Day 124: Judy

8 Aug

Today I walked over to my friend’s house to care for her kitties while she was away. I noticed a garden on the corner that I had not seen before. It was really amazing – dozens of tall, colorful sunflowers for the birds, a large squash plant (that looked a lot like a bush) and another plant that looked like it was growing “skinny” broccoli.

When I arrived at my destination, I tended to my friend’s kitties and plants and then headed back home. As I passed the lovely garden plot I had noticed earlier, I saw a woman watering the plants. I told her that I thought that her plot of land looked better than I’d ever seen it before. She commented that she was a gardener – almost as if that was a problem! She just couldn’t help making her yard look incredible – it was her gift. And as we chatted, I introduced myself and she offered me some gorgeous yellow squash from her garden.

We each have our gifts. I love to be in the kitchen – cooking, baking, creating. It is my “studio” and I love to make people happy with food. And it is such a wonderful feeling when I know that I have succeeded.

Tonight I brought an Apple Blueberry Pie to Judy, my nearby neighbor. I wanted to thank her for sharing the bounty of her garden with me. Imagine what a different place the world would be if we could all share our gifts this easily.

    This is just perfect and lovely! I will share my gifts with you daily very soon… I can help you take pictures of your pies, and you can help me take pictures of daily outfits. What do you think? 🙂


    PS I can also help with the laundry and dishes, I’ve grown quite adept at such things 🙂

    Thank you Karen, I’m the “pie recipient” on day 124. What a wonderful delightful treat to receive such delicious gift. I hope my garden bring joy to the neighborhood.
    I had a hard time stopping at one piece.
    Thank you again,
