Of Pears and Pairs and Owls

If today had a song, it would go a little like this...
"The owls and the pears went to lectures,
and ate a beautiful pea green soup!"

I have spent all evening making vegetable barley broth to ward off November coughs and colds, and listening to the lovely tunes of Benjamin Francis Leftwich, an able-fingered friend of a friend.
An owl on the outside and an owl on the inside! And a couple of sweet organic conference pears. I love the name; it invites you to take a sweet little bite and have a lovely little talk.

I came home to Canadian airmail waiting for me on the doormat from my favourite person in all of Canada. Thank you, darling!

Adorable pictures! I love owls, I have owl earrings that I wear when I need a boost of happiness. I am a bit bitter with pears at the moment because yesterday I took some to work for my students (I was teaching them about fruit) and couldn't find a knife..so had to cut them up with scissors - was a messy effort.
