If not now, when?

One American woman. Twenty acres and a 1650 farmhouse in Tuscany. Random introspection and hilarity, depending on the day.

16 September 2006

I don't even recognize myself.

On the agenda this morning: harvesting fennel seeds from the plants in my yard, to be dried and used this winter to season pork.

And tomorrow, if it stops raining:

I'll gather sage to make a large batch of sage/walnut pesto to freeze.

And collect the spent lavender blossoms to make into smelly sachets for linen closets and drawers.

I have totally been body snatched.
Send help!! (Preferably someone who fits the aforementioned type who can chop firewood and help me eat a good fennel-encrusted pork tenderloin).
