- Corn on the cob with umeboshi paste instead of butter (try it!)
- Organic tomato and sweet peppers from our local CSA (community supported agriculture) farm
- Local goat cheese (Mary doesn't touch the stuff)
- Whole grain bread
- Omelettes from local eggs cooked with organic onions and Cretan olive oil
Meanwhile, the closing on our house is indeed scuttled until the end of the week, and we are continuing to adjust to our new lifestyle.
Tomorrow, we will (hopefully) remove the last of our personal effects from the house, finish cleaning, hold a yard sale (as long as the weather clears), and continue the forward movement currently underway.
These have been some trying times, and the work of downsizing and adjusting to these changes has seemed at once Herculean and Sisyphean. But in this mythic struggle for independence and change on a massive scale, Hercules will most certainly win, hands down.
