Hi! The emails and comments have started to pile up and are growing with urgency wondering if Mr. Jefferies and I are OK, so I thought I should drop in and say hello. I'm sorry to alarm everyone by not posting, and by leaving that last post up there describing the little boy not feeling well. He was fine by the next day. In fact, I am a little bit embarrassed to mention it could have just been that he was very hungry that night. I discovered this might have been true when I finally went down to the kitchen with him and he looked dolefully at me and his empty dish until I got a clue and gave him some kibble, which he promptly scarfed down. What's that internet expression: facepalm? Yeah.
Then I had to get packed to come to one of the more beautiful parts of Vermont for a few days of work.
I'm practically sitting on top of Quechee Gorge, which is a very beautiful place, truly in that God's Country kind of way. Unfortunately it has been pouring rain the whole time I've been here.
But rain be damned, I had the most pleasurable, memorable and delicious lunch yesterday at Simon Pearce Restaurant. If you look at that photo on the front page of their website, that is exactly where I sat -- on their screened porch right on top of the falls. It was awesome in every way.
