Well I bet you thought we fell off the face of the Earth or something. Not quite but something nearly as bad, we didn’t have internet. Dun, dun, dun. It was a rough few days. No internet and no television. We actually had to resort to looking out the window to see what the weather was up to. We did cheat and use the public library but with a toddler who doesn’t have a library voice our time was limited.
So here we are, in our new home, with internet and cable. The drive was interesting (we’ll share that later), the house is lovely and huge, and the area is charming and the folks are friendly (quite a concept coming from Southern California).
As soon as I had internet I quickly started looking for a few items we needed to purchase: couch, washer and dryer, etc. Then I set to finding us a CSA so we can actually get some produce this summer. Our backyard is landscaped and we think that it might make the landlord mad if we rototill the grass under and plant veggies. For those of you who grow all your own food, kudos, I wish I was you. For the rest of you, CSA’s are a great way to get local, fresh, healthy, usually organic vegetables, meats and eggs. In a CSA you partner with a farmer and they deliver your vegetables to a local drop point weekly throughout the growing season. Sometimes you can pick up on the farm which is a fun activity for the fam. They fill up fast though so get on their list now to ensure summer produce.
Needless to say we have been busy getting internet problems worked out, trying to avoid going to the laundromat, sourcing vegetables and meat for the year, growing a baby, chasing a toddler and caring for a new puppy. I am going to leave you hanging on that last one.
