You were going to be so impressed with my photos today. Piles and piles of fat, gorgeous cucumbers—twenty pounds of them! A whole head of garlic. A gorgeous, fresh bundle of dill. A pile of the cut-off blossom ends from the cucumbers. And a couple views of my five-gallon bucket full of future pickles. It was gonna be great.

And then I deleted the photos off the camera without telling my computer to import them.

Ah, well.

In a few weeks, I’ll show you what they look like as pickles. The recipe I used is here, times five because truly, there’s no point in making small batches of pickles around here. The last batch I made of refrigerator dills was nine pints, and it only took a couple weeks to demolish them. The five-gallon food-grade bucket I used was a gift from the very generous Tara’s Organic Ice Cream, my local artisan ice-cream store. East Bay locals, they have a shop in Temescal and one in Berkeley, and you should totally check them out. They’re on Facebook and Twitter, too, and they didn’t ask me (or pay me) to talk them up. I just really like a community business that acts like one.

Anyway, sorry for not showing you the Pickles of the Future. You’ll just have to imagine them; think a barrel of fat green things. I love having things to look forward to, and these pickles are that for me.

Speaking of looking forward, usually, I am pretty good at living in the moment. Lately, though, it seems I spend a lot of time talking and thinking about how things were in the past, or how they are going to be in the future. That’s because the present has been rather hard lately. It’s not something I can talk a lot about here (because it’s not my story to tell), and it’s one of those situations where the only way out is through, so I will continue to look forward to an easier time, but do my best to remind myself to stop and be right where I am, with joy and gratitude for the ability to share my days with you, and with the people that I love. (There’s some overlap there, certainly.)

Posts will come as I can manage it. My love for you all remains. Tomorrow, I have set aside a whole day to get caught up on blog reading. Would you help? Even if you know I read your blog, please take a moment to comment on this post and tell me some of your favorite posts lately, whether they’re your posts or other people’s. It will be something happy to wake up to tomorrow, and goodness knows I’m all for the anticipation of good things in my future.
