Easter brunch at Tra Vigne in St. Helena in Napa Valley. Celebrated Alex and Ian’s future at Oregon State and Tufts…we all agreed that the Mozzarella Cheese “Al Minuto” was life changing. It was really, really wonderful. The rest of our meal was delicious…but that cheese, made just that moment, was just incredible. This is the end of our regularly scheduled programming…we’re not to 1000 yet, but we have something special planned for the grand finale. Come back tomorrow…In the meantime, I wonder if I can do a 1000 days of cheese blog?
Tupelo Coffee House in Sacramento with Diane and Melanie, brainstorming girl power and all that good stuff. I do believe there is a palm tree in Melanie’s cup (not that I am easily distracted by coffee or anything).
This was my grandmother’s garden seat. There were two, and they were always on her patio. In white.
I was the only one who wanted them, and immediately painted them purple and set them in the corner of the garden for my daughters. I imagined tea parties, but they really aren’t all that comfortable, even for a child. Last year I repainted them bright yellow, except I didn’t use primer. It wasn’t good. At all. This year I moved them to a new spot, invested in primer and painted them sage green, to match everything else in my life. Much better. The coffee agrees, because it can hide there and enjoy the quiet of the yard, all by itself. I hope Grandma Jessie approves.
Rob Keller, Tampa, Florida. Rob is a graphic designer and and shows his Flicker photos here.
Andrea Vestergaard, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Andrea is my fourth daughter. You already know about Kate and Alex…Margot, our next door neighbor (who is now a grown up grad student in Maine) is my third. Andrea was an exchange student who became Alex’s BFF last year, and she’s my fourth. She loved salsa, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and coffee. She fit right in!
“My daily pleasure! A coffee shot just before it gets poured in the cup of skimmed milk. The best milk skimmer on the market is in my opinion the one from Ikea!”
