This Week

This week we've been enjoying time in the country. A whole WEEK at my in laws' house (which is a good thing). Fresh air, the smell of honeysuckle, the sound of rain on the front porch...

and time to slow down and cook slow food. You know those recipes you have saved that take hours to make so they never get made? We made those! Fire roasted, slow cooked, long that needs time to rise or to caramelize in browned butter for hours. Yeah, THOSE recipes.

We hung up a sheet and got out the projector to watch movies on our "big screen" in the living room. And we played long rounds of cornhole to the sound of croaking frogs and chirping crickets late into the night (cornhole is basically bean bag toss with special rules for all you's a big deal around here)

And I drew! Nothing digital, just my sketchbook and some colored pencils.

I'm working on some projects you'll be able to download and print yourself soon!

It's back to the real world today. But not before we drive out further into the country to pick out donuts made by local Amish bakers. Best. Donuts. Ever.

Happy weekend!!
