In between the tomatoes and the smiles

This one's for Becky.
 I'm swimming in a vast and endless ocean of cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, and green beans. I love this part of summer. The vegetables are keeping me from thinking too far ahead, from being over-eager in my planning, because there's never more than half an hour's pause between the cooking and the eating and the sighing contentedly and the replenishing of the vegetable piles right now.

This week we will be eating ratatouille, and gazpacho. Stuffed zucchini. Corn on the cob. I bought a smooth, supple ball of fresh mozzarella this weekend, so, we will be eating caprese salad one night, too. 

Good things are moving forward. In between cooking tomatoes and picking more tomatoes, I've been tucking in little smiles to myself, thinking about the freedom waiting for me at my desk. Freedom that I'm growing more and more eager to step into.

Filling in between tomatoes and smiles: laptop research, spreadsheets, IKEA, Craigslist, and my goodness, we need to finish cleaning out our old house (we have tenants moving in Sept 1st!). It's a busy, delicious time of life.

Yay!!! Thanks.

and now I am hungry........

P.S. I have been absent of late because we had some decisions looming. Time to sell our house - fingers crossed - and move to Raleigh so BillHubby's drive will be 20 minutes twice a day rather than 45 x 2.

Yay, glad you're back! My drive is 45 minutes right now, so I think moving closer is a darn good decision. GOOD LUCK!
