I loved reading, that, Sarah. Thank you for taking the
time to write it.

What's O & M?

Your mother sounds much like me, except I'm not as
much into hiking, etc. I guess I did enough little
hikes and walks with the kids, though, because my
daughters, especially the young one, love it and

We did plant vegetables--tomatoes and pumpkins--easy
to plant and care for and delicious to eat. And we
tried to plant corn, but we did't really have enough
room in the back yard to space the ears as far apart
as they should be. And we planted an avocado pit which
did grow into a tree but ever bore fruit. We didn't
know there had to be both a male and a female, or that
you could graft (we did try that but it did't work)
but it was fun seeing the pit grow. Notice the only
"gardening" we did had to do with food and didn't
require any work--just plant and watch grow.

I was like your mother re cooking, too. But I had
read, when the children were very young, that if you
let your children help you in the kitchen, when they
are grown they'll like to cook and bake and you won't
have to. So I gritted my teeth and let them help and
that advice was true. My daughters like to cook and
bake.  Now that they are grown and gone I don't cook
at all.
