I’ve never really been that much into nature. Just after graduating high school, I was in a small village in Romania where everything we ate basically came from the backyard. I managed the veggies and milk okay, but when we had chicken for dinner…. I nearly lost it (very privately of course so as not to offend my hosts!) In seminary, one of my dearest friends and I decided to go camping on the beach. We packed a tent and a kitchen knife (just in case) in the trunk of Chiquita and headed to Galveston. We arrived at the campsite and realized that neither one of us actually knew how to set up a tent. So we found a nice hotel instead. Best camping trip ever!
But since living in Beirut, I’ve found myself much more drawn to a life I never dreamed I would want. I love using the herbs and eating the few pieces of fruit growing on our balcony “garden.” I like composting. I want to eat grass fed beef.
I even told Caleb recently that it would be so nice to have chickens and get fresh eggs every morning.
And then I bought some eggs and totally changed my mind about that.
