Yesterday was grocery day, and it was also the day I found a bag of tomatoes by my back door. This morning, I looked in the fridge and just felt good. Tomatoes, cucumbers, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, all clean, colorful and shiny lay there just waiting on me. I had fragrant basil picked from my sister's backyard garden. There was fresh mozzarella, aged cheddar and a little container of real cream. Feeling healthy, virtuous and decadent when you're deciding what you'll have for breakfast is a great way to start the day.
I just finished a mid-morning snack of sweet red cherries and have decided to share the wealth. Instead of tossing the pits into the garbage like I usually do, they're going in the yard. Let the birds and squirrels indulge. Who knows? I might even get a little cherry tree from the process. Wouldn't that be fun?
