I really don’t have much more to add beyond that declarative title. Once my semester ended, I took two weeks to decompress — and after five months of constantly feeling my free time should be spent working on class stuff, two weeks of almost-nothing was absolutely delightful.
So what have I done lately?
I wrote (and photographed) a story about kids getting their own mini-vermicomposting bins and it was seriously the most fun I’ve ever had writing a news article. (I also have my own worm bin now which is something you’ll hear about again soon.)
About a month ago (and after it being there at least a year), I was busted by the landlord for my fire escape garden. I was already so stressed by school, I broke down and cried over my loss — until my kid made me the sandwich pictured above, and then I cried some more, but in a different way. The seedlings I started (those that didn’t die from my bitterness-induced neglect) are now enjoying life in the West 111th Street People’s Garden, after I planted them there with my kid’s Brownie troop.
So, now it’s back to the old blog grind. What have you been doing lately?
