What a weekend and it is still going on... I had posted here about what our schedule was. The Community Meeting was incredibly well run. This meeting was part of a County effort to re-evaluate the Zoning for this area. This neck of the woods has some of the last "developable" land in Whatcom County so there is a long line of salivating developers huffing and puffing to get in. To make matters more 'interesting', the first person in line is a local and is very environmentally conscious. His plan is actually nice but like all of the plans, not suited for this area. Dropping over 700 households into an agricultural and rural area is not a good idea especially since all the jobs are 45 minutes away. The second in line is D.R. Horton and the little piggies get worse from there (if possible). The Solstice Party/camp-over/pot-luck was a lot of fun -- people from Seattle came up and it was great to see old friends. The Cider was proclaimed to be dry and tart but very tasty. The Mead was not quite ready for prime-time so it did not make an appearance -- it needed another month or two to mellow out. Had a big bonfire and fnu was had by all. The Farmer's Market was a success - the weather was a lot nicer than last week and it is proving to be a great way to meet people in the community. Tomorrow, I head into Bellingham to pick up two Auction winnings; there was a Blacksmith Shop that was auctioned off Saturday Evening and although I could not attend, three of my absentee bids won (a vice (I don't have enough), some hammers and a Tuyere). I also snagged two receipt printers from a local school online auction and these will be used for our Point of Sale system in our Cidery. Busy? Me??? Naaaa.... [grin]
