A Slice of Life



One of my favorite times of day is late afternoon when I prepare dinner: the satisfaction of slicing and chopping vegetables, choosing how to put it all together, the soothing angle of the sunlight. It's a comforting ritual; something that has to be done (for the most part) and so allows for time to stop and focus on the here and now.


What is your favorite time of day?

I love zucchini, but for some reason the only way I can eat yellow-crookneck squash is carmelized the way you would carrots. But they are beautiful. Maybe I need to grow some next spring.

Right before I fall asleep, all cuddled up with my love.

Yum, I love squash.

My favorite time of day is right when I get up. The day has so much to offer right then. By the time I've had coffee and breakfast and finished reading the newspaper the glowy-ness of the new day ends and reality sets in. I do love afternoon tea while making dinner as well!
