The mountains are beautiful.
The pumpkins are ready. Jimmy the calf lives right down the road, along with wrestling young pigs.
I might get a chicken tractor.
I got a lot accomplished in short order in Asheville, meeting with the draftsman, the contractor, the kitchen guy. Apparently I didn’t win the Wolf/SubZero Dream Kitchen Sweepstakes this year so I’m taming my hopes and expectations a bit but it is still very exciting. The best part? I hadn’t been back there in almost a year and I was worried that, in my imagination, I had transformed the place into more than it is in that time. I hadn’t. It is more than I imagined. The couple renting the house- a musician and a woman not altogether unlike myself- have made a beautiful temporary home for themselves there this year and are caring for the house in the best of fashion. It’s the same spectacular vista. And the garden is just waiting.
Okay. I have to go back to felting. I met the deadline for turning in my inventory list last week; now I need to finish the inventory. Happy Monday!
