friday things

let me start off by saying thank you for electing to sign up for my newsletter. that’s so nice.

now let me apologize for the crude sign up form below. i am afraid i don’t have a clue how to embed code into websites. this blog and others. though i think i managed it, however i would have liked to have made a tiny url link for you rather than A GIANT FORM IN THE MIDDLE OF MY BLOG POST.

anyway….sign up below and let me know in the comments if it all went smoothly. i will be sending out the newsletter (fingers crossed it works) on monday the 26th.

the above piece is a small preview of the new collection i am releasing on the 1st! it’s quite a hefty collection (25 works) which you will be able to preview in the newsletter.

kitchen of the day

if a dorinda sighting wasn’t excuse enough to plan a trip to the berkshires then the inn at kenmore hall surely would be.

it’s fair to say that this is THE perfect kitchen to me. the whole place is goals, really.

take a larger peek here. book a stay here. and follow them on insta here.

in other news….

so far high school for fiona is without drama. she’s taking marta (12 stops!) with her friend and walking a few blocks to school. honestly it’s the most exercise she has ever had. she’s in advanced spanish and so far says she may be ahead of folks in math as well, which, if you knew the andersons you’d know we are not “math people”. i’d have to thank her montessori education for that i think. because she certainly didn’t get it from us.

what else…

we’re re-watching mad men and i’m not sure it’s holding up that well. the sets are still amazing and you definitely feel transported. but the acting doesn’t seem that sharp and the characters are somehow more detestable. *shrugs shoulders.

i think my garden has tomato’d its last tomato and okra’d its last okra. i’m hot to pull it all up and plant some beets, broccoli, collards, maybe some mustard greens and lettuce. fall can’t come fast enough.

i’m working on a newsletter and would love for you all to sign up. i need to figure out how to to do that. the newsletter itself is in the works but the sending it out to everyone is not. anyway…it won’t be blog stuff…it will be art stuff and possibly a few anecdotal things. please say you will. :)

friday things

happy friday friends.

the first week of school has gone pretty well. fiona is taking marta to school with a pal. 12 stops. then a brief walk to school. her backpack weighs about 50 lbs. no joke. they don’t have lockers at her school so she can’t leave stuff there. maybe it’s a private school thing but it’s lame. i picked her up yesterday because the heat is just unbearable here and you should’ve seen all the students walking like hunched over giant turtles. bless.

anyway….that kitchen up there. isn’t it great? it’s in france (of course). see the whole cute place (and owner) here.

like these school or work lunch ideas. particularly the salad in a jar thing so it doesn’t get soggy.

and these low carb snack ideas. i struggle with snack ideas, don’t you? usually for me it’s popcorn. really here for the dark chocolate and cashew butter idea.

the midlife unraveling. save this for when you have a few minutes.

i found this tequila guide fascinating. but i love tequila.

well, i hope you have a great weekend!

see ya monday.
