During the summer, the farmers and I harvested 1000 pounds of tomatoes in one day. I took home 20 pounds of those tomatoes and made a gigantic batch of tomato sauce. I froze the sauce so that I could eat it all winter. Last night Jake and I finished the last batch. I can't wait for tomato season so I can make some more!
This morning Jake and I took a walk around Rogers Park. I enjoyed seeing the many Daffodils, Hyacinths and Tulips in the sunshine.
I am a bundle of nerves. So much is ending for me here. Jake will be leaving for New York soon, I will be leaving for Wisconsin. But with all the things that are ending, so many wonderful things are beginning. For the past few years I have been working on how to live in the now and not in the future. So much joy is wasted when I worry about tomorrow everyday. I struggle with wanting to control everything that happens in my life, but many things should be left to happen naturally. It is a challenge but I am getting better and I am happier because of it.
