Alyx got to pick green beans and squash from our garden and she was as thrilled as I am to see real food going into the steamer and then on to our plates. And thrilled as well at finding ripe blackberries in our neighborhood and along the geocaching trail! I remember when I first moved to this part of the country, it was remarkable to see actual food growing wild. Alyx has decided that if she moves back to the lower 48 from Alaska, she could live in our neck of the woods.
I've moved on to my next ESL module and no longer feel intimated. I do my best and let the rest go. What a concept!
