Three Positive Things:
Tuesday, August 12th, 2014
I have been trying to pick veggies every day, so things don't get too large, especially Zucchini, which seems to grow in front of our eyes! On Tuesday, I spent the late morning to afternoons baking and cooking. With one One Size Fits All I made three full size recipes. 1. Zucchini Tea Loaves, Zucchini parm, with orange and red peppers and onions and basil; and my mom's recipe of cubed zucchini, with tomatoes onions, garlic, basil and egg and cheese (really soul food!).
Finished a poem I was working on. It's taking me several days to complete a poem.
Went to the Genesee Reading Series and heard Jules Nyquist and Claudia Stanek. Great reading. Fun seeing everyone. Bought Jules' book and John Roche's anthology Mo'Joe poems. Looking forward to spending time reading both.

Wrote letters! AND MAILED THEM. Bought beautiful stamps at the post office: Farmers Market and Songbirds. Gorgeous!
Picked a pint of red raspberries ( this is winding down now); cucumbers, yellow squash, zucchini,(all young)
basil, Blue Lake green beans (going to make green bean salad).
Bought new desk calendars for my school office! Drove around doing errands in Brockport, with marginal success. Bought a book at Lift Bridge. Spent a lot of time in there, looking and looking and looking.
Tonight 8/14/2014, is the Just Poets monthly reading at Barnes & Noble in Pittsford at 7 p.m.
Last year, we held a summer poem challenge and the 13 poets who submitted their poems will be reading their poems tonight. A year's full circle.
A lot of these poems have been published in journals, including the annual Just Poets anthology Le Mot Juste, 2014.
Looking forward to hearing these poems tonight. If you're in the neighborhood, please stop by.
