I'm sitting here in front of a blank screen wondering what I'm going to write about this week. Hmmm. There's been so much going on at Andalusia lately. Should I blog about the Bluegrass concert last Saturday? What about the herd of deer that are grazing on the front lawn munching the bumper crop of acorns? Then again I could write about Fr. Methodius, one of the monks at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, who visited the farm yesterday. Gosh, I can't seem to come up with anything. Maybe I'm distracted by the intoxicating aroma of apple cider mulling in the crock pot in the kitchen. Perhaps we're a bit early, but we couldn't wait to get the holidays underway with our annual tradition of keeping a pot of mulled cider brewing during operating hours. The house smells delightful. It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving will be here next week. We will be closed in observance of the holiday on Thursday, but the rest of the week we will be open during regular hours. Craig joins me in wishing you and those you love a very happy Thanksgiving.
