Now and Then
I unplugged the iron, turned off the sewing machine and ran out to the garden to supervise the harvest before the rain started. We picked tomatoes, basil, cucumbers and carrots. We decided to have a feast and use every dish that we could in the preparation. During our meal, we listened to the rain. It reminded us of Vancouver. We asked littlest kitten what her memories were of that other life. She quite accurately described walking to the village to get her favorite foods, sushi, Indian and bubble tea. She remembered taking the bus to Grandville Island to pick up our produce and some treats and hanging out there listening to musicians. We talked about how different our life is now...here. It's been just over a year since we moved back to Utah. Vancouver seems like a dream. The rain is still making me homesick for my friends there and that other life.
Our feast was delicious and now I have a lot of dishes to do then a little quiet time sewing and listening to music. I'm glad to be here but I miss there too.
I will post about the artwork I've been doing soon.
