A couple of random items on a cold day

First, one of those turkeys that Carol is raising at the farm has taken up residence on her front porch. Every time I go over there, he’s there, gobbling away. I asked her if she was going to eat him and she said “let’s just not talk about it”. Pretty cute.

Second – somebody had a wild drive down at the landing the other night, as evidenced by these tire marks. Woo-hoo!

The floating ice is mesmerizing. I remember sitting at the dining table on the estate, just watching it float up and down with the waves – it would completely draw me in. Why close your eyes to meditate, when you can watch such a thing? Up and down, up and down, wah wah wah……..time passes, your whole body slows, monkey mind shuts down. Nice.

We’re off to visit Johnny Oyster Seed today, to help out some of those extra smart Marylanders who are combining Christmas gifts with tax credits. A long drive to the other side of the Bay. People around here refer to it as “going over the bridge”. And the Chesapeake Bay might as well be the Atlantic Ocean, with the Western Shore being Europe as far as Eastern Shore people are concerned. It’s THAT much of a different world. And of course, with me still a midwestern urbanite at heart – I think of Trader Joes, Whole Foods, downtown Annapolis and that Fresh Market over there on Rt. 2. And although I love the idea of being completely locavore – honestly? I love Whole Foods. Especially that big new one. I admit it.
