Fellowship Over Pickles
We sat down for a few minutes and sipped fresh, cold water infused with a choice of strawberry-mint or lemon-basil ice cubes. And we talked some more and unloaded jars from the canner and talked some more. Then she sent me home with pints of her sweet dill and bread & butter pickles and a quart of sub peppers and instructions on how to make chocolate mint ice cream and the promise of a loan of a book as soon as she's done reading it.
I sure did leave with far more than I brought. And to think, I get to go back next week and do it all over again . . .
