Each morning Trinket and I stroll along Beach Drive on our walk. We are watching all the preparations for a full summer: docks are being put in, flower boxes filled, porches scrubbed and styled with gobs of wicker.
Later on Wednesdays and Saturdays, I ride my bike into the Harbor Springs Farmers Market. This time I snagged these gorgeous lupine and peonies for a bouquet in the condo, along with fresh eggs, lettuces, broccoli and gourmet vanilla extract. I think the base for it is vodka! The vender grows the beans and then ages the vanilla.
After a little fresh salad dinner, I sometimes find myself on Pat's porch with a lovely glass of syrah and little bits of brownies made from Barefoot Contessa recipe. Chocolate and red wine. What's not to love? Bliss!
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.
