Dropped my ballot in a ballot box Yday (Sunday) and this afternoon I got a notice that my ballot has been collected (and signature verified) #CaliforniaPrimary #SuperTuesday

(For a person who urges everybody to return ballot early I sure took my time. The family health situation = big wrinkle!)
Susan A. Kitchens @susan
#IVoted finally finished my ballot. Agonized over Prop 1 in California (the bond measure for mental health n housing) and listened very carefully to several groups that oppose and why they oppose.

Watched the Bedlam movie about hollowed out mental health system and yet and yet and yet.

Finally caught up with all the snail mail that arrived while I was near hospital-land w one of my sibs.
When there are four open seats—
US Congress #CA31
CA state assembly #AD41 ,
CA state senate #SD25 ,
oh, and US Senate #CASen
the direct mail volume is huge— 1+ inch over 2 weeks #CaliforniaPrimary

I harvested my lunch! #gardening
When you say to yourself in December, I want to eat (even) more salads— how do you make that lifestyle change? Sow seeds. This is not instant change but lasting change.

Cut and come again harvesting to cut outer leaves of lettuces is now becoming my go-to method.

The recent #PostcardsToVoters campaign I worked on had an easy-to-write message to Dems in #CA27 (Let’s flip blue!)

bc Life is Life-ing I had to return addresses. I gave back 1 of 3 lists I’d ordered. While writing on list 2 in hospital lobby, got a text “already reassigned”—it’s a group effort!☺️

#DailyPictureTheme
Got a partial collection of wrist bands from the hospital where oldest bro is— a different color each day.
This is #WorryCrafting : do I try to #weave them or do something else? (The stickers w my face are stuck in my calendar)
Do I keep up this wristband craft farce or toss em?

#DailyPictureTheme The last 2 weeks, I increased walking amount when I went to be at a family house to help out, incl walk the dogs.
New thing I #learn from this— It doesn't take many days of higher pace count for me to feel more capable of walking uphill in the San Gabriel Foothills. Just 10 days!

Organic #waste from dinner’s mise en place. Tonight’s dinner peels, tomorrow’s compost:
Broccoli skin and potato peels and some parsley that’s old enough to say, meh, out it goes. Got new growth on the plant from recent rains, so it’s a bit of brightness for you. #DailyPictureTheme

Brother brought some funny refrigerator magnets and gave them out. Here is a collage collection of them. Please enjoy.

I run a tight shipwreck!

My housekeeping style is best described as “there appears to have been a struggle…”.

Snuck away to a blustery beach for an hour of Me-time and let the #Churn within meet random flotsam washed ashore from stormy ocean #churn . Including, um, this bicycle seat? Walked in the wind, and the rain, and will now resume looking after the ones I’m looking after. #CArain #SoCal CAwx

This was from previous storm in #SoCal where a puddle in the street bids you look down in order to “look up” at magic time near sunset. More of that coming with current storm.

Missed #DailyPictureTheme , #forge edition but the act of heating and moving metal appeals to me. Went to a demo of Adams #Forge (based in Los Angeles tho they’ve moved a little farther away to Simi Valley)
This is on my To Do list.

Searching twitter for Jack Dorsey has some delicious commentary.

I love how we all see Jack Dorsey next to Beyoncé and Jay Z
but he’s not identified by talking voices.

Oooh! A recipe for kale! Yay! Or spinach. Love it! Not quite ready to try this recipe, but when these lovelies are a little more mature yes, yes I will be.
📸 1: kale at left of little semi circle, rest of green are 2 spinach varieties.
📸 2: another kale plant in garden bed.

Sunny day today in #SoCal that's a relief. Went out walking in the brisk air. We have a break from weather falling from the sky for some days.

Outside just now: Cloudy near San Gabriel Mountains, blue skies & puffy clouds elsewhere

#Gardening In time for this rainstorm I set up a garden tunnel because critters came and ate my darling baby lettuces & kale.

Transplanted replacement lettuce+kale before the deluge. On the first sunny morning after 7.56 inches of rain, they’re doing fine.

Since netting went up, no plant nibbles!

I filed a bug report re: 2FA—#6379. At first was gonna rate it a ho-hum cosmetic fix [Dark Theme, black text on dark bkgd], but when I adjusted image to read the text, I changed it to URGENT.
Attn @Cbouzy & @phil 🚨🚨⚠️🚨🚨

SpoutiPeeps, change to light theme If you're going to work with 2FA!!
Susan A. Kitchens @susan
Just changed my password and added 2FA (am getting the hang of using iOS built-in 2FA)
I didn't need to log in again in this browser, which was interesting.

Gonna check Spoutible on other devices
iPhone mobile browser
iPad app + mobile browser.

From the #DanielSwain #WeatherWest “office hours” this eve on YT, a view of Pacific showing the atmospheric river bringing tons of moisture to #SoCal #CAwx #LAwx #LArain
3 pix: 1st marked up, 2&3 views of same area using different methods.

From south of Hawaii, a river of moisture moves toward LA
Susan A. Kitchens @susan
Very similar to what I learned this evening; I watched livestream on YouTube with Daniel Swain. He zoomed out on satellite views of the Pacific in order to show the huuuge #AtmosphericRiver feeding moisture to #SoCal in the way of #LArain #CAwx

I’ll provide that imagery in a QS to this

So just as Daniel Swain says that there are concerns about what is going to hit #SoCal , we all got a #FlashFlood alert blasted to our phones. (2nd px: all the warnings rn)

The storm is slow-moving and will park and stall over Los Angeles metropolitan area #CAwx #LAwx #LArain #AtmosphericRiver
Susan A. Kitchens @susan
A live “office hours” with #WeatherWest Daniel Swain on his YouTube channel.

Power outages, wind (gusts over 90 mph!
Central CA coast)
A California Transmission Emergency declared for Northern California. ISO Grid status.

“Per http://poweroutage.us, more than 550,000 customers (equating to around 1,375,000 people by my math) are now experiencing wind-related outages in California--and these numbers are rapidly increasing as winds escalate across SF Bay Area and Central Valley” #CAwx
