Weekend Review

IMG_8557IMG_8560IMG_8398IMG_8569IMG_8595IMG_8583IMG_8571
At this very moment, there is a strong, steady wind bustling through the cove. There is a toddler in his room, playing with trains, and refusing to nap. There are three men wielding axes, splitting chunks of wood into firewood in our driveway, Glenn among them. There is a lemon-suffused poundcake in the oven (the recipe is from that for Pumpkin Tiramisu Pie in A Year of Pies-which, by the way, is on serious sale right now), destined for tonight’s dessert, to be served alongside some spiced nectarines and plums I canned during the height of summer.

And there are many, many lovely memories bustling about from this past weekend. There’s all of the fun and deliciousness shared at the collaborative Indian-themed soup-making party I hosted at a friend’s house on Friday (think Stone Soup for adults). There’s the cover (!) and very sweet feature in Country Woman, which arrived on newsstands nationwide this week. And there’s a forest stroll, enjoyed just as much by the littlest amongst the group as the eldest.

May the week ahead bring health, happiness, and harmony to you and yours.

    Loved the article online! I can only imagine the fear & excitement of seeing a bear on your property. My mother in Florida finds them creeping on their grape vines, and occasionally has to scare them away. I hope one day to see a clothing line from you. I just know it’d be amazing!

    That’s how I found your blog. I get the Country Woman magazine and loved the story on you so I came on over to check you out and will be a follower now. Congrats on the cover!
