Of Farmers, Yogis, and Samurai

Well, well, Mike and Brad are back, fully enlightened and all. In the meantime Katherine and I have been relatively busy. I worked last week for Kevin(our neighbour on the farm and arborist) and learned to tie some cool knots and how to take down a tree safely when it's threatening to fall on a house. It was a beautiful week and a beautiful beachfront forest property that we worked at. Katherine and I moved a big pile of seaweed up from the beach and put it on our next year's beet and turnip beds. But most importantly we still haven't posted any pictures of our scythe in action so here's one, we got a samurai to come in and weild it for the picture.



Also, Katherine was on the front page of the New Brunswick Reader, and there was a story about us and the farm in it. That was a lot of fun to see; the story was written by our friend Larry, who lives in St. Andrews. So we're really winding down here for the winter, still have some work to do, but really moving into the next year planning phase. Mike will be arriving in B.C. on Dec. 11 and will be staying until some time after christmas. Brad's family is coming here December 15, and Katherine's family will be coming to(or staying in) the maritimes for Christmas.

Lastly, we are fully tasting the insightful words of one great visionary, "being warm isn't sustainable", as winter is approaching and we are perhaps a little to sparing with the firewood. We got lots of layers but guests seem to be visiting less and less often.

Guess Jeans Model, perhaps you could check your email. I have elected to contact you there rather than here.
