  • What, me willing?

    Last week we had communion at my church and I didn’t get to be a server. I’m not sure why not, although I’m pretty sure it was nothing personal. It’s highly unlikely that the person who makes the list up looked at my name and thought “We don’t like her anymore. Ha ha ha.”


    Whatever the reason, I didn’t make the servers’ list for that week.
    When I got the email news that I had been cut, I was shocked. After all, I’m the Saturday- night-grape-juice/bread-over-on-the-left-side-of-the-sanctuary- girl.

  • Bumper fig crop after mild winter

    After I finish writing this column I need to go pick figs. Every other day seems to be right on in order to harvest ripe fruit. It takes some finesse because it is the soft texture of the fruit that reveals ripeness not necessarily the color. And picking only ripe fruit is the goal: figs do not improve if picked under ripe so if it feels firm leave it on the shrub.
