Part of the enjoyment this season is the visits from our shadow edge neighbors. We’ve been giving the deer fruit and veggie scraps close to our fence and barn to catch more of them closer to the house. Punkn’ thinks they are Santa’s reindeer. There must have been 7 or more grazing in the snow this sunrise morning.
I am so ready to savor this year’s harvest of vegetables.
Kale—sautéed with olive oil, pine nuts, garlic, sea salt, grated parmesan, and a splash of citrus cilantro vinegar. Topped with a over easy egg.
One of my goals this year is to reestablish kinship. Since Sunday afternoons are my writing sacred space, it was a perfect time to catch up on pen pal letters and enjoy a nice cup of tea.
Bumper, 2000 to 2013
The day we said goodbye for now to you broke my heart, my diva hound, Bumper. When I came into your and your daddy’s life, I knew how much important it was to gain your love and respect. I will never smell the grass grow or enjoy a bluer sky without missing you. xoxo
