I'm most of the way through my second week at work. I'm living on the farm in a house with 7 other fantastic people and three cats. I have a wicked sunburn all across my lower back, but otherwise I've got a great farmer's tan coming along. We finished amending most of the rows and today we planted tomatoes. Most of the time I'm too tired after dinner to do anything but go to bed. This is really satisfying work. Ummm bedtime. I'll post something more coherent when I'm more awake.

chirp chirp

I'm back in Portland. I got in Sunday night. My luggage accidentally got sent to Texas and didn't get to Oregon until yesterday afternoon. I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday morning so I'm still pretty out of it. I look like a chipmunk. My phone tells me I texted to Tofu, "Xay i look iike walrus spuirrel laughing gas messes you up now i have vicoden ok thanks" and "If you want to bring me hot soup that would be so rad but you don't have to." I have no recollection of this.

This weekend I'm judging a Girl Scout camping skills competition, then I'm starting my job at Gales Meadow Farm on Monday.
