My Tiny Co-op

Because our house sold so fast, we moved in with a cousin for the last couple of months of the school year.

For a while, I was the cook and gardener as I introduced our cousin to growing herbs in her tiny condominium backyard.  Then, she took over her gardening, and I kept cooking.

Having dinner ready for two exhausted teachers worked out really well for all of us.

No one was overwhelmed with having to do it all.  Dinner was ready.  I was useful.  We all enjoyed the conversation when we sat down together.

If one teacher was delayed over grading or the other teacher came home early to eat and then go back for a school program, food and company were available.

This was my first introduction to co-housing on a tiny scale, and I really liked it.
