Happy first day of Christmas vacation everybody!! Wait, maybe that's me not you. Well, happy first day of Christmas vacation me!!
School is done until January (not entirely true - still have to finish one term paper) and it sure feels good to be able to get up and have some time for myself. Being in school is great it's just that your time off work is never your own. It belongs to whatever school assignments need to be done. And after four long years of not having much of my own time I'm about ready for a break. Only one more term to go and come the end of April, I'll be graduated. We can make it!
Speaking of things ending, I think we only have one or two more boxes before our CSA takes their Christmas break until February.
It's this time of year - sans CSA and fresh local market, etc... - that I'm forced to buy my fresh groceries from the supermarket. It's a sad couple months but I guess it'll have to do. This week we pretty much got what I expected - some sort of winter leafy greens, apples, carrots, etc...
But then we also got a beautiful head of green butter lettuce (or a similar variety of such)! Who would have thought that after so much frosty mornings we'd end up with a beautifully fragile head of such amazing greenery?
It just goes to show, life is like a box of CSA produce.... you never know what you're gonna get.
Our total collection this week was:
- A butt load of beautiful Fall apples (where did the phrase "butt load" ever come from? gross).
- 1 bunch of Carrots.
- A helping of Green Swiss Chard.
- A frighteningly large bulb of kohlrabi.
- Some Mei Qing Choi.
- 2 turnips.
- 1 head of green butter lettuce (or similar variety).
- 1 bunch of cilantro.
What's ending or changing in your life right now? What's just beginning? Are you pumped for that change or just a little bit sad?
