What's for lunch?

I love when the Armenian cucumbers show up at the farmers market. For a few short weeks each summer we have Chilled Cucumber Soup with Lavender for lunch. It’s the perfect cool lunch on a hot day and it’s easily made ahead – even for several days worth. Chilled Cucumber Soup with Lavender 1 Armenian…

Color me happy

Early July means crazy-making in the studio. Soap takes six weeks to cure, so I’m preparing for the fall shows. The bars I cut this morning are just so scrumptious that I had to show them off a little. The green might lighten up a little as it cures. Although I hope not much. This…

A few photos of the house

It’s been a busy wet spring at the farm. This Saturday we’re finally back to Cherry Street Farmer’s Market. CSFM is like our home base and it’s always good to see old friends and customers, many that we’ve not seen in months. Last time we saw most of the people from market we were still…

We’re in!

We’ve spent the past several nights in the new house. Our mattress from the farmhouse is on the floor. The pantry is full. We have two chairs and a dining table from the barn. While Chris was showering yesterday morning I stepped out on to the balcony, no shoes and just a thin silky robe…

Questions

I had finished eating a nice meal in a local gastropub and was ready to leave – but the waitress was surprised that I wasn’t interested in joining the throng of revelers in red who…

Stamina and Stealth
