gratitude and good things
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments and emails and texts and tweets about my last post. Fritz was such a part of our lives, that I couldn’t NOT write about him that way. The words just needed to get out. I am grateful to you for reading it and for letting me get that post, those emotions, out there.
Through your words back to me, I felt your hugs. And I’m doing better. I really am.
I’m sharing a few good things with you today, things that have brightened up this month for me. There’s no recipe in this post, just a little list. A happy list.
Good thing #1: Those tomatoes up there? Those are from our raised-bed garden in the back yard. I’ve returned to my same pattern of checking them, almost daily, for any little change in color from green, to the yellowish-orange you see in the photo, and finally, after what seems like an eternity, to red. I’ve already harvested the first two cherry tomatoes from another one of my plants, immediately popping the little sun-warmed orbs in my mouth right off the vine. Fresh bruschetta is right around the corner.
Good thing #2: This lovely kitty – Mitzi. She and Fritz were litter-mates, and she’s doing just fine right now. She’s more loving than ever, and I hate to say this, but I think she may be happy she’s now an only cat.
Have a lovely weekend.
