first weekend of spring
it seems at least a quick update is due. it was a lovely sunny weekend. we did lots of lounging around saturday, with a walk thrown in. the calves are out in droves, and we had fun visiting a flock of bovine at a neighboring farm. can you call them a flock? i have been corrected -- it is a herd -- all shortfalls in language and logic to be blamed on the pregnant mind!
on sunday we headed up to the far reaches of crozet, below buck's elbow mountain, to a house a friend is renovating.
this is the back of the house
this is the entryway
hawker cooked up a terrific batch of french toast, with veggie sausage and fruit compote.
very tasty with the zing of ginger & orange
hawker & aurora
blossom & aurora
aurora is a baby i was honored with seeing come into the world, just last may. she is loads of fun and had a magnificent natural birth.
the light was beautiful on sunday, and i had fun snapping some rustic shots of a house in transition.
yes, all things good in life: sentient beings, food, sunshine, mountain air and the renewal of a solid house.
and then at home, we had a tasty dinner too.
i've really been loving tempeh lately
today i am giving a presentation on cyprus to tashi's class as they are studying ancient greek history. there will be a slide show, a lesson of some basic greek words, some show and tell, and food of course!
i will save the tales and tragedies of greek food preparation for recipe wednesday however, a blog event that tifanie is kick starting.
see you then!
