September jobs

September 25, 2008

Bulgarians (well, those in the countryside) are always madly busy doing things that I can’t keep up with. They’re pickling peppers and bags of vegetables for the winter, the walnuts are being picked from the trees and wood is being sawed into neat sizes for the wood-burning stoves, grapes are being gathered to make rakiya and wine. It is very funny to watch as it is almost a collective action. I feel I should be doing the same. Stefan is now buying peppers from the market so he can pickle them – I ask if we have enough jars? enough lids?
