No longer a “Westward Bound Son”

September 6, 2008

I’ve been contemplating this blog for awhile now. It just doesn’t sit right with me, having a blog mostly dedicated to SF when we are now onto a different phase of our lives. Especially, since I started this blog when I was running to California. Now, that Dev and I are settling down together, it’s time to start a blog for the two of us and our life here in NY. I have different goals now and I’d like to start with a fresh page.

So, from this point on, update your bookmarks and links to:

Filthy Fingernails and a Farmer’s Tan or http://ruralrecluse.wordpress.com/ for short.

In other news, Dev’s in Boston visiting with Kesh, Kami, and tiny Ixa. Our camera has finally bit the dust, but hopefully she sends me some photos through her phone. I can’t wait until I’m able to go up North for a visit too!

Yesterday was my first day on the farm and I loved it. The ragweed was insane though, I had a sneezing fit on the way home. By the time I had washed all the pollen from my arms and face, the whole sink was a bright yellow. Besides that, it was a great time. The other workers are chill and around my age. Some are migrating with work and others are locals with a similar dream of owning a farm or at least becoming self sufficient.

Dev baked a no-noodle lasagna (due to our findings that I can’t eat wheat) before I got home, so I have enough food to last me while she’s gone. She also baked a wheat-free apple pie for when we had Gabe and Mae over for dinner, so I get all the leftovers to myself. Just in case you weren’t sure how amazing she really is, there’s a little glimpse for you.

It’s weird and quiet around the house now without her here. I need to get up and do something before I look up and it’s 6pm or something. Tomorrow is the slow day at the farmer’s market, I’m going to check out if there are more places that could use a hand. I have Thursdays and Fridays for sure at EMOF, but I’d like to have 4 scheduled days a week so I can start working on art again.

That’s the plan.
