month of abundance
13 cukes from the garden this morning, and I started thinking about abundance.
As far as food goes, I can easily eat four of these in the next couple of days. With the giant dill in the garden, I could also make pickles.
But I’ve still got some pickles from last year. I really don’t eat them much, although I did figure out how to make them crunchy and delicious, and did give a bunch away. There’s something about pickling a perfectly good cuke that doesn’t appeal to me today – all the briny saltiness….
It’s funny how – with abundance – it’s all at once. That’s the whole point. Abundance of sunshine, of daylength, of warm days, and fireflies and blueberries – everywhere now. You’re fit and healthy – all at once – right now. Everything works. You’re appreciative, or loving, and it’s big. Your mood is jolly, not just “okay”. There are 13 cucumbers, not just four. And there’s a saver in me, who wants to pack it up and save it for winter. But I don’t eat out of the freezer much, ever – and only Kevin really opens the beautiful jars of preserved foods at our house.
It totally makes sense to just eat it now. Gorge on it. Pass it around to friends. Tomatoes, sweet corn, honeydew and cantaloupe. Blackberries. Fireflies. Cucumbers. Long days where you get up early, and stay out till it’s completely dark….dive into the abundance of it all. Drop some off to neighbors. Go to all three different fourth of july parades this year – three! Fireworks every night. Crab feast, not just a few, a bushel of ‘em.
It’s June. Month of abundance. We even have most of the whole summer ahead of us.
I think I’ll dive into the abundance, float around, swim every day I can. Eat cuke salads, sweet corn and crabs. Savor the fireflies, the reverse sunsets, the long evenings on the dock, blackberries on top of ice cream. Summer.
Ahhhhh……………bundance. It’s here right now. Appreciating!
