Our days are filled with small doses of questions and an large amount of predictability – just what we wanted. Long hours are spent working and we are about to cross the starting line with the launching of some of our personal projects (you’ve heard that before). We often think about when we will travel again and it inspires us to re-focus and keep working. We know that the fastest we can gain some stability, the faster we will be exploring new roads – but, for now we focus and embrace monotony. So, will we be good subjects for a blog the next year? Who knows? For now, I’ll just keep writing about us and our little ventures.
Today, was dairy day again. So, around 11:30am we ventured to the cheese factory and picked up 5 gallons of fresh whole milk, 1 liter of cream and a mini-wheel of semi-aged cheese. On our way back, we stopped by one of the farm employee’s, Chelita’s, office, who sells us eggs from her chickens (won’t have any until tomorrow) and today sold us a bag of local potatoes from her neighbor. Tomorrow, we will be going to her house to harvest some organic corn (not sweet corn mind you – this is Andean corn, the tougher big brother). So far, we have not had to shop in Ibarra for more than two weeks! Hopefully we can keep filling our kitchen with local and homemade goods for a bit longer. Other than stocking up on dairy, arranging meetings and ordering veggies, we have been putting away long hours at work, listening to beautiful music, playing some with our pups and drinking lots of green tea and red wine.
