Where the blog have I been?

I’m not sure where all the time has gone, or why it has gone so quickly, but I know I spent 2 days of it in New York…

We had lunch at a Turkish restaurant, went to the theater…

and waited in line at 10:15 p.m. to get 4 seats at Danji, a nearby Korean restaurant that was well worth the wait. We always eat well wherever we go with Dan and Cynthia Lief because they take their food very seriously.

The next day we had lunch at Joe’s Shanghai on Pell Street in Chinatown. Their incredible soup dumplings are a tradition for us at lunch before the big Ubuntu gala at night.

 We walked off lunch and checked out lobster and crab prices at a few of the fish markets:

 Then back to the hotel for a nap before the big Ubuntu fund raising gala with musical entertainment by Gary Clark Jr. (That’s some amazing guitar playing!)

I’ve been back home for over a week, trying to catch up on everything from getting my garden planted, to writing the Cranberry Report, to working on inventory for the June 20 opening of Winter’s Work at the Islesford Dock, to catching up with people as they return for the summer on Little Cranberry Island, to attending the 8th grade graduation of the Ashley Bryan School. Here’s the cake my sister-in-law, Karen, made for the graduates:

June is a busy busy month and I haven’t taken much time to write about it. I hope to be more regular with the blog posts, but who knows? One thing we all know on the island: This frantic summer pace is just getting started. We know we won’t slow down again until halfway through September, and there is no possible way to “do it all.”

I try to remember something I heard a wise woman say at a meeting a few years ago. “My life is so very busy lately. It is full of really good things.”
