This summer has zipped by. Well, let's be honest - the "summer weather" has finally arrived just before school starts and fall is in the air. How lovely it was to sit out under the arbor and enjoy the birdsong along with the warmth of the rising sun this morning. It is these moments I relish. Just basking in the quiet of the morning, being present in the beauty that surrounds me. The farm has become such a magical place. 

Yesterday I had the delightful pleasure of meeting two ladies from Forest, Ohio. The one gal had heard about a fermenting presentation I had done at the Hancock County Farmer's Market a month or so ago. She called and asked to pop in to see the farm and wondered if I had a scoby for kombucha (fermented tea full of probiotics) I did and she would stop in. So she and her friend came and were both so excited about what we do here and of course, she was over the moon about the scoby. We chatted and then went into the sundry. She asked how much for the scoby - I said, my gift to you. She was stunned and insisted she pay. I told her no, please enjoy, I believe in sharing the love. We had a nice conversation and their enthusiasm and excitement really made my day. 

As I sat under the arbor this morning, a huge smile came to my face thinking of those ladies and the interaction we had. There is magic to this farm and the things we do. It was a much needed reminder as yesterday. I am grateful for my time this morning to reflect and appreciate the day.

In the hurley burley of trying to finish the classrooms in time and get ready for spring, I am sadly behind. Our class schedule will be up soon! Caroline and I will be meeting this week to finalize the Yoga class details and chat about some really fantastic retreat type offerings she will be doing.
