Last Wednesday, after work was finished but dark hadn't yet arrived, I packed Philip into the car and took off to my vegetable garden to pick out some artwork.
I originally left the house with only one goal; harvest the sweet potatoes. Get in, get out, get home. I have the same philosophy for Costco and baby showers.
The difference is I like my vegetable garden so it's more difficult to adhere to a strict schedule. That's how a 15 minute job like pulling sweet potatoes out of pots turns into a 3 hour enterprise for anyone who likes to garden.
To get as much stuff done as I do, I have to stick to a fairly strict schedule. The hours sucked up by unscheduled events like this have to come from somewhere and that somewhere is always laundry.
Which is why my outfit for today, just a regular day, is a sequin dress with running shorts for underwear.
The vegetables above and below in the parsnip reveal (yes indeed you have grown up into the kind of person who follows websites that have parsnip reveals) were picked the same day I discovered the great sweet potato failure of 2023.
That's how much I'm still harvesting at the near end of October. Other than the garlic, which was picked months ago. But I needed a bright spot in the composition and garlic is always a bright spot.
Please enjoy your weekend puzzle and the parsnip that made up for the sweet potato failure. I've taken a turn this week and created an over 200 piece puzzle.
As always, before you start the puzzle, you can turn it into however many pieces you'd like.
I'll be using that one to make stew. Unless I can carve it into socks in which case ...
