To everyone who is anxiously waiting to read my next blog (Scott): We have arrived safely on the farm, with only a few hiccups (we got a little lost trying to find the farm). The days are really long but go really quickly and there is no end of work--but it feels great to be out in the sun all day. We are adjusting pretty quickly and it gets easier everyday because we always have something to do and something new to learn.
It's been only two days that we've been working here but already it seems a lot longer. The people are easy to get a long with and everything is pretty laid back. There's an OCD dog here that very amusing to be around. He likes to chase his tail endlessly (and perhaps if it were a little longer he could catch it more often) or chase sticks endlessly or smell things incessantly. Yesterday he killed a mole and rolled it...yum. All in all, we're enjoying the simpler things in life: the way the sun feels on your skin, how the light hits the porch at the end of the day, the satisfaction of knowing you've helped things grow. It good right now, and it'll only get more interesting.
I'll try to post pictures and a long blog post soon but I'll have to wait for the right time. Or in other words I'll have to choose a night to post when I'm not struggling to keep my eyes open after a long day in the sun. Hope everyone everywhere else is enjoying life!
