the apocalypse can come

The apocalypse can come now.

My family will survive on my homegrown bounty.

PS. Turmoil, upheaval and more Life continue around here. Some is stressful, some is exciting, some is overwhelming. To sum up appropriately vaguely, we will not be selling and moving, it appears I have unintentionally landed myself a Career rather than a job, and squeee (!) I will be travelling this July. Big breath. Bring it on.

That is exactly what I think whenever I harvest something edible from the garden: when the apocalypse comes, I CAN FEED US. As it stands now, though, if it happens anytime soon we'll probably just have to eat the dog.

(Sending good thoughts for alla that other stuff.)

Tania said...

I'm afraid we'd have to exist on pan-fried stick insects and - with luck - a few figs.

THE JOB THING AND THE TRAVEL THING SOUNDS HAND DOWN EXCITEMENT.

flowerpress said...

Yay, that all sounds big! Congratulations :-)

We will sadly be eating chilli, cucumbers and dog stew here when the day comes. yeeuch.

Ah, go on wif ya. Change reminds you you're alive. ;) Good luck with it all.

Annie said...

Could the apocalypse wait just a bit please ... we won't be getting the new allotment for a few weeks yet.

Good luck with all that Life!

Pixie said...

yep, I can feed us too....will the revolting teenagers suddenly agree to eat purple beans and artichokes? OH, hold on, there's only one artichoke. It's pretty though. Squee for big jobs and travelling indeed indeed!

We have kilo upon kilo of plums plopping around in our orchard with roaming emus and laidback kangaroos who both love love love plums!! I am going to make some jam to help stem the plum tide at my door.

May good things be flowing to your door too. Lydia

Janet said...

A career ! Isn't it odd when you suddenly realise you're a Grown Up ? (Though you know you've been one for years , of course ... witness the three fine boys and those fine beans !)

P.S. Come the Apocalypse , I've got a spindly pot of parsley and a Bay tree .... the REAL low fat diet .

Elizabeth said...

I am appropriately excited for you, even though I only know what's vaguely going on.

blackbird said...

Selling and moving?!

Lynn said...

Let's see, that's one bean pod per person, plus an extra for each child, plus one for the critters to fight over. You're good to go!

Me, I'm in big trouble, because the kale plant still limping along after multiple freezes is being decimated by the sparrows as we speak. It's been nice knowing ya.

Career! Travel! Sounds great. Would love to hear more. It is always good to read that there is life after kids are all grown up.

readersguide said...

Wait, so what? You were going to move? Now you are not? What? (Lovely beans, but the way.)

D Darby said...

Any chance you can fit London into your plans?
Would love to meet you for coffee and talk stripy quilts and other essential topics :-) D

A career! Fabulous Suse, well done. And travel in July sounds simply wonderful. I hope the stressful parts are resolved soon. xx

Isabelle said...

Well, that sounds very exciting. Congratulations (I assume).

herhimnbryn said...

Oh 'citement! Well done you.

Fairlie said...

Career, travel, staying put... All big life stuff!

Great harvest from your garden. When teh apocalypse comes, I hope it does so in summer and my household can survive on freshly made basil pesto sauce until the dried pasta in the pantry runs out...

embracingitall said...

I refer to our veggie patch as the ornamental garden. Although, the two blueberries I grew this year were pretty darn yummy. Congrats on your career! Happy travels. Jacinta

shadygrey said...

Good on you, Mrs Soup. Keep a firm grip on your beans and you can tackle any challenge...

Stomper Girl said...

Are you going to sew shoulderpads into all your tops at Crarf Camp then? Can you still wear a doily on your skirt if you're a careerwoman? These questions and more will be discussed at leisure ...

Di said...

Wow- some fabulous sounding things life is throwing your way! Hope the stressful stuff resolves itself in due course so you can enjoy the good bits more fully.
