Cooking winter memories

The breeze suddenly shifted,

the temps drift downward…

 

Romeo lugs the citrus trees back in the house
after the young tomato transplants

are covered.

 

Austin, Texas weather…

The gardeners challenge- 2014!

 

Pot of pintos on the stove with ham hock…

we’ll have cheese biscuits later, too.

 

Reminds me of my eldest son…

“What’s for dinner Mom? I’ll come make you a fire this afternoon”.

 

He loathed the cold…but loved fires.

 

I miss him today-

I won’t have that fire

 

His memory is warm and safe in

my heart.

It’s a great day to stay inside and write.

Poetess, memoir writing, essays about life; these are the things I write about. I also love to cook, so you'll likely find a recipe or two in this blog. I am passionate about Nature and family, so from time to time I will share pictures-with or without poetry.
