Happy Tuesday, friends! Hope this finds you cozy and warm, wherever you are. We’ve been working steadily, tending to the wood stove, for days. And then I just learned that it’s slated to be 70 (!!!) this Saturday. In January. Will wonders never cease?!
So, I had all of these intentions and plans and schemes to wow you with the bevy of fun we engaged in this weekend. The thing is, I’m notorious for neglecting to take photos. Just ask Glenn. Were it not for him grabbing the camera and going to town, this here blog would have considerably less images. I don’t know. I’m just not one of those people who says “Wait! Let’s stop what we’re doing and photograph it for posterity.” I’m a doer, folks. A doer.
Yes, we had a great weekend, but I have no proof, as we were both too busy living it to take any pictures! So you’ll just have to believe me when I tell you that we checked out my buddy Rachel’s new place in the Chicken Hill neighborhood of Asheville on Saturday, and then headed over to Jael & Dan‘s for some seriously stellar homemade pho (!). Sunday had us meeting up with Meg & Alisa at the Early Girl for a delicious brunch (plus a take-home slice of peanut butter cake that would make Elvis swivel his pelvis in delight). We had plans for a play date with a friend afterwards, but a sudden runny nose and cough from the tiny Englishman put the kibosh on that.
This week so far, I’ve been busying myself with the manuscript edits for Handmade Gatherings. Hard to believe I’ll have another book out next Spring! AND THEN, sweet friends, another one in Autumn 2014! That’s right, I’ve got another book deal in the works! More details will come in time, but, suffice to say, it’s a serious passion project of mine and you’re going to love it.
In other news, with the new year upon us, I’m considering adding new sponsors to the site. Got a homestead-ish store or product? Make homemade ceramics? Sell cloth diapers? Do/make/sell/endorse anything natural and homemade that you think small measure readers would dig? Let’s chat! You can find pricing information in the link at the bottom of the sponsor column on the left.
Here’s wishing the week ahead is filled with health and happiness for you and yours!
