Hmmm…post a day from away

What can I say? It’s Baltimore, and we are quiet island homebodies visiting the city. Lots of activity and lots of laughs with our son, his fiancee, Bruce’s sister and her husband: Robin, Stephanie, Karen and Hugh. First Friday activities in Hampden started at 6 pm. Wine tastings, cheese, chocolate, shopping, and then dinner at the Dogwood restaurant. (Those of you who know me well l know that I remained, as always, ready to be the designated driver. All of my tastings were cheese or chocolate.)

Earlier in the day, Karen and I went to Williams Sonoma in search of a bench knife ( for making bread) because I decided not to try to bring one in my carry-on luggage yesterday. I did manage to bring some little containers of sourdough starter, so we could make some bread here over the weekend. I fed the starter last night, then fed it again this morning and now there will be enough for 2 loaves of bread and a “mother” to keep going whenever Robin and Stephanie want to feed it for more bread.

Also, earlier in the day, I scored some excellent new friends for the mischievous kitties. More jewelry photo props perhaps.  Then again, the babies look far too capable of plotting something dangerous when my back is turned, so they may not find employment so easily.

      Aw, thanks Susan. Jersey Boys was really great. If you ever get a chance to see it, you really must go! Love all the Four Seasons songs. I never knew the background story, though.
      I’m about to post something about our bread experience tonight. Stephanie made exactly the kind of bread she was hoping to make! So satisfying.


  2. HI Barbara,
    I’ve decided to read some of the posts of other bloggers in the Postaday2011 Challenge. I found yours and got caught up looking at the lovely jewerly you create. What an amazing talent you have!

    Reading this post made me smile because as you listed all the things about your Baltimore visit – they all seemed so alive and exciting.

    I had bread starter for awhile it was great and easy to make as soon as I would give it away – someone would share it with me again!

    Warm regards — Marge from Colorado

      Wow, thank you Marge. We are having a wonderful time. Just finished some bread tonight, so it gives me something to blog about.
      Thanks for checking out my jewelry too.
      xo B
