooms – OYSTER mushrooms! This is only my first batch, but the results so far are very encouraging and I might expand my mushroom farming in the near future :) It seems like the perfect autumn enterprise. And today felt like AUTUMN. Rain, fog, darkness, cold and general weather misery. My love made the first fire of the season for us in the evening and it was bliss. He also prepared dinner while I read a book. That is a different level of bliss. It was an altogether lazy afternoon of books and sports on TV. But I worked from about seven a.m. until lunch. It looks like I will be able to relax for most of the day tomorrow. I want to stay in bed and forget about the world. Oysterhood activated.

The news out of Palestine is crushing – the escalation of violence and destruction makes one despair. As if the pandemic madness wasn’t enough for all of us to just weep and give up hope for humanity.

I am torn between helplessness, denial, sanity-preservation and deep-seated anger. I should be growing magic mushrooms!

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
