Recent Firsts

First walk along the river, which is literally a hundred yards from where we live.   The only thing I could think was "Why don't we do this more often?"  Yeah WHY?  I don't know, we are busy.  Well it was so beautiful and calming.  Nature does something to me, (serotonin maybe?) it makes me calm down, think clearly, and just give me a better perspective.  It also makes me feel more connected to God and inspires me to pray and be thankful.  Especially when there is water involved.  The ocean, a river, even a pond, just put me there and I am in a happy place. 

A few days later it was my first canoe trip of the year.  It was a very special one as well because my much loved cousins, Aunt & Uncle and  my 82 year old Grandpa went with.  We went down the river pictured - the Clarion, and had a great time. 

Another first, Heirloom Tomatoes!  I have been waiting so patiently for them!  Ahh... and it was everything I had imagined.  I think it is going to be a good tomato year. 

I sliced that thing up with some chopped basil, S&P, and olive oil.  Yum and more to come!
