I’m a little surprised. Jack has been very unhelpful on CSA day (hence a lack of posed produce photos). He wants to take bites out of everything, tomato, apple, peach…. you get the idea. So this week to my shock and amazement when I got home I geared up for a screaming and wrestling match while I try to take the food away from him and put it away.
I unzipped the bag and carried some apples over to the fruit bowl, when I turned around Jack was standing next to me looking up, holding a peach in his outstretched hands.
I, of course, say “Good job. Thank you!”
He runs to get the next one. Ok, Awesome! So together we unloaded the produce into the basket, and into the fridge. I didn’t dare attempt to take a pic of the produce but I did get one of my helper as he continued to play ‘unpack’.
This weekend we installed new energy efficient windows in the whole house. I was SHOCKED that we got through it all in one weekend. It was SO much work (and that was before we realized we had to re-frame every. single. window. So we’re done and the inside of the house is cleaned up (there was dry wall dust everywhere) and the inside of the windows look a mess and the outside of the windows look all fancy and new. There is garbage on the deck and garbage under the deck. We still have to re-dry wall 7 of the 9 windows (we’ve done 2) so there’s spackle, tape and sheet rock up to my eyeballs.
But hey, we now have windows that A. actually open (because some of them did not before) B. will save us tons of money on heating and cooling costs C. will make our house more appealing to a buyer in a few years and D. look shiny and new!
A special thank you to my parents for being our weekend warriors yet again!!
Playing with food.
