What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! I promise I didn’t mean to disappear again. There are plans, and then there’s life, and sometimes you just have to let go of plans and live. I’ve been swimming in work on the two new books, with editing and photo shoots and beverage making to prep for said photo shoots and so. much. more. It’s all good, all this busyness, it’s just a lot, all at once.
In other news, the video the folks at Dark Rye made of me last August is up for award at the Chicago Food Film Festival! The event is produced in partnership with the James Beard Foundation. How cool is that?!
Also, here’s a smattering of this and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*Allan Savory’s Ted Talk is definitely worth giving a listen to.
*Homemade strawberry-boysenberry fruit leather!
*Homemade yogurt turning out wonky? Here’s some trouble-shooting tips!
*Interesting history of solar panels at the White House.
*The peach is the crisp? Brilliant!
Hope you have a great weekend. I’m off for my second forest class tomorrow, with plans to work in the garden and on my beverage book manuscript edits on Sunday. Next week I’ve got two more photo shoots planned, along with the third forest class. More important than those things, though, is my grandmother’s 88th birthday tomorrow! Happy, happy day, Nanny! I love you so, so very much!
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
*I post a photo of Huxley here each Friday because, truly, he’s what his Pap and I dig the most. He is VERY fond of hats, and he was working his dapper look on the playground this past Wednesday, until he got too sweaty chasing after older boys (his favorite thing!) and handed the hat to me as he ran by.
