Fruits of Winter

I am sitting here growing by the minute, appreciating ripeness
in a way that feels so revolutionary to my heart and head.

There is a kindred feeling toward things that blossom, nature that bears fruit.
Today, for the first time Orion actually woke me at 7:11 (the equivalent time to place where we bought the final pregnancy test --- delightful!)
with some fabulous moves
and I felt (for the first time) actual limbs when I placed my palm over my womb.

If I could have seen under the dark covers, surely this dance would have translated to my sight-

magic!

Three days ago my very favorite yoga teacher came over for tea
and catch-up, bringing with her the first of the Meyer lemons from her tree.

I proceeded to make edible sunshine with those gorgeous perfumed fruits:

Meyer Lemon Curd

Organic butter and eggs from Petaluma,
lemons from an angel.

You can find the recipe


and enjoy it just as we have.

Oh my that lemon curd looks AMAZING. I'm loving this chilly morning but the though of harvesting my own lemons is pretty mesmerizing.
