If you are a regular reader, you have by now realized that I’ve been on a little hiatus. Things are getting a little crazy around here and I haven’t had much time to devote to a “real” post.
The craziness began with an amazing trip to Detroit (yes, I said “amazing” and “Detroit” in the same sentence) for the 5th National Farm to Cafeteria Conference. I was too cheap to spring for an internet connection while I was there so blogging was out. Not to mention the fact that I was busy for three days and spent every spare moment with my family. I have an amazing opportunity to write about the conference for one of my favorite local publications, but I’ll save that for its own post once an article has been written, approved (hopefully) and gone to print.
When I returned from the conference I went straight back to work. It was/is end-of-the-year-assessment time and I had missed three prime days. Add to that the half day I missed last week to have a lost filling drilled out and temporarily replaced and now I’m knee-deep in paperwork and running out of days to finish it all.
In all my spare time, I’ve been working in the garden a ton; helping with Girls on the Run; finding and starting a summer job at the Mercato in exchange for my summer CSA share from 9 Bean Rows and trying to finish up the final details for the Coop Loop. There are lots of exciting developments and eventually I’ll tell you more, but I’m still working on sifting my compost heap. I love you all, but a girl has to prioritize.
I’ve had lots of thoughts and ideas, but I haven’t had the time and energy to sit down and compose something meaningful to share. I’ll be back to a more manageable schedule soon. Until then you’ll have to make do with this collection of random drivel.
