Guess what! I got my farm job 🙂
This summer I’ll be working as an intern at Pilgrims’ Produce Organic Farm, in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia!
I’m really looking forward to working OUTSIDE and learning a whole whack of practical skills – I’m sure it’ll be challenging (especially as I won’t know anyone there, and the farm is located in pretty much the hottest part of the country!), but I feel like the farm life could suit me well, as long as I remain optimistic, open-minded, and willing to listen and learn. Plus, free produce = balling.
Now I feel like I have incentive to pick up the strength training…gotta be prepared physically and mentally, y’know.
In the meantime, I’ve still got about a month and a half of school to go…lots of papers and tests, but I’ll get through it! Anyway, three-hour night lectures call for a bit of limerick writing 🙂
Here are a couple of recent ones:
There once was a perilous swamp
In which wayward teenagers would romp
If only they knew
The extended of the goo
It would swallow them whole with great pomp.
A gent sealed himself in a barrel
And despite the significant peril
Was launched into the Falls
Among riptide and squalls
What a shame that his vessel went feral! (I know, that one’s a bit of a stretch…)
I was inspired by Elise’s recipe for a mock cheese sauce, and made my own version to eat with wheatberries – my new favourite grain. It is MUY SIMPLE.
1 clove garlic
about 1/4 c plain almond milk
1/4 c nutritional yeast flakes
2 heaping tablespoons hummus
1/4 c sweet peas
1 Tbsp ground flax
Salt ‘n pepa
over medium heat until nice and bubbly. Serve over wheatberries! For one large serving, cook:
1/2 c wheatberries
in 1 3/4 c water
No photo, ’cause it was kind of ugly. Perhaps it will be more attractive next time…as I feel like this will become an easy dinner staple 🙂
One of my favourite parts of SF was walking across the Golden Gate Bridge on a breezy afternoon:
Isn’t Ms. Jess lovely in her yellow coat?
It’s so tall!!
My love for Stars has been somewhat renewed after listening to The Five Ghosts a bunch of times while on holiday. Sugar pop with beautiful vocals is always a winnah!
