It was one of those weekends so busy, so non-stop, that writing about it would take three hours, and frankly, I am almost ready to fall asleep here at my computer. In 48 hours I held a workshop, made new friends, pulled an angry bee out of someone's hair, went to an apple festival, watched a pie eating contest, saw a live outdoor concert, listened to an amazing guitarist, watched a play (The Lottery!) , cooked meals, put up 16 bales of winter hay and 200 feet of new fencing in the pasture. I pet whippets, drank pumpkin beer, and played music off a sheep's back. And now I am going to sleep, because this tank is empty and tomorrow I have a full day of work and a date with an Appendix Gelding at the stables to meet.

Things are good. It's fall. And I am happy.

I love weekends like that-- productive, outside, complete. Too bad I have to work for a living during the week!

I figured out that you can do it "all" because you are able to be so calm in the face of angry bees :) Thanks for a wondeful workshop.

I think it is time that Sal got his own t-shirt in the CAF store. Eh?

The Lottery is one of my favorite Shirley Jackson stories! And you now have the right to say to someone- What's wrong you gotta bee in your bonnet or something?

Jenna- I thought you would get a kick out of this 11-yr old's TEDx video. :)

Enjoy and get some rest! :)

Fall is so satisfying on a farm.

Off topic, but at the lady has Made From Scratch as a recommended selection on her virtual bookshelf. :-)

I don't know how you manage to fit so much in to 48 hours but it sure sounds like fun!

It has been a little over 10 months since that fateful post- Thanksgiving weekend. It is hard to believe the turn around in your life. You are truely blessed and an inspiration to all of us. It sounds like you are working your butt off...but having fun doing it!
I am amazed that you have the energy to write such thought (and wish) provoking blog postings. I still have a copy of the "arrows" one that I pull out to read when needed. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us.
