No, the photo has nothing to do with this post. I just liked the maple leaf. And it is a “what the hell kind of day”.
I was supposed to go with a neighbour this morning to get some farm – fresh asparagus.
I was going to teach her how to make soup.
We would have gone in her truck. She had never been to Barrie Hill Farms – a shame – since this farm is a Barrie icon.
When I was in university, I worked there during asparagus season as a picker.
She cancelled this morning before I cancelled her. I was not up to the trip as my incision is still sore and I am still wondering how I am going to shower with the bandages? She cancelled because someone needed her help.
I think I’ll go anyhow.
Why not? What the hell?
Ben is home. He can drive me. Then, I’ll make some soup.
Why not? Why am I in bed? I hate doing nothing all day – it is very, very, very boring. Asparagus is good for the soul, it is good for my immune system, and doing something has GOT to be better for me than doing nothing.
So – my goal for today is to make fresh asparagus soup – and shower. These two things will bring me back to life and help me not feel sorry for myself.
While I don’t believe everything I read, I figure, what the hell? What can it hurt to eat more asparagus? “Cancer Prevention: It is well known that chronic inflammation and cell oxidation can lead to various types of cancer. With its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, asparagus is a strong fighter against cancer in the bladder, breast, colon, lung, prostate, and ovaries, among others.” I don’t think that applies to cancer which presents via BRCA2 mutations.. but well, again, what the hell?
So – there is my day. Hail the mighty asparagus spear.
Today – it’s gonna be soup.
Because, well, what the hell?
