Today, I’m grateful for frozen fruit in my morning shake.
Most of the fruit in my shake is fruit I froze myself. Some is from my garden and some is from a friend’s. Freezing it thickens the shake, making a very satisfying breakfast accompaniment to a bowl of steel cut oats. 🙂
Today, I’m grateful for a friend sharing her gifts of abundant ripe raspberries and beautiful painting talent.
It’s not often that one receives two generous blessings in the same day from a friend. Dawn grows a wildly amazing garden and offered her raspberries for my picking pleasure. She also created beautiful watercolors as she practiced pandemic art while out of work recently. And I now have a unique dragonfly to hang on my wall. Two blessings. One lovely friend. 🙂
Today, I’m grateful for green beans from the garden.
I was about to give up on my bean plants this summer. The teepee structure I roped together for them got blown sideways during a recent storm and the plants didn’t seem to want to produce any beans. So, I stopped looking. What a surprise to find them covered with beans when I finally checked again the other day. 🙂
I’ve tried growing potatoes on & off for years. This year, I’m trying again. It’s pretty easy, but it can be disappointing when blight or potato scab taint the crop. This year, I’m finding a little of both, but I’m still getting edible produce. 🙂
