Gratitude Friday

newroof1. A new roof. The install process uncovered corrosion in our furnace vent, so we also had that replaced — thankfully before it caused any real problems.

pie022. Pie season. This week it was berry and peach. My favorite way to eat peach pie is to mix a slice with some oatmeal and fresh peaches.

garden3. Our garden. We are getting tons of zucchini and kale and lettuce and basil, and the tomatoes and cucumbers are starting to come in.

4. Teaching yoga. I’m subbing some classes for my favorite students this week, and starting in September, I’ll have a regular Tuesday 7 am class at Om Ananda Yoga. My first class after not teaching in a few months was a bit bumpy, but I’m getting the hang of it again now.

5. Ringo Blue and sweet Sam. They drive me crazy sometimes, but I love them like crazy.

    I am so envious of your garden. I got off to a strong start this spring, but lost my momentum. Yours looks lovely! We’ve been heavy into house projects again, and I think I just can’t simultaneously sustain efforts on both fronts. I’m thankful, though, for progress in one arena. Letting go of the garden for this year and glad I can start over again next.

      It’s probably not fair to call it “our” garden, since Eric does most (all?) of the work. I go with him to buy some of the new plants, and pull a few weeds and plant some flowers, but that’s about it. I’m happy to eat what grows there though! It’s a chore designated like we do everything else — the person who likes it most or hates it least does it, and Eric loves to garden.


I'd love to hear what you think, kind and gentle reader.
