summer is upon us and the weather has turned mild and rainy, again -
we have been outside as much as we can despite;
adding stones to our garden path,
pulling weeds, planting greens,
but mostly taking Reuben on walks in the sling
for the past week and half he has had teething pains -
truly its heart-breaking to see your otherwise cheery boy, so sad
I think the mixture of fresh air, distracting sights
and the fabric to chew on is comforting for him.
the house is right now filled with fresh smells -
dahl simmering in the pot -
i've been pouring through this wonderful cookbook -
feeling inspired to get out of our wheat-and-sugar-rut
embrace different grains, beans, legumes
and the colourful season's produce
which right now is apricots, cherries, capsicums and eggplant....
what is the weather like where you are?
what are you reading, eating, planning for this season?
