This is a busy week. DH’s board of trustees began arriving yesterday. We have several overnight guests at the house starting this afternoon. There are dinners out tonight and tomorrow. This weekend there will be a community breakfast here at the house and an evening cocktail party. Yesterday they delivered the liquor and the Porta-John. Today a tent will be set up on the lawn.
Last night DH and I went out to dinner with a trustee and his wife. They are lovely and we had a cheerful, wide-ranging conversation over delicious food. Still, it was the opening salvo in a five-day stretch of public events. As I eased my feet out of my dress shoes, I said to DH, “One down,” and he replied, “Yes. Forty-seven to go.”
In between cleaning the house and driving Lucy (plus teaching her to drive), I’ll still be working hard at the farm. However, it seems likely I won’t have time to post for the next few days.
See you Sunday!
