2017 so far

Let's see - we saw Rogue One and enjoyed it. It's always nice going to our town's theater. Plus you cannot beat the $4 tickets.

I knitted mittens and a kind of matching headband. The pattern for the headband didn't have cables so I changed the pattern, adding some.

I was sick for a few days- better now, but now Robert is ill :(
We bought a cheap electric yogurt making machine. Man, why did we wait so long to buy one of these!?  It's wonderful!  And I am trying out herbal infusions. My first is nettle. It tastes like spinach water and actually isn't bad at all. All part of trying to see the small beautiful good things in life every day. And being healthier.

I'm going to the March on Washington. I have to shout out thanks to some of you blogging friends -  I'm able to take the bus from my town and back! Your help is awesome in every sense of that word! If you're on Facebook or Instagram, I hope to be posting while I'm at the March.  I won't be able to blog about it until I'm back, and have slept.

Why march?  Read the Mission statement here.  Pretty much sums up what I would say. This POS, and this government, this WORLD, have to see that we won't stand by when we and our fellow humans are treated as less than, who are bullied, ridiculed, demonized, and marginalized. That those officials who emboldened racism, hatred, xenophobia and prejudice in their followers will not be respected, but will be challenged.

The other night, a bunch of us got together for dinner. It was really wonderful. Being with friends these days is truly nourishing and important.

Oh and I would like to recommend again watching Deutchland 83 if you haven't seen it yet.

Anyway, enough for now.  How's your 2017 going!?

    I'm glad to hear you're going to the March, the situation in the world is definitely calling for more of these. Looking forward to hearing how it went."

    My closest pal Denise is in England now, and she wants to attend the sister march in London on Saturday but she has a family get-together to attend so she can't. Here's a link to the sister marches worldwide."

    "Carol! I'm sorry you've been ill. Take care of yourself, my friend!

    Brava on going to the protest march. I wish I could go to DC, but since I can't, Dave and I will be joining our local protest. We must resist!

    "I will think of you on Saturday! And what will the demonstration achieve? I am quite sure it will show people that we will not sit by and let this ridiculous man ruin our country. And that this is only the first step. It will inspire others to do more, to do as much as they can, in the coming days.

    We have watched parts of the confirmation hearings, and I am so saddened. These people are just beyond unqualified; where do you start? Perry? Devos? Carson? It's shocking the level of ineptitude. And for those that do have background in their field, their conflicts of interest are mind-boggling.

    I am done ranting...good luck on Saturday!!!"

    "Rant away, Elle!
    The confirmation hearings - oh man! I have watched some of them but I cannot take the ridiculousness.
    Made my phone calls and signed petitions. Will continue to do that, too. Marching, being there in solidarity, is important to me.
    Thanks so much Elle for your voice!! xox"
