And -- have I mentioned that I'm coaching cross country? What? I don't even like running!?! I've allowed the idea to stew for about a month before making a decision - and I think it will be a great opportunity to work out, maybe relieve some stress, see some of the good kids I taught last year, and not to mention a little extra moola in our pockets. I'm sure that will be it's own adventure.
This week I've mainly been occupied with grammar and literature and writing - but we also made some delicious blackberry jelly, and Tom used some of our home-grown tomatoes to make the tomato pie I mentioned earlier. I don't know if I've mentioned it before --- Tom loves to cook. He does most of the cooking - I'm woman enough to admit it now. But what kind of wife would I be to stand in the way of the joy he gets from making me dinner? I say: let the man cook. It's a huge blessing as I don't have to worry about cooking most nights after school. I think I got a good hubs.
I meant to photograph the whole jelly-making process - but when I walked into our place on Wednesday after school Tom greeted me with a measuring cup to pour the jelly-juice into the jars - so alas, there was no time to photograph the entire experience.
