Come to My Place...Oh, and Prelude Too!

Hi Folks - Happy New Year, everyone! Just a few admin things. First, I still have several spaces in my January apprentice weekend, coming up MLK weekend. This is an adults-only weekend in which we'll talk about everything, practice the winter skill set - late season preserving, goat care and milking, winter livestock care, cheesemaking and dairying, herbs, garden planning and seed starting, or whatever the group wants to learn! In addition, we'll have a mini-adapting in place class as well.

The event is at my house, by donation (whatever you consider fair for the experience), and I also still have a space for someone who would like to join us for free in exchange for doing some dishes, helping with the cooking and generally helping keep things running. Again, this is for grownups - I'll announce a weekend in May in which people can bring their own kids. Nursing babies are an exception, of course, if they can't leave their Moms. I have a big old rambling farmhouse, so you are welcome to stay at our place, or there are plenty of nearby bed and breakfasts. My house is near Albany, NY, and trainable and busable as well as driveable, with some advance planning (Eric and the kids will be sent off to visit Grandma, so I won't have a car to do pickups, but last time it all worked out fine).

I did this last January and it was a *blast* - an absolute pleasure with 10 of us eating, talking, working and generally having a wonderful time. I'm grateful to have made a number of lasting friendships, and am looking forward to meeting some of you. If you've ever wondered what my life really looks like, please come find out (I warn you, though, it may not look as good as in your imagination!). Email me for details jewishfarmer@gmail.com.

Also, the next copy of Prelude is available - remember, our next book club will start a week from Monday (and yes, I know I still owe you one more post about _The Witch of Hebron_ - next week, I swear!_). First to email me gets the copy sent to them.

Finally, I wish all of you a happy and healthy 2011!

Sharon

I broke my little toe this weekend, which I mention because while it is completely unimportant (the only things you can do about broken toes is tape and whine, I'm good at both ;-)), I'm using it as an excuse to take some time off this week and post lightly over the next couple. Don't ask me to…

I have finished my copy, so if anyone out west would like to read it, I can send it on.
