Retreat, etc., 1/29/13

Cheesemaking seems to require lots of wait time peppered with a handful of brief work episodes to culture the milk, curdle it, cut the curd, mill and salt it, and press the cheese, so overall it lends itself to hanging out and catching up with a good friend you haven't seen in a while.

All Snug in Their Beds, 12/31/12

As we hit the first days of 2013, I'm full of memories from another year jam-packed with construction, friends new and old, meetings, events, celebrations, and so much more. How do we fit it all in? It takes a village. I certainly couldn't manage this much fun and fullness on my own, without a collection of friends to carry some of the load.
