My husband is making dinner tonight. We are having corn and salad. I asked my husband why he threw the corn husks on our back lawn. I didn’t think any animals would want to eat the husks. He said, “Don’t worry about it. When I mow the lawn the husks will be pulverized.”
Now I’m going to:
1. Go outside and pick tomatoes.
2. Iron my clothes for work tomorrow.
3. Make and start drinking a martini.
4. Make salsa from the tomatoes.
5. Make lunch for work tomorrow.
6. Do dishes.
7. Watch the movie Bridesmaids with my son. (Yes, my son is verrrrry cool!)
Here is our delicious corn:
Have a wonderful summer night!

We have three bountiful parsley plants.
These tomatoes will be excellent made into tomato sauce.
It’s hard to tell how big this orange cherry tomato plant is but I stuck my shoe in the photo for scale.
See how tall our arugula is?
Lastly, a yummy salad with spinach, arugula, beet leaves, tomatoes and feta.
I love my jalapeno peppers that grow in my garden.

“I said to myself, I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me – shapes and ideas so near to me – so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn’t occurred to me to put them down. I decided to start anew, to strip away what I had been taught.”

Ok, almost there.
Yep, that’s me.
“The absolute truth…I did not forget it. It worked its way into my brain and then stuck its foot in the door so that other bits of wisdom might follow, while back in present time, I slipped beneath the surface of the water and swam away.”
