Dog Haiku for Humans

Cute dog picture

This is Luna.

She runs, jumps and plays. She loves her life with her humans, The Girl Who is Always Hungry and The Best Eater.

Luna wrote a haiku to accompany her portrait below and telepathically transmitted it to me through the camera lens.

you could make my day
if only you understood –
pick it up! throw it!

I really appreciate Luna’s haiku contribution, which is kicking off the Glover Gardens participation in National Haiku Writing Month (NaHaiWriMo). More to come!

Our Next-Gen Couple (Now Married!) and Their Glover Gardens Aliases

We were fortunate at Glover Gardens this summer to celebrate a wedding. Our oldest millennial tied the knot with the young woman we always knew was a keeper. Woohoo!

fullsizeoutput_16d7The newlyweds are at Little House in the Rockies in Colorado with us for a long weekend and made a wonderful breakfast quiche this morning. During our meal on the back porch overlooking aspen trees turning yellow and snow-capped mountains in the distance, they put me on the spot. Knowing I was going to post their recipe and the resulting deliciousness (watch this space!), they asked when I plan to give them Glover Gardens Cookbook aliases, along the lines of my husband’s: The Grill-Meister.  Today! Here’s what they chose:

  • The bride: The Girl Who is Always Hungry.  This is an excellent moniker for her; she seems to eat about every 2 hours without gaining weight. I could make a jealous comment about metabolism, but I try to take the high road here in the Glover Gardens Cookbook.
  • The groom: The Best Eater.  Seriously, this is true. I’ve been in this young man’s life now for about a dozen years, and he trumps everyone in my circle when it comes to an adventurous palate. But he combines his bold and courageous approach to new foods with a love and appreciation of the standards, the comfort food, the mundane, even. He just appreciates a meal.  And he doesn’t gain weight, either…

You’ll hear more about this dynamic duo, starting with the marvelous quiche they made for breakfast this morning.  But I wanted to introduce them to you first.
