Knowing, Not So Bad, Sweet
1. I know this slant of sun and this northerly breeze it tries to warm. I know this gentle song of crickets sung on a quiet afternoon. I know this scent of pears from orchards heavy with fruit. It is summer fading away.
2. Frequent visits to the bedside of Daughter #4 bringing ice packs, pills, and fruit smoothies. Our fourth and final child for wisdom teeth extraction. She's a real trooper just like her sisters. SO glad that's over. The beautiful thing? I never have to do this again.
3. I baked these wonderfully delicious Ginger-Pear Hand Pies for a friend's lunch tomorrow. I really do love to bake. I enjoy the creation and the time in the kitchen as much as the eating of it. : )
