Just a few things while getting ready for the Memorial Day weekend to start...
bday is actually on Sunday--the same day as my parents' 46th wedding anniversary. Congrats, Mom & Dad!
We're taking a trip to Vermont for a few days very soon. Jake's very excited. We're going to try to see a yak farm (they thrive in the VT winters!), a glassblower, Ben & Jerry's, Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, Shelburne Farm (a huge working farm with animals, educational stuff, cheese making, walking paths, etc). I was just reading an article about a town called Hardwick, which is the home to a large number of cooperative food businesses that basically saved the town. We might try to visit there--it's supposed to have a great organic gourmet restaurant. Have you been to VT? What do you like to do there?
Farmers' markets are starting to open all around the area. I'll be making 3 appearances at 3 different markets throughout the summer--Ottsville, Plumsteadville Grange & Indian Valley. Look for more info in the future.
Enjoy your holiday weekend. Eat well, have fun, be safe and don't forget to take some time out to reflect on those that we honor with the day. Things could be quite different around here if it weren't for them.
