It is such a pleasure to watch the changes in our garden as the days go by.  I think it’s so important to see the beauty, to appreciate the incremental changes, and to realize that – for most of us – life goes on as our Winter turns into Spring.

Also, I did not realize that our peonies (in the last photo) are so ugly at this time of year?!

Signs of Spring

Signs of Spring amidst a global pandemic.  I find myself seeking out beauty (however small) to stay positive during these dark days.  March 2020.

OMEBs

Reading the Smith College alumnae magazine, and I came across this acronym.  OMEB – Ordinary Moments of Extraordinary Bliss.  I love it, and I’m going to spread the word (literally).

Lunches at home

One of the real pleasures of working from home is that I don’t have to get up super early to pack all my meals.  Since I am doing intermittent fasting at the moment, I block some time on my calendar at 10 am, and I make a meal from the leftovers we have on hand.  Lately that has involved a lot of salad, which I vary with radicchio, endive, and other greens, as well as whatever meat we have left over.  I often mix in with radishes, peas, sliced tomato and some delicious new cashew cheese that adds a wonderful bit of salty taste.  It’s really satisfying, healthy, and beautiful too!
