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.
