Joe's gone for a 4-day-weekend bear hunt. And after compulsively cleaning for the first 24 hours, I'm ready for a kid fun weekend. Tonight while tucking Levi into bed I tell him we'll do anything in the whole world he wants to do tomorrow. First, he asks me to take him to Wildwood. Okay, so anything around here.
Dig a big fire pit.
Take Indi on a nature walk.
Build a fire.
"Anything else? Anything in the world."
There's a pause, and then:
"Goofy kid, you wanna can tomatoes!?"
Apparently he likes slipping tomato skins - a job we gave him during our 145-pound tomato canning weekend extravaganza.
No garden tomatoes are to be had right now, but I suppose with my morning coffee tomorrow I'm going to be digging a big hole...
