For Myself

I need to take care of myself for myself, but I know that it impacts my three daughters.
I've worked in professional kitchens since the early 1970's. Food is a major part of my life. Being a woman in a male dominated field was a struggle back when I started. Being an older woman in a physically demanding industry is a struggle too. I enjoy the struggle. I enjoy the long hours, the heat, the noise. The food.
In my early 50's my metabolism started to slow down. Whoops.

Other Information:
The year that I turned 50 I went on my first hike. My husband is a big hiker, and I wanted something else to share with him. Since then I've been hiking to celebrate all our 'milestones' - birthdays, anniversaries, holidays. Living in up state NY, we do a lot of Adirondack hikes, but we also hike in the Shawangunks and the White Mountains of NH.

Thanks for your comments and encouragement on my feed - very much appreciated! The apparatus showcase Friday was sort of like a trade show, as everyone checked out what other people had - was really good to get different ideas and discuss pros and cons of different ways of doing things. Some people brought their families and the kids of course have fun getting to see and climb on the different trucks.

How did you make out with the push up contest?? It sounds like you are a bit crazy with work but I also get the impression you are able to feed off that energy in a positive way... Are your mornings always so early or is it just certain times of year?

Anyway, have a great week!

The goats need to be trimmed once a month during show season so this will be the last trimming for them. Their hair grows fast but the sun fades it so it looks much better with a fresh haircut.

I am making cinnamon hot pickles and that should be enough for the day. However, I do need to see what fresh veggies are waiting in the garden.

Thank you so much for the recipe! Can't wait to try it out (some time when I'll be getting together with others and can have a taste and give the rest away!). Thanks again :)
