I don't have much to report but in the interest of keeping this little blog from losing steam before it's even launched I've compiled some musings for the interested few.
Jacob is up on the roof fixing a leak. Our roof has been fixed twice in the last six months by "professionals," but the weekend rain proved too much for it yet again and our little bunkhouse was full of cliche pots and pans catching droplets.
But the rain didn't keep us from getting our green on. We get organic produce delivered weekly from our CSA. I really like this; it feels extravagant since we are on such a tight budget otherwise, but I value supporting a family run farm in the valley, and I value being forced to eat vegetables. Jacob balks at the extravagance sometimes...especially if we ever let anything spoil. So I do my best to never let that happen. Typically we structure our meals around what the veggie fairy brings on Wednesdays, but sometimes we get distracted, and I end up having a day where my food intake looks a little like this:
|Steamed broccoli with olive oil, salt, and lemon juice|
|Chard, garlic, onion...eventually a soup|
|Jugo de Spinach, Celery, Cilantro, Ginger, Orange|
Don't worry, Mom, I had eggs for breakfast.
Don't worry, rest of the world, I'm currently making brownies.
Don't worry, Joanie, I don't make brownies very often ;)
