Fun Was Had

Char and I took our "Crumbs In The Butter" action out to Walnut Creek yesterday and had a great time selling art and making friends. The wind presented some challenges but we managed to keep it together. Mic almost blew away as she held down two shade structures that tried to fly away. Good thing she's so strong! Here are a few snaps from the day.

Off To The Beach!

When Charlotte entered Kindergarten (6 years ago!!), I met the most interesting group of moms. We couldn't be a more mixed bag of nuts but our friendship has deepened and evolved as the kids have gone from little 5 year olds to 11 year old 5th graders. It's our last year "en masse" at our elementary school and our dear Abby is hitting 50 so we've decided to take our show on the road and have a weekend away at Dillon Beach-- just the ladies.

It promises to be great fun what with the extensive menu, movies to watch, games to play and possibly Karaoke (I don't know if there will be enough Champagne to fuel my foolishness!).

So. here's to Abby on her b-day and all the lovely Havas (long story)-- I can't wait to get my groove on with you guys!

A Giant Egg

The 5 hens are laying 5 eggs a day now. I heard poor Vesper squawking her heart out around
11 am. I ran out to see what all the fuss was about and the poor girl had just laid the biggest egg I've ever seen. Seeing it made my girl parts hurt! Here's a picture of it. The smaller egg in the foreground is typical for our flock.

That darn Martha-- yes, that Martha. She gets 100 eggs a day from her flock of hens. We are getting 3 one day, 2 the next, and so on. Maybe today will be a "4". I am making frittata for dinner (gruyere, red onion, broccoli, and baguette croutons) so come girls, get to work!


The Easter Bunny brought me a bag of vivid blue CHOCOLATE CARAMEL EGGS. They are going fast...

Mudd Hens!

Mudd Hens is a wonderful boutique located at 1348 Lincoln Avenue on Calistoga's quaint main street. They are now selling my screenprints and paper house assemblages. Stop in next time you're in the wine country. Amy has a great selection of bath and body stuff, too.
