Wild Asparagus at Sunset.

Tender and juicy, even at this monster size!

I had such an incredibly good day hanging out with my new friend J today! We went crystal shopping and thrift shopping and went for a beautiful walk in the coulees near sunset. It was so nice to spend time with someone that I’m able to feel so natural with. We have really similar ideas about everything from music to spirituality, so instead of one or the other of us trying to take the lead in things, we’re able to just share and relax.

I came home full of smiles and armed with fresh picked wild asparagus for supper. I just had fresh steamed asparagus, and some brown rice and pinto beans for supper. I can’t believe that asparagus as big as this was is so tender and juicy! I’ve been looking for it in the coulees for years, but this is the first time I’ve gotten lucky enough to actually find it in season. I’ll be sure to check there every year!

We’ve got plans to drive out to Drumheller and possibly do some camping sometime soon and should be spending a day down at the river bottom this week if our schedules and the weather decide to mesh.


About couleewind

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
