'Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane...
Tomorrow morning, we're off to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Our bags are packed, the shop is as caught-up as it will ever be, and we have a job to do.
Job #1 - Help my parents get their house ready to sell. Go room by room and clear out 35 years of stuff and host the mother of all yard sales. This is not a task for the faint of heart, but we can do this. My parents need to move to be closer to their grand kids (and me) and they need a new adventure too.
Job #2 - Help my dad recover from his lengthy hospital stay. He had a lung infection (complication from Parkinsons - thank you US Army & the Agent Orange from Vietnam) and was in the hospital for 3 weeks. He was filled with massive amounts of antibiotics so his insides are wiped clean. We need to repopulate his gut with good bacteria before the bad stuff takes hold.
Don't tell him, but I'm planning on making some fermented veggies, and sauerkraut, when I get there and sneak them in to his soup. Ha!
Basically, I have a few important jobs to tend to... thus, you will have longer ship times in the shop for the next few weeks and I won't be able to meet up in person at the Augusta Market either.
Wish us luck and I'll see you soon!!
A work in progress
