In prior weekends most days were something like - split wood, build fire, cook breakfast, eat breakfast, cleanup, sit around chatting, eating lunch, deciding what to do in the afternoon (hanging out, canoeing, hiking, antiquing), doing it, and then repeat the breakfast thing for dinner. By the time the Peach Cobbler was ready it was close to midnight.
This time it was a lot easier with a gas stove, refrigerator, hot water from a tap, etc. so we had more time to do other stuff. As usual we brought too much food and what was brought was supplemented with their garden produce.
We did a lot of hanging out, enjoying the outdoors with short walks, and visits to the garden, attempts to converse with the chickens, and visits to the apple trees. One evening we watched the video End of Suburbia which is about the impact of oil shortages in general and particularly on american suburban life. On Sunday night some of their friends joined us for dinner.
We took short trips to the Vermont Corn Maize and the Bread and Puppet Theater Museum. This museum is pretty incredible. Over thirty years of puppets built for various shows are crowded into an old barn in little scenes. It is very dense and quite a trip; it would take days to take in all the details.
