Srawberry picking over job/process costing!

The sun is shining, the weather is great, and priorities keep changing. What a wonderful life! For those of you who did not know, there is a farm less than a mile from HEC where one can go and pick fruits, dig for carrots and radish, and visit the farm shop to buy fresh dairy and agricultural products. Apart from knowing that we are getting fresh fruits and vegetables, this provides a great opportunity for children to learn about farming, see the animals, and just run around in the fields...and that is just what our boy did when we visited the farm yesterday and he has not stopped running since! They had a BBQ feast going on too so we also stayed for lunch. Yes, I had a tinge of guilt sitting, relaxing, in the sun enjoying the BBQ with a cold drink in hand while I could have been indoors, job costing and all, but I figured a day in the sun like yesterday was worth the investment. More so since we are leaving Jouy-en-Josas at the end of this month and may not be able to find time to visit the farm again. And, as we were out already, we also decided to go watch the show jumping competition going on at HEC by the name of JUMP HEC, a competition between all grande ecoles in France.
