>it’s the simple things, really


  • winning the Battle of the Binky
  • the beginning of a baby eggplant, peeking out from under dry tendrils of flower
  • surviving (so far) the first week of summer school, with more challenging kids than I’ve ever encountered
  • a night I don’t have to cook
  • my girl fearlessly whipping down slides (that, honestly, she is still too little for) with a squeal of glee and a whoop
  • discovering there is a recipe for chocolate tapioca on the side of the box

it’s these simple little things that make life worth living.

    >Baby eggplants are exciting! Is it purple? I cannot wait to see if we have the eggplants still in our community garden!

    >fermi – not purple yet, more of a lavender. I bought two heirloom varieties and honestly, I don’t even know what they’re supposed to look like! Last year’s were white and lavender and scrumptious… I have such plans for these guys once they come!
