I awoke in the gray with light spits of rain and my neighbors are using my driveway for a garage sale so the dog is wuffing and herfing because DANGER DANGER. He barks and I think I'm having a heart attack.

Today I'm making perfect protein salad and chocolate chip cookies and African peanut soup. I already made my secret tomato sauce and it's in the freezer. Last night I made a huge long loaf of bread for French toast and hazelnut chocolate spread which I've been saving for special.

And Ms Moon, I'm taking some pickled okra to share with the people I love most in this world. Your okra.

I love to cook for my family. I hardly get to anymore. And I make huge amounts even though I only have two kids. But they have spawned and there are friends coming too and I get to see a few babies I delivered.

I'll come back next Wednesday ready for August and 17 due dates. That's a lotta babies. August and September are the busiest months. Count backward, people and you'll see why.

Is it not a perfectly beautiful Saturday? Cool and cloudly the way summer is supposed to be.

SEVENTEEN DUE DATES? Jesus, woman. Oh, the fucking which goes on during the holiday season.
I hope they like my okra. I'm about to (or as we say here in the deep, crazy south, FIXING TO) cook some okra and tomatoes with onion and peppers. It'll be good. I didn't grow the okra but my friend Tom did. He picked it today.
I am one lucky woman. And more lucky to know you.
Love...Mary
