Beautiful October Day

It was a beautiful day today. We were able to spend the afternoon with a number of good friends and family. We have a business partner and incredible friend, Chad, who has somehow talked his father into mowing our lawn for us each week. In addition to this, his father-Ken, has also begun the process of chopping down any dead or diseased tree we have on the property. It is just amazing, and we feel incredibly grateful for this act of kindness.

To thank Ken, we had his whole family, and some of ours, out to the farm today. This is one of those meals I’ve told you about, where everything comes from the farm. Eric, Seth and Chad made fried chicken (I just typed in friend chicken by accident :/) along with mashed potatoes and gravy. We had apple sauce made from apples that came from our neighbor Jeanne’s farm. We added some broccoli into the mix, and it was delicious.

It was a truly beautiful day.
