food and everything
now that they've just been touched by frost, passionfruit are at their most flavorful. today, i made jam with some fruit i collected by the spillway, and my kitchen smells like liquid sunshine.
i have some mission figs from a tree i found on campus, waiting to be filled with chevre and grilled on rosemary skewers. i have a pile of opuntia fruits, pumpkin seeds drying on a screen, and some big, golden apples.
early next year, my husband will receive a big raise, but that money will all go toward my medical treatment. money's tight, and that's unlikely to change.
i feel like i should call my mom and thank her for the way she raised me.
