The stack of to be read books:
- The Book of the Maidservant
- The Catholic Home: Celebrations and Traditions for Holidays, Feast Days, and Every Day
- Home Economics: Fourteen Essays
- Sex, Economy, Freedom & Community: Eight Essays

- Lettuce from my mother's planters is finding its way into salads.
