Barter and progress

I really don't like money.
I don't like thinking about it.
I don't like keeping track of it.
I don't like paying taxes on it.

So I was really excited that a couple of my piano students were interested in barter.

I have traded a couple of months of lessons for a lot of goat meat, and another student's parent has agreed to bring me a farmer's market style goodie basket from her garden every week.

Here is my first basket... I am especially enjoying the beet kvass that came in the basket.

On another note, we ARE making progress on our new house.
Behold our nearly complete tile job: all that remains is the grout.

It gratifyingly looks just like I imagined.
