Breakfast Thoughts

There is something especially satisfying about eating locally grown food that has ripened in the sun. I have been eating apricots from Lonely Dell every morning in my smoothies. They are sweet and have that special sweet sunshine magic about them. YUM.

I have made my usual thermos of yerba mate to take to work, and soon I will jump on the bike and go there. A road closure between my home and work has made my commute substantially longer, and my legs are already bulking up. My body amazes me. All it takes is a couple weeks of bounteous exercise and decent diet, and I get strong.

The kitten is snoozing on the desk by my right elbow. My body is sore from all the yoga classes. The sun is pouring in my eastern windows. Outside the window the mint plant is blooming purple, and the hummingbirds come to feed. Their buzz awakens the kitten and she springs into huntress mode.

Where is Lonely Dell? Are more of these apricots available? Hmmmmm?

Lonely Dell is at Lee's Ferry, along the Pariah "River". There are orchards and some old buildings. It is an old Mormon farm, now only barely maintained by the Park. You need a ladder or crate to stand on, and you also must beat the Navajos to the harvest of each fruit as it comes ripe. If there is ripe fruit on the weekend of the 30th, I'll bring some back. The fruit I've gotten so far has been brought back by the put-in drivers. I have three apricots left----come on over, you can have some smoothie!

The Pariah river?
Is that really how it's spelled?
I'm glad you're healthy and in shape. I meanwhile, am beginning to have a hard time getting into my size 5 pants any more, goddammit.

I dunno. Could be Paria? No h? Anyway...
Biking for miles & miles, plus joining the yoga studio, gets me in shape pretty fast.
I can undo it in about 3 days, just give me a shopping cart full of cookies and chips and icecream.
