In the spirit of neighborliness, we helped our neighbor and her daughter to continue to prepare for the extreme garage sale they’re organizing. We’re happy to see our efforts have apparently paid off and inspired the previously estranged daughter to jump into the project with determination. It’s cathartic and therapeutic for everyone. They process a lifetime of stuff and memories, get it behind them, and in the process, work through some of their issues. E was busily painting their side door, while I helped a little with stuff, and then we all collapsed in the shade to hang out.
Here are some shots while puttering around the garden, where lots is happening. In keeping with Shavuot, I baked a Greek-style yogurt cheese lasagna with lots of fresh spinach and basil from my garden, with a salad of fresh greens from same.
