Holly returned to the ranch today after several months back in the city. With freshly painted nails and not a hair out of place, our long time WWOOFER volunteer arrive for a few days. If I was a betting woman, I would be happy to wager that, despite pounding posts, weeding the garden and rooting in the creek, Holly will still be impeccably groomed when she heads back to her real life in Seattle. There is just NO justice !!! Welcome home Holly.
Tomorrow is Anna’s last day here, after 6 weeks, it is tough to become fond of our WWOOFER guests only to have to wave them goodbye. Since our dynamic young volunteer is living and studying in Tacoma my guess and hope is that it is au revoir…not goodbye. Thank you Anna, it has been fun having you here. Come back soon !
The girl team, under a scorching Summer sun got to work on erosion control in the creek. Katie, Anna Holly and Greg set out to right what wind and rain had made wrong. All afternoon, the sound of whirring chainsaws and steel pounding steel echoed across the valley and as the evening shadows fell the newly reinforced creek bank looked like it could contain the worst of the Winter flooding. It’s going to be a long term project but we will never forget the team that made it happen.
Well, time to go, it has been a long hot day, we are tired, Bran the dog is tired and the cuckoo clock has spoken. Good night, take care, keep safe, M
