Marlene and I got up at the crack of dawn. Our friendly rooster next door helped as few can sleep through his cantor. We got to the land, and continued our ritual of weeding, which I find strangely meditative and fulfilling. After three hours, we checked on the fruit trees, corn etc. we had planted; they are all doing very well. We call it a morning and go up to our neighbor to ask him for suggestions on where to find grass seeds or plugs to plant. Mr. Winston generously offers us some of his grass plugs, which we thanked him for and went back to the land to plant. When we returned home, Marlene said she would bathe the dogs and proceeds to shampoo and hose down our bundles of joy. I decided to do a few loads of laundry, and make dinner. Marlene thought dinner was magnificent as she ate steamed red snapper with tomatoes, crispy green beans with rosemary, slightly ripe roasted breadfruit and avocado. All is well as another day slowly crawls to an end of colourful burst of oranges, russets, reds, and yellows with streaks of purples. Joy and Happiness are Blessings I send forth.
