Tuesday Watercooler


Hi, y’all.

Shelling peas in a bowl.

Fresh shelling peas from Avocasa Gardens.

Today I helped a friend who was down by giving her a place to nap in the pillow pit at my house. Even though she was mopey (her words), it’s nice to have a bit of company around while I work. More than that, though, hospitality is important to me and my housemate. We love when a friend, family or loved one drops by to enjoy the comfort of the space we’ve put so much effort into creating. Whether I’m sharing fresh vegetables from our garden or just letting someone chill on the back porch and listen to the wind chimes, I get back much more than I give.

Tonight’s musical selection is called “The Follower” from 7 Minutes Dead. If you like this kind of music, share some beats you’ve enjoyed recently.


Some housekeeping notes:
