right now

Sometimes I wonder what the heck people were thinking when they settled here in the Dakotas.  Long, frigid winters. Regretfully short growing seasons.  Crazy wind.  No trees.But right now I know the answer: rhubarb.  Rhubarb, people. (Ok, the government’s offer of free land might have had something to do with it, too.) 

All too often I find myself inhabiting the lands of Someday and Might-Have-Been.  Right Now is an exercise I try to practice here every Tuesday, an attempt to let go of anything that is holding me back from paying attention to the beauty and wonder in the life I’m living right now.  Feel free to join in with a comment or a link to your own post!

  1. Sounds like where we live *grin*. Our winters aren’t frigid but they’re dreadfully wet and drawn out. I’m trying something new this year and using row covers on my garden to see if it will speed up the growing and keep my veggie babies warm as we have wind all summer and a terribly short growing season as well. Oh well, I’m crossing my fingers 🙂

    Enjoy all that rhubarb!! Definitely a wonderful. treat to have pop out of the ground every year with no fuss and it’s so giving isn’t it. We’ve been making pies, cobblers and juice with it and I’m hoping to try some rhubarb jam this time to 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

  2. Beautiful! I just bought some rhubarb yesterday for the first time from the Farmers Market. Thinking a rhubarb based refreshing iced drink of some sort….
