A City Boy Making His Way in the Country

mea culpa for the silence.

Sorry I’ve been absent for the past few days. I wish I could tell you I’ve been up nights painting or building or doing something incredibly productive. But it wouldn’t be the truth. I’ve been tired. And going to bed earlier. Oh, I guess I did drive a car in the Presidential motorcade this week – that ate up some time. I’ve also been working on a new chili recipe and some original jam plans.

Last we talked, it was hot here. And the flies were crazy kamikazes, like they knew their days were numbered. Today, it was 60 degrees. And windy. It’s gonna be 40 tonight! That’s insane! But the llamas and alpaca are loving it. And probably the sheep. Bacon may be cold. That could be why he’s constantly chasing the alpaca – he longs for a beautifully knit scarf to keep him comfy.

I’ve also been reacquainted with Absolutely Fabulous and The Waltons (the later years). The boxwood garden is almost complete. Barn construction was supposed to start today but I think the rain last night made them think twice. They did bring a work truck though. At least that shows intent. And tomorrow perhaps there will be beams and walls and rafters.

I’ll keep you updated on the progress. I promise not to be gone for so long again. It’s not good for either of us.

    Glad you are back. Should I make Bacon a coat?
