At long last, I have returned. Our show opened last night--and here is a picture Jim found on-line that cracks me up because my parents, in-laws and Mr. Wood were all standing just off the press line screaming and whooping and hollering--they made me laugh. And I had finger waves!! Total bucket-list moment for me. Only now I want them every day. More on them later. The opening was a total blast and I finally, finally feel like I can exhale and get back to the other parts of my life: this blog, my lonely dollhouse project, my new (to me) vintage patterns (especially the tap pants/bloomers since I have yet to attempt making my own underwear which seems borderline tragic, really), some serious baking--I'm talking bread, people!, among my 8,659 other project ideas.
But, first, baby steps...
While I'm not quite ready to haul off and cook, I was ready to chop and assemble this morning. The bagel bar is one of my most favorite brunch options. We have a dear friend staying with us bringing our number of mouths-to-feed up to 3, but its equally good for a large group, and totally easy, let's face it. Like a pizza party with individual pizzas, the concept of letting everyone assemble their own meal=individual power and happy guests.
The cherries are almost heeeere!! That means...cherry pie...cherry preserves...Spring, I love you with my whole heart.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get out and enjoy some of this perfect weather...be back soon!
