Happy Feb 1st

I like February. It is gradually getting lighter around 5:00 every night. I can see the difference riding home on the train.

We haven't been to the farm in a couple weeks and it will be a couple more before we go again. The snow is mostly gone from Chicago - I wonder what it is like in Wisc.

I was asked if I would consider a new position at work today. I don't know any of the specifics, but one of the senior managers may be moving to a new department and we have worked well together so she asked if I would consider going with her. I said, "I'm always willing to listen to offers." It caught me by surprise. At this point, I am all about trying to leverage a position that would allow me to work from home (and by home I mean the farm). A work from the farm position would be ideal for a couple of years to allow us to get the farm and Bill's business up and running. We'll see what happens and what the position turns out to be. It is nice to be asked regardless.
I made some parsnips last night. Wow, why has that taken me so long? Washed, cut in half lengthwise and tossed with 1 T olive oil and 1 T butter and placed cut side down in 350 for 45 minutes. Definitely on my list to plant this year!

I hope the position works out for you. That would be a good safety net for the first few years at the farm. Parnips sound good.. I haven't had them for a while.

Parsnips are my new favorite vegetable :-)
