Is this happening because I bragged about my good luck? You know, how I'm enjoying my new job with colleagues and all?
Now I'm facing a biggest challenge -- bigger than ever.
In a nutshell, mom's foot needs an operation when the project I'm working for is facing a B I G challenge, if not the biggest. The date of her surgery is August 6th, and she needs to stay in the hospital at least for a month.
Well, this doesn't sound too terrible, right? But actually, there's more to it... I'm not going to write any more details here, because this is a foodblog after all, and I want to keep it that way. I don't want too much medical discussion here. So if you want to know more details, please come to my another blog in about a week, and if you want to comment on the story about my mom, please do so there, not here.
I just can't help asking this question: Is this a punishment? What did I do to deserve this?
OK. Enough. Now, food-related challenges.
This year, we didn't have a good harvest of almost anything. Ume plums, yamamomo and zucchini... None of them did well. Watermelons are doing good -- at least they taste good --as in my previous post, but we got no blueberries. I wonder why.
