- The Bach Unaccompanied Cello Suites. Every damn time, they take my breath away.
- Driving around with my sunroof open in the sunshine
- Fresh strawberries
- Laughing with friends about the "cone of silence" and other nonsensical things until my stomach hurts
- the GIANT carrots that I overwintered in a happy accident. True story, I discovered in my pallet garden that carrots are totally happy in the ground over the winter. I was trying to weed and prep the soil for this year's planting, and I kept pulling out these huge, luscious carrots along with the grass. I researched if this was a thing that other people had done on purpose (mostly to make sure that I wasn't going to poison myself with overwintered carrots) and most people recommend mulching the crap out of the garden to protect the carrots over the winter months, and then harvesting in the early spring. I did not do any sort of prep work in my tiny garden when fall and winter hit, but I think that actually helped me. The super long grass that had taken over acted as a sort of natural mulch. I think there are going to be some happy horses at my mom's barn!
