I am home. Happily home. After six weeks away everything looks very shiny and new here. I am enjoying the feeling of seeing my life in Vancouver through fresh eyes.
The garden has beautifully bloomed since I left and I have been up early each mornings (a perk of my mild case of jet lag) walking in the dewy grass, coffee cup in hand exploring the wonders of the backyard.
The blueberries are ripening, the fraises des bois are ripe and the red currents have already been picked over by the birds.
I promise a recipe (duck confit) soon. Just catching my breath and enjoying the moment for now.
