Yard Stew

Today I went outside with Emily. She was playing, doing things I used to do as a kid myself. Pulling out various weeds(and we have many types)from our yard and she made herself a Yard Stew... A little onion grass, Some flowering weeds, weeds that looked like rosemary, some bark and some blades of tall grass... throw in some berries and couple of sticks... a yard stew... How yummy!!! I remember doing this very thing. Watching her with love, and reminding myself of these sweet moments- both hers and mine. And this moment which was ours. Feeling a little sorry for those people with perfectly manicured lawns.... how much boring their stews must be.
