Sunday Sept. 30, 2012

September 30th, 2012

Our morning was typical for a Sunday: get up, milk, snatch breakfast, and get to choir and church. except that this week it only applied to me. Chris was feeling queasy and didn’t make it to church. After church, Chris, Miriam, and I went wine tasting with Erin Huntington to select wines for our Gala. The winery we visited was Autumn Creek Vineyards in Mayodan, NC which is about 2 hours away. It was a beautiful ride, and we had a fine time tasting wines. We got back home at around 6:00, milked, ate a great dinner of cottage pie and kale, and spent a quiet evening.
It is impossible not to be a little sad that Miriam will be leaving us tomorrow for England. She has been a wonderful asset to the farm during the past three weeks, but more importantly, she has become a dear friend as well. We will miss her quiet but constant help, her good cheer, and her willingness to pitch in even when the work isn’t too pleasant. She has been a joy to have here and will always be welcome. With that, good night.
