catnip/dandelion pesto

I had my first spring meal, and it was so, so good. After a winter of eating bland, sad vegetables grown just for the sake of making money, eating spring greens right outside my front door is like coming home.

I made catnip/dandilion pesto. It’s what happens to be growing prolifically on my yard right now. The catnip counters the bitter dandelion. I had on top of oat pasta, vidallia onions and kidney beans. Hmmmm good!!

These little guys were happy to let me and the boys sit close by and listen to their happy chatter and watch their busy flutterings.   Nothing like the prudish ducks who make a bee line out of the pond as soon as we come into view.

They look like they might be Golden-Crowned Kinglets.

old ford trucks and teenage crushes

Bouncing across alfalfa fields
Laughing, teasing
Sitting next to my teenage crush
Springs showing, sitting on a board
Holes in the floor
Engine sound as ever
Sweet summer days of bygone youth

Most magical day!

I had a magical day!

I met the most beautiful soul.  He made me feel precious.

Sweet Sam went swimming for the first time in 2 years since having a frightening experience while swimming.

I ended this amazing day around a fire and watched the meteorite shower and northern lights.

I feel blessed, and am overflowing with gratitude.
