Today: a list

  1. Awake at 4am, lulled back to sleep by the rain.
  2. Spent much more than I planned at the Dupont market – buffalo burgers, strawberries and more strawberries, broccoli, ZUCCHINI, golden beets, chive blossoms, salad, rhubarb, and basil.
  3. Finished the rest of the grocery shopping, made pesto, dramatically reorganized the fridge to make 2 shelves work (used to have 3 but one broke), and cleaned the kitchen and bathroom – all before noon!
  4. Drove all the way to Cherrydale Hardware only to find no 4oz jelly jars.  Bought lids and Taco Bell.
  5. Prepped and canned four pints of strawberry-rhubarb jam.  Scraped the pan with some bread from the market.  Even better than last year’s batch.
  6. Transplanted the herbs and the lime tree.  Planted lavender seeds – would really, really like it if my kitchen smelled like lavender year round.
  7. Dinner: spare ribs braised in this and that, broccoli with an amazing vinaigrette, glass of Garnacha.
  8. Sleepy E.
