Uncomplicated Kindness

 Uncomplicated kindness - a phrase coined by a fellow "from away" friend I made recently on the island - describes the gift we received from one of my blog readers who lives here on PEI.  Islanders give from their hearts...and their hearts, I think, are larger than average. They give freely and quietly, no strings attached and not expecting anything in return.  

Just yesterday I had the great privilege to meet one of my readers who lives about 45 minutes away from us. She dropped by on her way to low tide at Miminegash (to look for sea glass and I hope you found LOTS!) and gave us an amazing gift of organic food - bread, eggs, vegetables and meat. LOOK!

Fresh potato bread made with whole wheat organic flour (PEI flour!), organic eggs, lentil sprouts and all sorts of fresh greens, a whole chicken, pork chops, sausages, ham, bacon and ground beef!  

Last night we had the most wonderful salad - SO fresh! I love lentils but had never tried lentil sprouts before - delicious! Today we had some of the potato bread (can I say I thought I had died and gone to heaven?) with some of the ham and lentil sprouts?? Soooooooo good!  I've never eaten ham that had so much flavour before - I'll never be able to go back to mass-produced packaged lunch meat ham again, uh uh, no way! 

Thank you my friend - we appreciate your uncomplicated kindness SOOO much! We have had many such examples of kindness since arriving two and a half weeks ago, but this post is just for you!!  

The "house" post will just have to wait a little longer:)


  1. Hi Jane and Michael.... so great to finally give you an Island hug.
    Was wonderful to finally meet you in person and hope our paths will meet again. Was able to pick up few pieces of sea glass. Next time I visit I will bring you a necklace made with a piece that I picked up yesterday. The beach was lovely but not as beautiful as your house. I was very impressed. Enjoy the rest of your week and have fun at the Potato Blossom festival in O'leary!!! Sending you lots of love and Island hugs.....

  2. How wonderful. That is really so sweet.

    i also had to tell you I LOVE your header photo. It made me go, "Awww," out loud.

  3. Wow, what a wonderfully generous act of kindness. Some people can be so nice! That was a great treat for you :)

    I love the porch picture at the top. Have a great weekend.

  4. Wow! The Welcome Wagon cometh. How sweet is she! Wow, wow!

  5. What a wonderful blessing!!! Enjoy! :)

  6. How absolutely wonderful Jane! Enjoy!!

  7. What a wonderful friend to bring you gifts from nature - and what an abundance of such delightful food!
