We have been shot down in flames from our wrapper supplier, not once, but twice. What is a person to make of such developments? Is someone trying to tell me something?
I went to get wrappers last weekend at YiPing's and she said she only had five packages left because she needed them to make dumplings herself. The nerve! Who does she think she is? She said more would come on Tuesday.
I took the five packages and had to go to our alternative source, the Coop, which is more expensive, but more reliable. However, they need to order them, so we couldn't get them that day. They ordered the goods and we got them on Monday, which meant that we furiously had to make dumplings on Monday and Tuesday for today's market. This is normally something we do on the weekend because we love it so much and can't imagine doing anything else with our free time.
Tuesday afternoon N had a dentist's appointment (no cavities, thankfully) and on the way back, we had to hurry because A had piano at 3:30. We had about 15 minutes to spare, which is a boatload of time in our world, so we swung by YiPing's to get the wrappers, and again, she didn't have any. Can you believe it? She said maybe Friday.
I was stunned. Clearly this week just wasn't meant to me. A sign, perhaps, or an indication of the bigger picture? Who's to say. All I know is, we've got to get to the market, and all I want to do is lay down and take a nap. What else is new?
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Lars Sundstrom for the pic.
