- Finally  I am back at Stone Barns after a week off (I went to Boston)
- Before my tour a maintenance worker showed me where all the animals were moved and while we were driving a car hit a chipmunk.  We picked it up and later on all of the interns attended its burial
- I gave a tour, it went really well even though it was super hot
- Martha Foose talked about her new book which focuses on southern cooking.  It was so great to listen to her!
- I technically only have three days left of this internship...  I'm staying anyway!
