Today it rained...

Today it rained, and rained and rained! There was one 30 minute break... it never happens in Colorado that it rains like this. Its wonderful! This is our second day of steady rain.

I am unpacking my studio today. There is a lot to go through, but I should be done by the end of the day tomorrow, if the rain keeps up. It is nice in the studio while it is raining, good light, able to hear the drops hitting the house and seeing the puddles in the yard.

Went to an Outstanding in the Field Dinner with Britta on Saturday. The dinner was in a field where they had plowed under four rows of sweet corn. Food was amazing - dinner with 150 people, food fresh from the farm, great chef - it was so nice!!

It inspired me - now that we are at the garden time of year
where dinner can be dictated by what is fresh - we have started with wonderful salads, great fresh herbs in everything and it all tastes so good! Plus it is so nice to go to the store, looking for something to go with what is in our (old) yard. Looking forward to getting back to cooking for Girl's Dinners this fall!

There will be knitting soon!!
Happy Knitting!!

Oh my gosh, that dinner looks like so much fun. That must be so cool to be in the field at a huge table like that.
