Write two haiku about: the night.
Kat's brother and his family arrived in time for dinner this evening, and Max started playing with his cousin Natalie shortly after that. They didn't stop until well after dark, by which point all of the adults were quite ready for bed (those who hadn't already gone to sleep anyway).
I expect more of the same tomorrow.
Box day went quite smoothly, though there was a lot of extra work to be done with the nectarines. We had a lot leftover after Saturday's market and with more coming off the trees Sunday night, and even more due to be picked later this week, we needed to move them fast.
So we offered a pretty heavy discount to our local customers and they responded by snatching up 130 pounds of them. Throw in the 20 or so pounds that was distributed through the boxes this afternoon and pretty much all of the extras have been taken care of.
I'm sure, with all the extra guests around this week, we'll manage to eat our way through the rest without much trouble.
Under your cover
secrets are hidden away
from day's prying eyes

A long, peaceful break
from the chaos of my... oh.
