Progress and Winter Predictions
This week I got to spend time with hawks, horses, and hounds and even on the overcast day it made my mood brighter and eager. There is an excitement I feel working beside these personalities. The clever hawk and my stubborn horse, we find a way to communicate and achieve tiny goals together - sometimes as simple as flying to a fist or taking in a view.
Patty and I were going to go out pheasant hunting this morning but something came up, so I am here taking care of some emails and clients before I head into Salem to pay a bill and pick up some feed. This morning all the farm animals were a little slow going (from the chill I guess). Merlin lumbered to the hay I offered while sheep trotted lazily beside him. Perhaps they were a little drunk on ground apples?! Whose to say.
I have two fiddles fresh out of their shipping boxes to tune and prepare for this weekend. Two students are coming to spend a day each and tuning starts now. New fiddles take time to set into fresh tension. I'll be tending to that between errands, chores, deliveries, and splitting wood this evening after supper. I hope to end the evening cuddled up with mint tea and good company.
