A Brief Glimpse

There was yesterday......
And then there was today:
  • I made lamb stew with Sunday's leftover leg of lamb for supper tonight.
  • Even though that seems like a cold blustery day meal, and today is cloudless with gentle breezes, and I've seen my children run by in the tall green grass with barefeet.
  • Buttermilk biscuits were made with tablespoons of butter cut into bite-size pieces.
  • When the hot biscuits came out of the oven, I could not resist and ate one.
  • Slender stems of asparagus roasted in the oven with a tad of olive oil. By the way, asparagus can be eaten with the fingers, I personally was delighted to find this bit of information.
  • After calling the children and my husband to come eat and waiting for at least 10 minutes without results, I ate alone. The longer days and warm, sunny weather keeps them satisfied outside until either darkness falls or everyone else goes in for supper.
  • Yes, it was different, but I had Bing Crosby on CD to keep me company. It was fine until he began singing "Jingle Bells" and "I'll Be Home For Christmas". I laughed alone too.
  • Came upstairs to discover my husband in the office, it seems he did not hear me call, so I will now go and fix his supper. But I will sit with him and smock....he will not need to eat alone.

Funny how little things scurry into my mind these days. Things "au nouveau" that prick interest, the voice in the back of my mind ...
