Basil & Spindles & Squash…..Oh MY!!!

Good Thoughts for a TRAGIC day in history…..
I spent the morning in the garden picking the leaves off the stems of BASIL for PESTO making…the heady scent filling the air around me as the Goldfinches, Red House Finch, Chickadees & Nuthatches sang their varied and beautiful songs. My outside Kitty wrapping herself around my ankles as my Welsh Corgi tried to eat Basil leaves, but kept spitting them out…I felt relatively safe. This is a luxury that people in some countries don’t take so much for granted. After my batch of PESTO (YUMMY!) I plied the first yarn ever spun on the new ZEPHYR turkish style spindle, again, out in the garden with the sound of the tweety birds drowning out the traffic on West Eleventh Avenue.
Thought for the day: Any day that I am not living in SYRIA is a really GOOD day!Basil
