shooting stars


One of my favorite summer vegetables is okra. More than any other in our garden, I look forward to watching the buttery blooms form fruits like shooting stars, and gathering handfuls each day. Early this morning around 5am I got up and stood on the balcony hoping and waiting and yes, I saw one meteor. It was a gift. I wasn't expecting to be able to see any here in town, especially with the street lamp blaring, but one dashed beside the little dipper.

We have a full weekend ahead, today we celebrate a house project my husband's company just completed, wahoo! Then on Sunday celebrating and remembering the life of his grandma who passed away this week.

I'll be taking an extended weekend so see you back around Tuesday,
