This may be the most beautiful sight for me since moving to our new farm, the new Bedlam Farm. Maria went to work in her schoolhouse studio this morning. We moved her desks and tables in early this morning, and she'll move the rest with some friends on Sunday. This is a big step for, and she loves her new workspace. It fits her very well, and we will make our own new history here, as we did in the Studio Barn at Bedlam Farm. Her sewing machine is acting up, I was about to edit the Frieda book when the chimney sweep arrived and Ben began banging on the side of the house to replace the rotten sills before storm Sandy arrives.
Life happens. I am getting lots of mail with advice about Rocky and Simon. I am amazed at how many people are certain about what animals are thinking. I am not one of them. I will read these messages, though, as some of them may be useful to me, and I will make up my own mind about it along with Maria and share the process, as always. For now, Rocky will be kept separate from Simon, and they will only be together when we are there.
