At The Shops of Cedar Creek Settlement, my client for 25 years, there is a charming and delicious olive oil and balsamic emporium – The Olive Sprig. Beautifully packaged flavored oils and balsamic vinegars and a helpful and friendly staff makes it a pleasure to cook up some wonderful summer recipes. I love working with them!
Just ran across this photo from several years ago of one of our two year old colts in training for the racetrack at a lovely farm in Southern Virginia. That’s Stephanie, the horse whisperer, known for working with young horses. She has a training track including starting gates with bells and experienced riders so they know what to do!
Summer in Wisconsin is so lovely that people who live here don’t want to be anywhere else from June through August. This is our summer lake retreat, Eagle’s Nest on Eagle Lake. Clear cool water, sandy bottom and a swimming raft for lazing, looking at clouds (and bald eagles) and hearing the sounds of the loon family nearby. Even when I’m not there it is my happy place.
This will be an incredible event at Boswell Books on Monday, 7/17. The story is impeccably sourced and written true life murder mystery. 7 pm, be there!
Last night at the Wilson Performing Arts Center one of my all time favorite authors brought down the house with her larger than life personality, comic timing and hilarious story-telling. She also signed hundreds of copies of her new book KISS CARLO. If she comes to a town near you…go see her!
