We started "Neil Stone Updates" in January 2009 as a way to let friends and family know how Neil was faring following a car accident. Neil sustained a truamatic brain injury due to severe head trauma. In the days, weeks, and months that followed, the support we received from readers of this blog comforted and lifted us through the trials and difficulties of his healing. In January 2010 we felt it was time to make a change in the blog, and "Stone Soup" was born. Now, along with updates on Neil's progress, we've included family photos and activities. It's time to get on with life! Thanks for being a part of it!
This is our favorite place to be. If anyone says, "I'm going down to the garden," suddenly everyone drops what they're doing, someone picks up the cat, and down we go. We water a little, pull a few weeds, thin a few veggies, and sometimes we just sit and soak up the peacefulness.
Of course, Jemima enjoys it. She's an indoor cat, after all, and the excitement of being out in the open thrills her no end.
Yesterday, I was able to take some lettuce and cilantro to church to share. Hope we have lots more to give away. We're garden novices, so we've made a few mistakes, but we're learning.
