i have come to the conclusion, that, as hard as i try, i feel the twinge of the blog seeping into my daily goings on. i love to share with you all my life on the farm, in france, in california....but i don't want that sharing to come in between my enjoyment and love of every second i have on this land, with these animals. so, i will stop. i will move on to the old ways of sharing moments and words....back to gmail and facebook photos and real paper letters, back to my monthly photo albums sent to my aged p's, i'm also starting a diary. starting today. that i hope i can give the same amount of attention to, that i gave to my blog. but i won't have an audience. there ought not be any pressure or any angle. just pure me.
i have loved what the blog as given me. i have made so many friends through this. nick and i have an almost daily account of our lives for the past year & 1/2. i started taking pictures, lots of them, some of them half decently....but its just not for me anymore.
so, thank you all for reading. if you're ever wondering what i'm up to, you can probably just picture me here, on the farm...or on one in new england...or one in california....or maybe in the alps. but its a safe bet i'll be somewhere on the land, with an insufferably cute animal in my arms. with nick by my side. catch me through email [firstname.lastname@example.org] or facebook or snail mail.
here are some last blog pictures. nick and i and rudy. enjoying a valentines day picnic yesterday. in one of the old houses in the sheep pen. i made him a squash apple soup, chicken liver paté, and a red velvet cake. with beer to wash it down.
