I find comfort in many things
during harvest season~
right here in our own country corner.
Who doesn't find comfort in food~
Hearty food, like venison stew. Everything
coming directly out of our gardens~
directly from the toil of our soil~
our backs and hands ~
even the meat already tenderized from the
garden it grazed on late last fall.
In the slow cooker it goes.
The best part of this meal was sharing it~
with two of our boys~
Comfort food from God of Heaven.
Chocolate Zuchinni Cake bakes in the oven~
providing scents throughout the house.
Comfort of no other kind~
The last of the tomatoes have been picked~
ripening in boxes
awaiting sauces, stewing, canning and salsas.
A few more jars have been filled~
hearing the ' ping ' of their seals assuring
they hold the freshness of the hour they were preserved!
Finally, the perfect neck rest,
back support, good book,
We cannot forget what awaits----
the Grandloves were eyeing up these lil fellas~
in anticipation of Oct. fun.
Be still, my heart!
They find 'comfort' here.
Now, there is still so much fall work to do around the place so
now I must get ' uncomfortable ' and put my back into more lifting and planting. More cooking and cleaning.
More organizing and filing.
More~until I can relax in my easy chair with that good book
after the sun sets once again.
Find your comfort zone, what ever that may be.
I'd love to read all about it.
