harvest, progress, and opa!

Three beautiful things from this past week:


1. Three strawberries and three pods of peas — so sweet, Rudi says, they make you want to eat peas — from my garden.

2. Rudi’s recovery from hip replacement has been nothing short of miraculous. Seventeen days out from surgery and he’s gone from walker to crutches to cane to being told by his physical therapist to try to walk without his cane as much as he can. The surgeon who did his original repair saw him today and thought he was six weeks out based on how well he was doing. We expect there will be some setbacks, but in the meantime we’ll take this.

3. We took some time Saturday afternoon to enjoy to our local Greek festival. We listened to a traditional band, browsed imported wares, bought some baked goods, and ate freshly baked honey doughnuts and a light lupper (for those unfamiliar with the term, it’s a portmanteau of lunch and supper, not a Greek delicacy) and then strolled the two miles home.

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

Beauty in a long weekend. The return of our favorite farmer to our local Farmer’s Market. And, weather that is not exceedingly hot! Seems like the perfect start to summer!

how splendid that your R is healing so quickly and hopefully fully! I bet it was quite the challenge (and pain). I wish I had a garden but I don’t as of yet…I’m not the gardener!

@karen: It is splendid! And I hope someone plants one for you soon!
