This week's CSA share: whole chicken, dozen eggs, broccoli, lettuces, greens, strawberries, radishes.
I am grateful for:
-- kind friends and family, particularly in the face of feeling alone and kind of blue.
-- episodes of sweet children's shows, an enjoyable home library, Pediapops, and other niceties (indoor plumbing, washer & dryer, air conditioning, telephone, internet, sand & water table and other yard toys) that make being homebound with a sick child all week ever so much more bearable.
-- having put in the remainder of the front garden! (tomatoes, cucumbers, cantaloupe, volunteer pumpkins, okra, limas, wando peas, butternut squash, zucchini, red peppers, etc.)
-- a mate that works elsewhere so I can work here.
-- my friend Jolie, to whom I wish a most happy birthday today.
-- all my beloved Chicks, who I don't see often enough, but remain a formidable force in shaping me to be who I am, and who I hope to become.
-- roasted cauliflower, a delicious discovery.
