Well, I sold my business about two years ago, and this past summer was our first summer together in a very long time. It was just us two--all of our children have moved out. #1 Son got married and is living in Japan, #1 Daughter moved to Japan for 18 months, and #2 Son moved to Thailand for two years. Even our Chinese student of two years moved out. It was really quiet around here. Too quiet, actually. After 25 years of child rearing, hosting foreign students, housing boarders and having friends and sometimes even family living with us, it was very odd to have just us two rattling around this big house.
So we spent the entire summer vacation doing what we like to do best--gardening! More raised beds, a greenhouse (finally!) and more delicious fruits and veggies. The weather was great, the company was great, and the results were great, too. I'm looking forward to telling you all about it!
