Kicking back Up North
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.
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.
