I Just Want Vegetables
When your life is on one of those really smooth patches and you're just gliding through the trees, it pays to take a step back and really savor the moment. Well, the past week spent at 'the Farm' was just so delightful for all of us that it deserves a comment or two. The Squash Soup made with homegrown butternuts and all sorts of good vegetables and seasoning made by the K-grrl was to die for. The brand-new, better-than-original motorhovel door fashioned by the 'SteelKing' is beyond belief. The value of letting our puppy learn how to be a 'real farm dog' and get filthy, dig trenches, and just exhaust herself everyday was better than any 'dog trainer' we could have hired. The 'happy day' massage with my new favorite vietnamese immigrant was indeed a happy ending to my aching head. But most of all was the time given so freely and so generously to our every whim (ie. "let's go sheet shopping", "we need a dog bed", "oooh, Trader HoHo's coffee"). I think to be loved in such a way is something of an honour and I want it known how humbled I feel. Apparently, you can pick your family as well as your friends...Yay.
