Daily Prompt: On the Edge

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

We all have things we need to do to keep an even keel–blogging, exercising,reading, cooking. What’s yours?

I need to do all of the above ,plus I have to feed the felines two to three times a day to keep them happy. If I’m slightly late they go after my books, climb the piano to mess up the pictures on the wall, if all these things do not work i.e the food is still delayed, they knock the lamps down, and in their language would look at me with wide eyes and say, “What is wrong with you, did you not get the message yet?

On Tuesdays I collect the garbage to get ready to be picked up on Wednesday. I go for grocery shopping at least once a week, which becomes a headache, the produce look like they’ve waited long enough to be bought, if I’m unable to buy them within two days of their arrival, all I can hope for is half rotten fruits and vegetables.

Their excuse is , because of the distance covered to come to Newfoundland by truck , the produce is not fresh, so we grin and bear it.

There are some local farmers who grow some vegetables that are climate friendly. If one wants to eat vegetables grown in warmer countries they’ll have to be contented with half rotten vegetables.

I’m probably not painting a rosy picture, we’ve grown used to it, we also buy frozen vegetables which look better than the so called fresh ones.

  1. My dearest sister,

    This is a very good description, which makes me feel like I also want to go out and check if the vegetables in the grocery shop here are fresh or look rotten. Climate friendly vegetables sounds like a tempting idea, I wonder which vegetables they are and if they are really good.

    While reading this post I realized suddenly that it is indeed Tuesday, and here too the truck comes on Wednesday for picking the garbage. Thanks for reminding!! 😀

    And thank you for the post.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    All good wishes,

    robert
