skivving off

Today we should have been out in the field ripping up last years noxious plastic, hoeing, pitchforking manure and leaf mulch around, hoeing again and finally re-laying the plastic.

We should have been doing that as it's really time to start planting the hardier Spring/ Summer crops. Borderline too late to plant potatoes even.

But.... K is still doing crazy hours on the festival committee.... and it's still heavy frost warnings every night which means if we did plant anything we'd have to go out and cover them with tarps each evening and remove the tarps each morning... and it was a really nice sunny day... and we were invited to Nagano city for a play in the park and lunch with friends.... and it was a Thai food lunch.... and it would be English speaking friends so very educational for the girls.... and....

So yup. Skived off field work and headed to Nagano for a fabulous day.





(Just for the record- the twin outfit thing is nothing to do with me. Blame Obaachan for buying them so many matching outfits and the girls for choosing to wear them on the same day....)

We all had a great time. We are now seriously behind in setting ourselves up for Summer self-sufficiency but I think it was worth it for a day. There's always next weekend right?

Thai food with English-speaking friends sounds like a perfectly respectable reason to put off planting!

Also, your girls are ADORABLE!
