Check in: holidaaay… celebraaate.
Easter Sunday! A time to celebrate the lord… or German Potato Salad. Today I got to sleep-in until 6:30!!! I was probably still up well before all you suckas… which I guess makes me the sucka. Reason for the extra snooze time? Today is a “paid holiday!” Don’t get TOO excited for me… paid holidays are different on a farm. Still have to do morning and evening chores, but the rest of the day should be for myself… unless my boss gets any crazy cheese ideas.
Writing an email to a friend recently, I realized how fast life is moving out here. Here are some of the highlights from the last week:
My two-week mark! I cannot believe I’ve only been here two weeks!
I got to bake muffins for WORK! I let my baking brain get all creative ‘n’ stuff and deviated from the family’s general muffin recipe. Brown Sugar Apple Cinnamon Muffins… mmm!
Kim asked me if I felt like being creative. Psh, YAH! So I got to come up with a way to present our goats’ milk soap in donation gift bags. Good thing I practically carry a hot glue gun around in my POCKET! (dramatization. do not attempt.)
My bro and I attended an organic gardening class. It was great to chat with him during the 30 minute drive, and the class itself was fantastic. I am VERY excited to get my hands in our garden.
The whole family trotted off to a First Friday social/pizza night in Lubec. I’ll tell you more about that in Tuesday’s Paint the Town post.
My boss and I made camembert for the first time! This process is SO different from any of our other cheeses. It has to age for a couple of weeks so we won’t know for a while if the recipe will need a tweak.
It’s something new every day out here! Still having a blast… but definitely happy to have some extra chill time today. Enjoy the day!
