What I’m Digging
I’m on the homestretch of my December 1st deadline for the new book (Handmade Gatherings). The past 6 months have seriously flown by. In that time, I’ve hosted 9 gatherings, written about 16, and enjoyed every second of it. I’ve just got some opening bits of the book to pen before I submit the entire beast, so I’ve been working studiously to churn it out in advance of our friends Jen & Jon’s visit this weekend (they own the yome down in the smaller of our two “lower fields”), as well as a heap of family and friends coming to visit next Wednesday-Sunday. I better get crackin’!
I’ve got a Small Measures post up on Design Sponge. I’m sharing my incredible easy recipe for homemade room spritzer. I grew up in a house heavy on the aerosol sprays. My version is considerably easier on the planet, and, in my estimation, waaaaaay better smelling.
In other news, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*Joel Allen and his Hemloft (and overall philosophy) are SO up my alley.
*Loving Karie’s blog.
*The “Family Apothecary” issue of Action Pack looks amazing.
*This would make a great writer’s cabin.
*Plaid Friday sounds like a nice alternative, doesn’t it?
*Local, affordable nut, fruit & medicinal trees and shrubs!
*Marisa’s cranberry solutions.
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
