School starts tomorrow. I have a million posts in my head of things I want to write about and tell you all about. I missed Poetry Thursday. The office is a mess. There’s much to be done. But instead, yesterday I blanched and froze 4.5 pounds of green beans, froze a quart of blueberries, and blanched and froze four ears of corn. That took a good chunk of my day. Then this afternoon, I grated, blanched, and froze about 24 zucchini, patty pan, and yellow squashes. And made a big batch of pesto. Vegetables are no respecters of school starting, that’s for sure! Our freezer is ridiculously full, particularly of green beans. We’ve gotten about 15 pounds so far. And I don’t really even like them. So we’ll put them in curry and peanut noodles and other highly flavored dishes!
Anyway, I need to go but Nik and I would both appreciate your prayers as we start our new school year. My new school seems to be fine. I am especially appreciating my room. It’s beautiful and clean, has air conditioning, and the women’s faculty bathroom is right next door. Life really couldn’t be much better in the restroom aspect! So pray that we connect with our kids, learn their names quickly, and set a good tone for the rest of the year. And pray that we don’t fall over at the end of the day.
