Continuing Onward

A healing lunch
the last bowl of soup I duplicated from my granddaughter Sarah.
Brocilli, Cauliflower, Potato, and assorted vegetables, cooked and creamed with coconut milk, blended until creamy,  so good.
My favorite Sweet Potato crackers, Gouda Cheese and been probably 40 years for this drink
Bloody Mary, the best Vodka, V8 juice, olive stuffed with cheese (cannot drink a small amount of wine as it burns my mouth,  Ending with a slice of the best fruitcake I could find online (always' made my own_
So a continuing to heal meal, have gained 6 lbs, many yet to add to this small frame. eating every 2 hours

While eating I hear the tractor, been calling for days, another blessing before rain expected
and soon green wheat will fill the field.
