It's a plant life

I stink. I know. So essentially I am still cooking and painting a little here and there and actually carved two linoleums this past year. I also took up jogging and can pack plants up like a you know what. I just havent been photographing and actually took most of my work down from my etsy shop. I will be returning. I know that was a long hiatus. Sorry for the quality of my phone photograph.

Dont have a heart attack

Kale and fingerling potatoes
                                                             Some of my favorite foods
                                                             I just wanted to say "Hello"
                                                             I have missed you all so very much

Happy Labor Day

                                Sonnet XXXIV(you are the daughter of the sea)
                        You are the daughter of the sea, oregano's first cousin.
                                    Swimmer, your body is pure as the water;
                                     cook, your blood is quick as the soil.
                        Everything you do is full of flowers, rich with the earth.

                       Your eyes go out toward the water, and the waves rise;
                         your hands go out to the earth and the seeds swell;
                        you know the deep essence of water and the earth,
                                 conjoined in you like a formula for clay.

                                Naiad: cut your body into turquoise pieces,
                                 they will bloom resurrected in the kitchen.
                              This is how you become everything that lives.

                             And so at last, you sleep, in the circle of my arms
                             that push back the shadows so that you can rest--
                         vegetables, seaweed, herbs: the foam of your dreams
                          by pablo neruda translated by stephen trapscott

always and forever my babies

my little monkeys
scenes from this summer
kim from jikits left a link for a post called the sweet spot in one of her comments
its a great read especially if you have kids
time goes by so slowly yet so quickly
its so easy to get distracted and frustrated
so i kiss them and hug them as much as i can
and try to have fun
sometimes its not as easy as you would think
thanks kim!!
