I remember the idea of living on a hill far enough away to have "space" be it personal, social or psychological. And, yet be close enough to stock up on watermelon pickles!

What better way to enjoy friends than with hot ginger tea and yak butter? When my sons were young I would make a meal of fresh, homemade biscuits with lots of butter and jam and fried eggs. Of course, there was also a pot of hot tea, earl grey was our drink of choice, with milk and sugar poured from my Grandma Ruby's cream colored porcelain tea pot with the golden dragons. A better meal, I have not had.
