Happy Day

Had a great day. Some people think all farmers do is work from dawn to dusk, 7 days a week. But we've created a model that works well for us, that we think may keep us from burning out. It involves working reasonable hours, and limiting weekend work, so that we rest and spend time with friends/family in addition to toiling away at our labor of love.

Woke up, well-rested, made jam. (Though being on my feet wasn't fun.)
Gerard and I went to the farmers' market to pick up our fruit share and a few other things. We got even more fruit than last week! Craziness. Peaches, plums, apples, yum! Stopped by the farm to do some watering and then headed home.

TCB at home and then went to a Union soccer game at the new stadium near us. It was a belated Christmas gift for my brother-in-laws. It was fun. Hadn't seen those boys in while. One quit smoking the night we told him we were pregnant, another just quit about a month ago. My own bro is getting off the nicorette gum. I'm so proud of all of them! That's 3 out of 4 smoking siblings... just one more to go.

Gerard and I got into silly thing b/c I wanted popcorn and he came back with fries without ketchup, etc. etc. but it was no big thing. I'm telling you though, if you're pregnant, and you do have a specific craving, sometimes the only person you can trust to acquire the food needed is yourself. No offense Gerard! Sue and Rob were also at the game and so we met up with them in the 2nd half, which was a good time.

Then dinner at Gerard's work and now, fruit salad and t.v. Definitely busy... but fun-filled. Looking forward to more sleep, and some good cooking/canning in the kitchen tomorrow.
