A week full of countryside makes me…
… so happy!
Photo lesson of the week: it becomes a real challenge to make progress toward goals when I move too fast. I knew two days here, two days there, two days another place… would be a bit tiring. Silly me – I didn’t count on being so exhausted in the aftermath that I’d lose the ability to do anything that wasn’t gardening or laying in bed reading. I was so catatonic one day this week, I completely failed to take any photo at all while making Mexican food and margaritas for two wonderful gentlemen – one of whom is an eponymous descendant of the local town’s namesake family.
I feel incredibly lucky to have gotten in-season weather with my off-season flights. Bikini weather on the cusp of winter? Charmed! Also – who is going to start making me ginger beer? I think I could live on this stuff!
The most fascinating part of my day: finding out that “meat inspector” is an actual job! A woman owning a very swank and very old car does this for a living. On her long list of jobs for the mechanic: incorporate one of these cards cleverly into the dashboard.
Full moon and a stunning moonrise?! Thank you, Ambergate. (Oh – the moon is peeking through the tallest tree.)
The swankest massage of my life. Thank you (amazing) Grace! Thank you Jenny!
Pink ladies ready for yoga out in the cottage. The farm granddaughter has become camera shy, so I tried making her the photographer. It kind of worked… she looked at the camera!
Chickens needed oiling to get rid of mites. What a mission!
