So I put on Erik's running shoes and wore then on my walk from the mechanic to home. They seemed to work okay though they're a little bit too big in the toe area.
For the past week, he's been trying to get me to wear his shoes, and we argued about it, and I said, "I don't want to change anything so soon to my long walk," but now he gets his way!

Spring is here! Today is me and Erik's 10 year wedding anniversary, but he's working 12 hours (almost done for the day) and we'll do it all over again tomorrow. But he has a day off Friday.
I'm going to bed--goodnight.

I hurt my back. First it was my upper back. Then this morning I was moving some laundry and hurt my lower back.
I went on two walks today. Now it's raining.

My scanner was plugged into this battery backup I had. But the battery backup went haywire and had to be disconnected and is now ewaste. So my scanner has nowhere to be plugged in. It has to be close to my computer because it has to be plugged into an outlet and into the computer at the same time.
And that, friends who were wondering, is why I stopped reviewing zines on my zine review site. I can't scan the covers. I suggested to someone yesterday that they send me a scan of their cover over email and then I can review their zine, and I don't know if they'll do it.
I have been having pronoun trouble lately. There's a certain friend I keep using the wrong pronoun for. So now I'm all weird about it and before I say most anyone's pronoun, I hesitate.

What Would Jesus Buy?
Today I watched What Would Jesus Buy? It's a movie about Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Gospel Choir. I feel so much sympathy toward Reverend Billy and his wife and all the choir members. I already agreed with the movie's whole premise. But it's good reinforcement. Like I don't need any more stationery, even if I do buy it for $2 at the thrift store.

Yesterday we visited Sebastopol and Armstrong Redwoods State Park. In Sebastopol we went to Luther Burbank's experimental garden. Here are a few pictures.
I had been wanting to visit Sebastopol for a long time. I had been curious about the Russian River. Yesterday we wanted to try a Gravenstein apple, but they're not in season, and we didn't come across one.
We ate at this amazing restaurant called Peter Lowell's. I had a macro bowl with lemon tahini dressing and tempeh. Erik had the anti pasti platter. The mustard greens pesto was the best! I loved the way they treated us--so respectfully but not obsequious and not smarmy. And it was kind of expensive but not so expensive I felt bad about it. Overall, it was one of the best restaurant meals of my life.

name that fruit
The guy sitting right next to Erik was listening to music on his headphones, really loud, and we could hear it. We stayed about 45 minutes when usually we'd stay for an hour and a half. When we left we saw there's outdoor seating, but it's a very windy day. I think it would be good if you wanted coffee to go, but it's not the place for intimate conversation.
