I’m Going On Vacation

Vacation | Vermont Woods Studios
Why is everyone so happy to see me go?

I don’t know who’s more excited– me or the Green Team at Vermont Woods Studios. Why are they so happy to see me go? Hmmm….

Well, nevertheless I’m off to parts unknown. The team has convinced me to stop thinking about work for a week and put everything into their very capable hands. I’m not to even bring a computer with me. I will have my iphone, but mainly just to take pictures. Everyone thinks I’m going to suffer from withdrawal. I’m not so sure about that.

While I’m gone the final phases of Stonehurst construction will be winding down. When I get back we’ll have a new roof (courtesy of Rohr Cook and associates of Chester VT), authentic Goshen stone walkways (inlaid by Torben Larsen and friends of Windham Growers), a new back deck (crafted by Ron DeLong of Organic Carpentry in Cambridgeport, VT) from our black locust trees and a beautiful entry garden designed by Gordon Hayward and planted by Torben Larsen. Sad that I’m going to be missing out on all that hard work, isn’t it?

During my absence this journal will be lovingly tended by the extraordinary band of writers we dubbed, Kelsey and The Bloggettes (Loryn and Michelle). Give them a shout out on Facebook and let them know what you want to hear about this week.

Oh and Green Team: enjoy your vacation.
