*A birthday present for Erika's Mom
*Hand-sealed birthday card
*Collaged, recycled jewelry box wrapping with a bow made out of dried maple leaves.
*Dinner: Yellow onions, garlic, and fresh oregano and basil from my garden cooking in olive oil.
*Slightly roasted, just the way I like it.
*Fresh tomatoes, diced.
*Black olives, sloppily minced
*Served over multi-grain radiatori and garnished with fresh basil.
*To finish: the last slice of my pie made with fresh, locally grown rhubarb and plump strawberries.
Now, I'm going to curl up with some trashy TV and my knitting.
