I had jury duty this week, but not really. I got a summons, saying I could be called down any day from Monday through Thursday. So of course I had to have someone “on call” to watch Maggie if I had to go downtown. My poor MIL ended up staying with us from Monday afternoon until dinner time on Thursday…and they never called me in!
Not complaining, mind you, but it’s sort of frustrating that they couldn’t just let me know one way or the other. Lame.
Thank you. A little recognition was all I was after, anyway.
In conjunction with writing those posts, I’ve decided to read more about sustainable eating to expand my knowledge. I have a dream to pubish a series of posts looking at sustainable eating from the viewpoint of health, the environment, business/economy, and social justice. I’m even tinkering with the idea of having a bi-weekly “Mindful Eating Monday” or something like that. What do you think? Would you enjoy reading more posts about the different aspects of sustainable food and eating? Would you be interested in posts about household cleaners or other products sustainably produced?
Oh yeah, the books.
I started Animal, Vegetable, Miracle last summer and never finished it, so I am going to finish that one.
The Locavore’s Handbook looks interesting too.
I might consider Folks, This Ain’t Normal as well.
Is there anything else I should think of reading along these lines?
We’re going on a family strawberry picking adventure this weekend! I even have my half-pint jars and pectin for making jam. I am so ahead of the ball this year.
Yesterday Maggie and I completed a super-secret Father’s Day project for Atticus. I won’t post a picture until after because he reads my posts, but I will say, I think we have a little Picasso in the making here!
What are you doing for Father’s Day? I always love to know what people are doing, because you all have such great ideas!
I love this guy. Did I ever tell you about when we saw him at the United Center in Chicago before we moved? He’s about 64 years old, and it was the best concert I’ve been to (and I’ve seen some good ones!). He rocked, danced, and sang the whole two hours without taking a break. It was an amazing concert.
Well, he’s got a new album out! I heard one of the songs, Death to my Hometown, on the radio and I liked it. If anyone has heard the whole thing, I’d love to know what you think!
Also, no big deal, my dad played in a band with Bruce back in the 70′s before he was popular. It was a garage band in Asbury Park, NJ, where my parents lived before I was born. Like I said, no big deal.
While I leave you to bask in the glow of my generational awesomeness, have a happy weekend! Go see Jen for more quick takes!
