You must excuse my lengthy absence. I've just been... busy. That busyness included helping two other people to pick 109 pounds of blueberries on Monday. It was a crazy and insane scheme that took us 6 long hours of picking. I was tiredt. And then some. Yesterday was a co-op delivery and a ton of running around and visiting and such (and included the repair of my laptop! Yay!).
And I just braved the mosquitoes and picked more beans, cukes, peppers and zucchinis which I now need to do something about. And I don't know why, but every single summer, I pick a boat-load of zucchini and think, "okay, time to make some zucchini bread!" and invariably, I don't have any crushed pineapple as called for in my favorite zucchini bread recipe. Why don't I learn to think ahead a little?
Anyway, I thought I would give you a quick update on the kitchen progress:
As I write this, Nathan is mortaring the joints in the cement board for the countertop:
Also, these days, everything Jonah does has something to do with some form of heavy machinery. Here he is behind a lazy susan pretending to be a train. Usually it's more bizarre-- "Look Mom! I'm jumping like a manure spreader!" No, I don't get it either.
So it's moving along! It looks as though I might be making my zucchini bread in my new kitchen in the very near future!
