The Tree is Glowing
Sunset over Lake Champlain, and a particularly favorite tree at Battery Park in Burlington.
I love pesto. Basil pesto especially. But I have not made it since I was little, helping my mom. She used to buy full rounds of parmesan cheese and the first step in the annual pesto process was grating it all. My sisters and I liked to chew on the hard edges - do we sound a little savage? we possibly were - and we called it "gnaw cheese". Good memories.
This was one of those projects that people do - or I do, do you? - when there is something else quite pressing that should be done but is somewhat distasteful. In this case, vacuuming and mopping and doing some general cleaning up were the items on my to-do list that had been successfully avoided until about 10pm on the evening before I was leaving for an arts festival and C's mother was arriving. So of course I decided that this was the perfect time to make leaves using the serger and some wire, one of those ideas that come in bushels when there are other more important things to take care of.
I hope you have been enjoying summer as much as I have! Its been a busy month here, what with arts festivals to work and babies to visit! In between I am trying to keep up with my tiny little garden and do a few projects too.
