Good for the soul

March 15.

We hiked the nature trail behind the university this afternoon and quite a ways beyond for about a couple of hours late this afternoon. It was beautiful. An early warm spring day –the woods smelled of the recent rain from last week and you could smell the distinct scent of hemlock and pine. Luma loved the hike. Tomorrow I am taking everyone to Hyner View State Park. There are some nice trails and transects there.

I made a scampi with asparagus and spaghetti for Luma and Asha made chicken and daal and there was all kinds of other foods as well for everyone for dinner. Luma also wanted me to make this sweet potato dish that I make that she likes–it is basically sweet potato baked with plenty of brown sugar and butter and some baking soda with cardamom and cinnamon and cloves–it is like diabetes on a plate — but it is incredibly delicious. I used to make it all the time when we lived in Texas. So I made that for Luma. Then Dayani wanted a fire so K cleaned out the firepit and we made a fire late at night and sat around and talked.  It is so good for the soul to spend time with my brother.
