“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
Here I am, having so much doggone fun closing out the books for 2016, eyeballs deep in this computer screen, and it just dawned on me that it’s Friday and I still haven’t written the newsletter… Who knew there were gonna be Fridays this year? Nobody told me, I got NO memo! Well, I hope you’ll forgive me for being late and for keeping it brief, I’ve gotta get back to this office work!
I hope you all rang in the New Year with the flair and style that I know is inherent in your very being! We had a marvelous time, ourselves. Matt’s cousin and my good man Cory was down for the weekend, and he, Matt, Lily and I donned our most dapper duds, stopped by Heirloom Restaurant to pay homage to Clark Barlowe, my lovely lady Sarah, and the rest of the crew over there, as well as get a little food in our bellies. We then carried onward into NoDa to the Company Store and watched the ball drop amidst games of battleship and jenga. It was a great time, and I’m super stoked for this here 2017, I’m ready to make it my best year ever. I hope you have similar goals! If anyone would like to to discuss resolutions or goals for this year, please don’t hesitate to get in touch! I have been on a path towards self-improvement and personal-excellence for quite some time now, and would love to get inspired by you all. Also, I’ve made a resolution to connect with people more this year, so help me out!
I regret to inform you that both the Winecoff Market and the NoDa Farmer’s Market has been called off due to the impending snow storm encroaching on our humble community. Oh well. I actually love snow days, it forces us to abide by the rhythms of nature, something that isn’t done enough this day and age! I hope you all find chance to enjoy the snow, and if I may make a recommendation, go PLAY in it! If you desperately need some eggs, microgreens, or oyster mushrooms (oh yeah, we have oyster mushrooms!), do not hesitate to contact me! Matt will be at the Company Store in NoDa tomorrow morning with some eggs to sell if you are so in need, and if you are in the Concord area, let me know, I may even be able to deliver to you! If nothing else, please stay safe, and don’t drive unless it’s absolutely necessary!
Just some minor news, we have welcomed a new addition to our Street Fare Farm family, a boy-cat named Hardy Shibumi Street (‘Bu’ for short)! Let’s just say I hope he has a taste for mice! Also, as mentioned above, we have oyster mushrooms growing! I had all but given up hope that anything was going to happen with those mushrooms, but yesterday as I was looking for a tool in the basement, I spotted the fungi out of the corner of my eye, and am now ecstatic! I can’t wait to taste them!
Have a great week my friends, be well, be kind, be mindful, be present, and be happy this week! I’ll catch ya on the flip!
