It's been a nice quiet (mostly) Sunday. The grandson was here to spend the night on Saturday and his mom came to fetch him around 11 AM. We had a nice (although short) visit. We made pancakes and scrambled eggs for his breakfast and spent a little time out in the garden as well before she got here, so it was all good.
I harvested tomatoes and green beans and bell peppers from the remains of the garden. There are still a couple of eggplant out there, but they don't look great. Still more bell peppers too. I ground the tomatoes (mostly Romas and yellow Brandywines) and then cooked them down before putting into the freezer. I made stuffed bell peppers for supper and put the rest in the fridge....tomorrow I will cut them into strips and freeze them. The stuffed peppers were delicious. As a side dish, I cooked fresh garlic and onions and green beans in olive oil over pretty high heat. A little cracked pepper and sea salt and they were heavenly. I am ALWAYS grateful for fresh vegetables....
Rereading my last post, I feel a little sheepish. I sound like a petulant child sometimes. Especially when I know that everything will be exactly the way it is supposed to be--so skip the high drama! I am grateful tonight for optimism and for hope and for serenity. For the sounds a puppy makes when it sleeps, chasing some wild and elusive rabbit through her dreams. For the letter I got for Grandparents Day. For love in my life....wherever it comes from.
Here's to brighter days, and answered prayers, and trusting that if the Universe is giving me a sign, I will recognize it. And to feeling especially blessed.
