first harvest, substitution, and surprise sick food
posted by soe 11:21 am

I dozed off last night without posting, so here is a belated list of three beautiful things from my past week:

Violets in My Garden

1. The strawberry plot in my garden is filled with violets. I pick a bunch to enjoy at home.

2. I screw up the time of an event and miss it. So instead I sit in the sun at a cafe with some chai and a piece of blueberry chocolate pie and read.

3. Rudi’s been under the weather this week and was particularly unhappy yesterday evening as I was leaving work. My go-to sick food comes out of a packet, but his is homemade chicken soup like his mom makes, which clearly I’m never going to prepare. So I stop at the Greek place near our house to pick up their homemade chicken soup for supper without telling him that was my plan.

And a bonus for being late:

4. One of the things I hate about ski season is that unused skis sit behind the door to our apartment and keep it from fully opening, which makes getting my bike in and out difficult. (This is less a problem in the dead cold of winter and more so when it starts to warm up a bit.) I arrive home from work one evening to find that the skis have been put away and the door opens wide once more.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
