Just went bowling for the first time in years - pretty darn fun & funny. Hope to put the finishing touches on my studio this weekend, & looking forward to an afternoon get-together with friends in a beautiful part of Vermont, as well as an evening of drinks & noshing with pals & their free-range chickens (more on that later). Our vegetable garden is in & thriving, despite strong winds & threats of hail, & our little brown bat has apparently set up camp in our attic. Perhaps we will even get a hike in, weather permitting. Life is good.
