Katrina is on the sixth day of her water fast, so I’ve been staying out of her sight at mealtime. Actually, I’ve been picking greens and veggies from our aquaponic garden. It’s set up in a room over the garage, and I’ve been eating there to make her fasting easier. It’s going to just astound her to see how fast everything is growing. I couldn’t even make a dent in the food production. The shallots and sweet potato have gone crazy. I’ve already had to prune back the cucumbers and pick off some lettuce leaves that just got too large. The watercress is hanging over the sides of the tank as the fish gaze longingly at it.
Katrina is sitting in a big overstuffed chair, in front of a roaring fire, reading her book, while I’m in my office typing. Snowflakes are flying outside the windows. I must admit it’s a bit strange to see the lush green color with yellow and violet flowers indoors and ladybugs crawling around on the plants. Now where did they come from? The next thing we know, we’ll have butterflies flying around the house with fairies riding atop them—or perhaps dancing to the music of Snatam Kaur that plays 24/7 to keep the plants happy.
I hear Katrina tossing another log on the fire. I think I’ll go join her. Stay warm and cozy. The word is there’s a lot of snow on the way … maybe.
