One of the things that I often do before a meal (at least when I'm being conscious) is think about where the food came from. When I was driving down to Santa Barbara from Berkeley yesterday, I passed fields and fields of food crops, some of which were being picked. At one field, there was a semi, with a flat bed with lots and lots of boxes of cabbage. I recognized the boxes as ones I'd seen in the supermarket – when the folks were stocking the vegetable tables with varied kinds of vegetables.
I'm in Summerland, CA, which is two towns south of Santa Barbara (after Montecito). It's a nice little town, and I'm relaxing with an old friend of mine. She's fostering many kittens (5 are in the house) which is a lot of fun. I miss my cats, and this is a way to get my fill of cat energy. There is a totally sweet kitten, called "Buffy" (of "Vampire Slayer" fame) sitting next to me purring her heart out.
Friday Cat Blogging will be fun this week.
