It's my birthday today. A whole 31. I must say, I feel very young and excited about life. I feel like I am on a great journey.
I have been wanting to grow my own vegetables for a long time. So what better day than my birthday to start.
Since we don't own this house, I don't want to plant in the garden. I am going to be using pots.
So I went out and bought: Baby pumpkin - because I love pumpkin Red capsicum - because it is so versatile Dill - my favourite herb which takes me back to my mom's kitchen Thyme - Sohail's favourite herb; and he is loving cooking at the moment Oregano - because I love Italian cooking
Oh, and I bought a plant to donate to Annie's kindergarten. I won't see it much, so I thought I would take a photo of it too.
I will wait for Annie to come home and we can plant together. Nothing like children learning about the real world and getting themselves dirty in the process.
"Who else weeps out of the intense desire to be with us while we eat? And how sadly we will say someday, 'Nobody cries now to have me near him while he falls asleep.' Only a child says every night, 'Don't leave me; stay with me!' and the adult answers, 'I can't, I have so much to do, and anyway, what kind of nonsense is this?' and thinks the child must be corrected or he will make everyone a slave of his love.
Sometimes a child wakes in the morning and goes to wake his parents, who would rather sleep; everyone complains about this kind of thing. He slips from his bed, approaches his parents and touches them lightly. Most often they say, 'Don't wake me up in the morning!' and the child responds, 'I didn't wake you up, I only kissed you.'"
