Thanksgiving, already? Whoa.

Another farm season is coming to a close... I spent most of the spring, summer and fall at Leistikow Farms with the goats, sheep, grapes, greenhouse/sauna and a yard that needed prepping for a wedding. A frenetic and fantastic month was spent at Rock Creek Farm during October— and in case you were wondering, a pumpkin patch is absolutely the best place to work around Halloween.  The farm store at Cure Organic Farm is open until mid-December, but suddenly it feels like I have a lot of free time again.  Time to ride my horse, time to clean up the yard, time to think about more painting projects in the house... And some time to rest.  My hands are slowly healing up from their perma-dirt and cracked state that ruled the summer.

I always intend to occupy this space more than I do.  Distractions are pretty great though; horses and dogs and goats and friends and food and time spent outdoors and time spent indoors with a great book. Yes please.  But I'm going to make a pledge to myself to get something up here at least once a week.  So there's that.

In the meantime, I spend some time over here, too... .  Christian and I collaborate on that one, or rather, he cooks and I eat and take pictures.  I make a mean cocktail too.  Come visit some time and find out for yourself!  Thanks for reading.
