Give and Take

The beauty of the heirloom tomatoes...

baskettoms.jpg tempered only by the complete freaky weirdness of the cucumbers:


Similarly, my ability to finish the cuff of the second sleeve of the Good Enough Gansey is tempered only by the cats' ability to undo the cuff while I’m asleep. My fault I s'pose, since I left the sweater out with the cuff still connected to that all-enticing ball o' yarn, but still…day-um.

This Princess is heading out on a three-day camping trip with her new cadre of lesbo friends tomorrow. I'm not sure if the wilderness is quite ready for me. Of course, the fact that I refer to a quite-civilized campsite which is less than a mile away from a store as the "wilderness" should raise a red flag right there. But I've packed up what seems to be the entire contents of my household—including clothing and bed linens appropriate to summer, winter, fall and spring—so I should be good. Right? Right?

The tomatoes are fantabulous! Pack them carefully along with a bottle of olive oil to take with you -- decent food perks up any camping trip. We've learned that any $2 bottle of plonk also perks up a camping trip!

Matches, can opener, extra camera battery, toilet paper, bug spray... Got it all? You'll be fine!

You might find this amusing, especially after spending the weekend in the *wilderness*. (Hey, anywhere without cable, internet, and flush toilets is properly classified as wilderness.)

If you're camping near Deception Pass, I can bring emergency yarn air lifts if needed.

camping? I don't belive it. A photo burning, I mean cooking marshmellos over the fire might be required. Andrea who LOVES camping.

FWIW, my cucumbers were shaped just like that too, and I'm on the opposite coast. It must be something in the air.

See, I'm more inclined to wonder in the other direction: how do they get regular supermarket cucumbers so freakishly straight?

One word: photos.

If you didn't take a photo of it, it didn't happen. We eagerly wait to see what happened next.

I clicked on this link from Konchong's site. As an infrequent visitor there, I learned a bit late about his move. I was wondering if you might have a bit more info, such as a new website, or just a general "doing-well-or-not" type of thing.
