A prep day. Started the morning feeling a bit grumpy but managed to step around it with a meditation moment and a nice breakfast of leftover salad. Shopping and baking and getting organized for tomorrow filled out the rest of the day for me.
Willi started HIS day by being called an “In-Cel Ginger Cunt” by someone who was arguing politics with him online. It made me laugh very hard. I usually hate to hear all the arguments that he gets in online with folks who are just ignorant, or worse supportive of the orange troll. But to get called an InCel Ginger Cunt was just funny. I think I should get him a t-shirt printed.
All the ignorant people can’t dim the gloriousness of Michelle’s speech, which I finally got to watch. It’s strange how the Covid times are effecting the DNC. That speeches get made in entirety without cheering or other noise from the crowd. Almost feels like the old radio fireside chats of years gone by. A chance to hear the orator in a full, simple, clean way. Gets inside you even more easily somehow. And makes me so desperate for our country to find its way to better, kinder, stronger, more inclusive and fair.
Feeling worried about all the fires… my mom is currently on stand-by for evacuation, which means horse-trailers and friends to help waiting. It feels pretty far away to be in SF and not be able to get there in a timely fashion if she needs me. Contemplating just going up there for the night, but the quarantine makes things complicated too. Trying to weigh it out.
Getting this note out early tonight. Meals on Heels is taking orders through their site: www.toasttab.com/oasis/v3. A lovely Thai Beef Salad, a Chicken Lettuce Cups plate (and tofu/vegetarian versions of both) as well as Bahn gan Vietnamese Creme Caramel and a Matcha Poundcake are on the menu this week.
Our regular menu can be accessed at www.marthaavenuefood.com Orders for Friday can be placed until Wednesday night/Thursday morning. Friday will be our last deliver day in August. We will return to service on September 1st, but I will keep you posted on our adventures during the time away from serving up the goodness. We look forward to feeing you all again soon! If you want to stock up for the time we are away, get your order in for Friday. We can even package things in freezer-friendly packaging…just make a request in the notes section.
Fingers crossed that we all are safe and sound and not in fire-harms way. Take good care of yourselves and get a little extra sleep. Tomorrow is the new moon, so it’s common for the night (and few days before) of a new moon to feel a little introspective, tired or blue. Give it a couple days and things should feel a bit lighter… or at least maybe we can see our way through the gloom a bit more. Sending out lots of wishes for safety and health and love. Hug yourselves for me xoxo
