Today I love rhubarb crumble made in individual servings. I love adventurous culinary endeavors and, even though I’d never admit this to anyone but you, I’m okay with kale … most of the time. 😉 I love that last night we got to visit with old friends at the choir event and that there are now pictures of us all together again on Facebook. I love that today is October the first and I love L.M. Montgomery’s quote, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” I love how much the leaves have changed, I love that there are chances to enjoy those changes, like road trips and walks in the woods and brush runs to the city yard waste site. I love how moody the bay can get in October, her prelude to her often nasty temper tantrums in November, tantrums that have cost ships and lives in the past. I love that we mostly respect the power and majesty of the bay, love that it is part of mother nature and love that she is the environment that cradled our development. I love that Autumn and specifically October always make me think thoughts of the rugged beauty of this world. I love that this is the most beautiful planet of them all, despite the wondrous and stunning appearances of others.
Today I love that we are off to the big city to keep an appointment and then catching a potluck and annual general meeting for the dragon boat club on the way home. I love that we had such a good season on our boat, that lots of newbies came out and many of them stuck with us and are excited to return next spring. I love how much I am looking forward to next season myself, though I have a whole season of curling to get through yet. I love how busy I am in my life.
Today I love rhubarb picked fresh out of an October garden. I love that all the soup yesterday had herbs and greens from the garden in them as well. I love how we stay close to nature still in all our cooking. I love the unusual things we eat, like mixed veggies for breakfast that is served at lunch time. I love that when I eat toast it is from homemade bread. I love how even fried eggs will take me back to my childhood and how great that was to grow up on a farm when most were scrambling for the cities.
Today I love drinking coffee in the silver grey light of an October day while the smell of Rhubarb crumble permeates the whole house.
