Ten favorite moments of 2011

1. When Anita walked in and announced, “Honeysuckle had ten babies last night!”
2. Learning that people who hate cilantro lack an enzyme which makes it  taste like soap. Too bad.
3. On a day when Ransom’s coffers are dry; a large-ish check arrives to help out with bills.
4. Ava Lou, our two-year-old granddaughter, empties all the salt and pepper from the shakers, then eats most of it.
5. When Denis learned he’d brushed his teeth after I’d dropped the toothpaste container in the toilet.
6. The William Baffin Climbing Rose is climbing and blooming 4 weeks after being planted.
7. Harvesting, shucking, processing three wheel barrel-loads of our own sweet corn at Heartbeet Farm’s.
8. Pulling a volunteer marijuana plant nearly as tall as me from the sidewalk flowerbed and using it to garnish a mojito for Sandy O.
9. Watching the The Princess Bride with seven-year-old grandson, who thought it sounded like “a movie for girls!”
10. That Jesus loved me even as I envied someone with a perfect life and hair.

Does it get any better? That just capped off my day beautifully like some pot on a cocktail.

Who ever had that mint mojito must have been mighty mellow! I am laughing my head off.

It was very good on a very hot day in July
