diluvian which our plucky heroine feels a bit like the Red Queen running faster and faster just to stay in one place; it seems like those dang boxes and bags of junk just keep multiplying...

While the rain deluge outside played hob with my numbers of steps walked today, there were instead three bags and a huge box of junk sorted through... While most of what was found was pretty easy to discard, (some to recycle, some to garbage, some to Goodwill,and a small pile of papers and textila to keep) the book reports and creative writing from middle school, and the travel diary from a trip we took to New Brunswick in 1961 are heading into my personal archives.

In the interest of trying new foods, these are steamed Okinawa sweet potatoes. They have a unique savory undertone in the expected flavor, and are chock full of extra nutritional anthocyanin goodness as witnessed by their VIVID purple color. Can you imagine a sweet potato pie made from these! This morning, another batch of candied peel was made, so another batch of quincemeat can happen tomorrow (once there are more raisins, and a pear) The tiny house fridge is now reconfigured for turkey defrosting. Only had to clear off half the interior, so may be able to avoid transferring all the food into a cooler for the rest of the week. Still, a fourteen pound bird is a rounded awkward thing, and a plinth to raise the fridge to a more helpful level may be moving higher on the priority list...
