Jeff and Kelly gave us the sweetest send-off weekend. They were hosting an open house at their practice (Mountain Medical Arts) and invited us along. Their courtyard smelled like the spring blossoms that were EVERYWHERE and we drank so much fresh sage/pineapple and mint teas we brewed from their herb gardens that morning. Everyone got to enjoy free meditation sessions and we sat under trellis and played and sang until dinner time. That night we enjoyed a family-style dinner at Fork and Knife...Jeff and Kelly's friend Nate is the chef there and his menu is completely locally produced and organic...oh my!
Monday morning, the whole crew woke up on Loki (for the first time in ages!) and started her up after breakfast to head over to Dig In! Yancey Community Gardens...who invited us to come stay and work for a couple of weeks. We have a beautiful little cottage to live in on the property with a big kitchen and luxurious bathroom...to us it's the Ritz. Loki is close-by in the front yard so we can keep an eye on her :-)
