I’m in the middle of beet paradise! I’ve eaten (or drunk) an average of two beets a day for the past week, and I’m also soaking beans to make baked beans for a party.
Yesterday, my little love (the guy above on the right who is sweetly helping his friend ease into the lake), Joe’s mom and some of the kids, and I had a picnic at the lake. It was a beautiful day, and we got away with only one skinned nose (a slide mishap).
Joe made his super special red sauce last night, and I had it over my most recent kale harvest from our garden (with a little nutritional yeast and turmeric sprinkled on).
Last night, on my way home, I stopped at my Mom’s and sat on her porch, so we could chat about my upcoming move, and peek across the street at my new home. The porches are being stripped and repainted, and there are lots of good things going on inside that I can’t see from outside. Today is a work day for me, and since I’m fueled on beets and Gojis, I am anticipating high productivity…which brings me to another topic…being ok with being unproductive. I have an upcoming post addressing this idea.
Do you eat beets?
Do you love other peoples’ kids?
Would kale be a sufficient swap-in place of pasta?
Does your town have any “weird” things? (See bait vending machine and horse drawn parking sign above)
What’s going on this weekend?
