reading // Pig Tales: An Omnivore's Quest. This book shows how most commercial pigs are raised inhumanely. It also shows how pigs can be raised responsibly and respectfully. We buy our pork from a local butcher, and this confirms how important choices like that can be.
eating // Liz's homemade jam and bread made by our friend Rachel.
craving // Thai food. If you're in Greenville, check out Jasmine Thai Cuisine on Wade Hampton Blvd. It is the best Thai food in town.
wearing // jeans and a blue polo shirt
currently // raising up guinea keets and runner ducklings. Guineas make a big difference with the fire ants on our property. Our flock last year was wiped out by a predator, so we're starting over.
reading // Tim Challies' Do More Better. Every summer I start to feel a little overwhelmed. It is easy to let the days get away from me when they are so long. This book is helping me work on prioritizing without putting myself as the focus. In fact, the author is pretty firm that prioritizing self is at the root of a lot of stress. *sigh*
listening // Hamilton - Three months ago I heard Leslie Odom Jr in an interview on NPR, and he sang "Dear Theodosia." I immediately downloaded the entire album and have been hooked ever since. I tend to listen to something to death, but I'm still going strong on this one.
eating // grilled pita bread. I didn't even know this was a thing, but it was part of a Fresh Market Little Big Deal, and it is delicious. I don't even like pita bread. Grills are magical.
drinking // LaCroix - all day every day
wearing // light sweaters. Because my office is set to Arctic.
craving // peaches. It;s hard to believe that in spite of the heat, the growing season is already starting to wrap up. Eating everything fresh while I still can.
currently // making an automatic chicken waterer. I bought these, but the jury is still out on how well they work. Stay tuned.
