Today I am…


Today Ava is napping on Rafe’s new beanbag. Ahem.

Contemplating… getting my masters degree in CIS (Computer Information Systems.) I never thought I’d want to get a graduate degree. For whatever reason, the idea is intriguing me right now. But the thought of the costs and time involved scares me to death. How about somebody just pay me to blog, instead?

Farming…, or rather, doing the paperwork of farming. Getting ready for taxes, trying to project cash flow and build a budget. Yuck. I’m ready for spring and spring chickens and doing rather than filing.

Listening… to this album and this album on vinyl. Matt got me a little retro turntable for Christmas and I’m enjoying the process of curating a vinyl collection. These albums are my first two picks.

Crafting… my One Little Word album. My word this year is “story”, but more on that later (maybe tomorrow?) Also trying to finish my Project Life album for 2013 and start 2014. And I have a lot of thoughts in my head about other memory keeping/story telling projects I’d like to undertake… never enough time!

Missing… our firstborn, who went back to college Sunday after a really nice Christmas break home with us. (Even though she’ll be home again on Friday for the long holiday weekend. Ahem.) Love that she’s only an hour away.

Dreaming… of what I would do if only… I’ve got visions dancing in my head of expanding our free-range broiler operation, planting strawberries & raspberries, getting back into laying hens. *sigh* There’s that time & money thing, again.

Wondering… what my readers (all 2 of you?) would like to see on this here poor neglected blog. I really like to write about food, and I’m supposed to be cooking for the family anyway, so I’ve been thinking about cooking my way through each of our cuts. That way I’ll be able to point our customers to the website for recipes, and maybe create a little cookbook someday. But what would you like to read about? My lack of blogging the past few years has left a few holes ;)

Realizing… that come February 1, it will be the 10-year anniversary of this blog. Holy cow! I’m dreaming up a little something special for that…

What are you doing today?

    I’m so glad you’re still here and considering blogging more often. Recently, I have enjoyed the deliveries of Good Eggs, a market service for local farmers and food makers operating in San Francisco, now expanded to Los Angeles, Brooklyn and New Orleans. I am thrilled with the fresh food. As yet, I have been a little timid about meat, so for me, more information about how to use the various cuts would be helpful. I cook for one and am many decades away from the time I used to cook for a family so I also need ideas for freezing portions, whole meals, etc. I’m hoping I never have to give up these wonderful fresh eggs, fresh salad greens, all the fresh veggies, homemade bread and many other treats. I can’t say I actually “eat local” but I’m much closer to it than I’ve ever been! Your years of growing food and blogging about it have had an effect. Incidentally, congratulations on your college kid! That’s a milestone. Happy new year to all of you.

      Thank you, Anita! That looks like a really great market service! Sounds like my Facebook consensus is also for more cooking posts, so look for the first one soon :)

  2. I would love for you to cook your way through the cuts. I get tired of the same ol’ thing.
