January Food Co-op Delivery

Click on photo to enlarge

Jose, a driver for our food Co-op distributor, looks on as Peggy inventories this month's delivery.

My friend Charlie was delayed for an extra day in Las Vegas but he should be rolling in here this afternoon, and it's a good thing because I already drank three of the beers I bought for us. ;~)

I doubt if I'll get any basketry stuff posted today because I'll be busy with the co-op members as they come to pick up their goods.

I'm finding the basketry posts really interesting. Can't wait to see more.

I too look forward to more basketry instructions -- and maybe I'll try one with our far shorter needled pines 'round here.

BUT, this is the first photo at your place I've seen with other houses. You've expressed that you have a very small lot, but oh, how many neighbors can you see and that sort of thing? Just wondering.

Also, recently you said the population there expanded for the New Year's holiday -- skiing? Or what?

Not meaning to be nosey but insatiably curious nonetheless.

Thanks, I'll be posting more basketry pictures very soon, probably this evening.


Our little 1/4 acre plot is in an old subdivision of lots originally designated as tent or trailer camping sites. We have houses all around us, older mountain cabins mostly, which gives the neighborhood a sort of rustic charm, but I do envy those of you with acreage, I would love to have goats again for the milk, yogurt & cheese, and they're not bad eatin' either, when wrapped in burlap & cooked in the ground.

Big Bear Lake is a ski resort town with the two most popular ski areas in Southern California, Snow Summit and Bear Mountain. The town turns into a zoo every time it snows and on all the holidays. During summer the lake is crowded with water-skiers and fisherman.

But tucked away in out little forest of cabins it still feels cozy & homey at the worst of it, as long as you don't venture into town. Yikes!
