Write about: the reminder.
With Becky leaving us after Saturday's market, we had yet to line up another WWOOFer to come help us out for part or the remainder of our season. That might have changed this evening, as we were contacted by someone looking to stay with us for a week or two.
It'd be great to have someone for a bit longer, but even that short a time would make a big difference. Hopefully it works out.
This morning was spent harvesting for our biggest bakery order ever. They've been more keen this year to get all of our extra berries in order to freeze them so that they can have them throughout the winter. Today they lucked out with the blackberries, as our oldest bushes finally started producing and Becky ended up with over twenty pounds of them.
Toss in a few pounds of raspberries, tomatoes, zucchini, nectarines, and peaches, as well as a few bunches of herbs, and things added up quickly. Hopefully they're not regretting their enthusiasm now...
The alarm on his phone went off with enthusiasm, dragging him back to the waking world with enough force to trigger a hoarse expletive. He fumbled around his bedside table until his hand latched onto the device and flicked the noise out of existence.
Staring at the screen with bleary eyes, it took a few moments for the time to register.
Two in the morning? Why the hell would I set the alarm for... dammit. I should know better than to let Cody play with my phone.
He dropped the phone and rolled away, pulling the covers back up to his chin. Within seconds the previous jingle was replaced by rumbling snores.
It wasn't until his actual alarm sounded hours later than he remembered the reminder he had scheduled for his wife's surgery.
