Day 62-68: The Final Week

I got home on Sunday from weekend on Mt. Philo with my family. After three days and two nights with them I was happy to take a nap after I unpacked. I woke up just before Gwen and Michael were leaving to see Pirates of Penzance. While they were out Bela and I enjoyed movie…

Day 61: Tours and Toddlers

My day began as normal as any, with a quick workout and taking care of the chickens. Michael and I talked for a few moments before he had to run out the door. Once he left I made a smoothie inspired by Gwen, who is marching in the DNC protests. When I was done I…

Day 59 and 60: Slow progress

Monday I woke up and did my daily chores around the house. This entailed watering the gardens, walking Bela; yes the cat, and letting the chickens out of the coop. Once that was complete I got straight to work with more LASER. However, today’s LASER work was vague. I sent a message to Gwen, but…

Day 58: The Third Wheel

Because Michael and Gwen had left for the weekend I invited my friend Sophie for a visit. She recently got a boyfriend, which was big news, and wanted to bring him along for the mini vacation. Her and Patrick, the boyfriend, drove on over to Cabot to see what life was like in the center…

Day 57: Guitars and Greens

I came home from a fun day in Burlington with my Michael and his friends to help set up for a concert. Headwaters was hosting a house concert for Dakota Dave Hull, while I had never heard of him, to others (of a different generation) he was a big name. I cut up onions and…

Day 56: Queen of the Grass

I set my alarm early for a free community yoga by Joe’s Pond. Gwen and I had planned to bike there which would add an hour onto travel time. When I went into the house to head out Gwen had forgotten, but was still interested. She got ready quickly and we slipped out the door….

Day 55: Waiting for a storm

I woke up this morning and slowly got ready for the day. Once I finally was dressed I went over to the main house. Gwen and Michael weren’t hungry and feeling lazy just like me. I played cards and read the news papers until Gwen decided to leave for a bike ride. Instead of joining…

Day 54: Cats in back packs

After a fun day in Burlington with my friends from school a relaxing Sunday made finished a perfect weekend. I figured Gwen and Michael were still on their canoe trip, so when I pranced into their house Sunday morning at 7:30am to get their cat I was horribly embarrassed to realize I had woken them up….

Day 50-53: A little late…

The saying goes, time flies when you are having fun, this could no be more true. Tuesday was a calm day, Gwen and I worked in the garden. We covered the blueberries with netting to keep the birds out and set traps for the Japanese Beetles that have invaded our plum trees. Once Gwen was…

Day 48 and 49: Concerts and Creams

I woke up later than usual and did yoga in my house. The rain was coming down hard and I hate running in went shoes. I was sweating as I did power yoga and was reminded of how tight my legs are, but felt great when it was done. Like many Sundays there wasn’t much…

Day 47: Work Daze

After the long workout yesterday and staying up too late on the phone with my boyfriend I slept to 8:45 am, a time that may be my summer record. I got dressed and ready to work in the garden, but once I walked into Gwen’s house I found that the work day had been canceled…

Day 46: Burned

After starting the day with a run Gwen felt inspired and wanted to go on a bike ride. My only condition was that we take the electric bikes; which have comfy seat. Gwen agreed and mapped out the trail. We had to drain the batteries on the bikes before recharging them and letting Sarah and…
