Our Roots 🥕

| Filed under Relationships

The first root veggie Jerry pulled  from our Monroeville garden is a carrot. It tasted sweet and fresh. It’s been years since I’ve been able to garden. Jerry is the muscle and eyes. I limp along giving advice. Somehow it is working out for us, as proven by the beginning of our bounty.


I think of the carrot as another root to tether us here, a good omen we will be happy here, enjoying each other and caring about not only what we choose to do but how we do things together.


Learning and growing individually and within our couple-hood didn’t stop once retirement began. I say let the bounty continue!
