When Elyse arrived, she casually told us that she’d be smoking very large amounts of marijuana while on our land, insisting that she needed to do so to cope with being in nature. Her lack of communication, self-entitlement, and total disregard for our house rules and requests was astounding and created a stressful situation for us, so it’s not surprising that she did not enjoy her stay. She was surprised and dismayed when we told her we didn’t allow any recreational drug use on our property (which is also spelled out in our house rules). She and her friend were told when they arrived, that the heating wood can’t be used in the outdoor chiminea, as it is labor intensive to harvest, and there is plenty of limb-wood in the forest (just a few yards away) available to use instead. They were also told not to cook in the chiminea, because it can attract bears, and to not go visiting the farm animals without a chaperone for their safety and the safety of our animals. They did not ask for any meals (which we could have provided), and decided when they arrived to just buy some bread. We baked fresh hand-made organic loaves specifically for them, as we cannot eat regular bread, and they never came by to get it. When Brian brought it over to them, they seemed surprised. They made appointments for sessions with Rachel, talking about it at length (for 45 minutes). We rearranged our entire day to be available, as Rachel was leaving to work out of town the same day. They messaged an hour and half before their appointments, to let us know they decided to do something else.
