Check out my column, Beneath the Cork, in this month’s In The Kitchen. Be sure to check out the rest of the issue as well.
Thanks for all the supportive comments and emails following my last post. Having worked part time since Edie was born, every time I hear the phrase ‘budget cuts’, I’m pretty sure what’s about to come. The part timer is always the first to go. It hasn’t fully sunk in yet, as I’m still working, tying up loose ends. It will no doubt, kick in, that first Monday morning I put Edie on the bus and then don’t have to rush off anywhere.
My first project, hopefully, is to fix up Brian’s chicken house so we can install some new residents. It’s been a while since we had some chickens around here and we’ve missed them. For now though, we have our big party this weekend, so I’m off to do all the last minute things involved in that. Edie came home yesterday saying her spanish teacher has heard about our little soiree and she’s not sure how she feels about that. I told her that’s just life in a small town, where everyone knows everyone and she’d better get used to it. Of course, this is the same kid who talked another teacher into making her one of his key lime pies and dropping it off for her yesterday, just because.
Man she’s got a sweet life, doesn’t she?
