Even in a few short days, a guy could get feeling kind of hungry. My 78 year-old Mom lives with us. We are not making her do the Eat Local project. At the same time, she is unable to care for herself and get her own food. Well, the other day, after she was done eating, this whole piece of toast, and the nibblet, were sitting on the counter. Boy was I drawn to them. I lusted for them a little. But, I stood my ground and stuck to my principles. Not a close call, but an interesting experience and a sign of challenges yet to come.
I don't know if it is real redemption, and since I hadn't fallen, maybe it doesn't really matter, but I went out into my gorgeous vegetable garden and picked this spectacular head of red lettuce. Again, maybe not redemption, but clearly uplifting. I definitely need to do more of this to keep me from the possibilities of the toast; which by the way, I guess I didn't mention, is NOT local.
You may have noticed that this is a daily blog that may happen every other day. Doin' my best. So much to do! Happily!
