Yes, Up North, is the way Michiganders refer to northern Michigan. I am almost feeling guilty to be enjoying the cool, even breezy cold, weather here as Dallasites suffer with 100 degree heat already in early June. I think the summer there could be a b@3%h. I love wearing sweaters and light weight jackets. Wish I had brought more flats and not so many sandals. Oops, am I rubbing it in?
So much to do here. Friday night we cruised around the sidewalk party in Petoskey. I got to visit the precious Cynthia2 knit shop. They have knitting gatherings on certain Saturdays this summer that I want to frequent.
Also got to visit Fustini's in person. I have been ordering specialty olive oils and vinegars online for them. In the store you get to taste all the products. Fabulous. They are temporarily discontinuing Porcini Mushroom Oil so I selected Lemon instead to companion with my fave vinegar, Lavender.
Yummy choices to add to my big full meal salads.
The Harbor Springs farmers market should be starting soon, so uber fresh lettuce and tomatoes will be just a bike ride away. I'm telling you, this is Camp-for-Grownups.
I'm a sure enough Dallas native who spent a good part of my life in northern New Mexico, where I learned the arts of spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Combining those skills with my long time love, knitting, is what I do best these days.
