Mark and I spent the last day and a half sharing a cabin with some friends on a mountaintop a few hours away.  We relaxed in front of a warm fire while fog encircled us and wind roared across the roof.  Brilliant yellow and orange leaves spun outside the windows as we shared a homemade feast derived from each of our farms.

And then Mark and I, by mutual consent, scurried home early.  Lucy bounded out to meet us with her whole hindquarters flapping from side to side, the rooster crowed a welcome, the chicken coops yielded up six eggs, and Huckleberry jumped into my lap and hasn't moved far since.

It's good to be home!
