we'll start here - clay's new book is coming out may 15th! it's an extension of his award-winning article, "How Will You Measure Your Life?" and is what he teaches on the last day of class at HBS. this is one of his co-authors and a few of the advance copies we have sent out. it was cool to get to address them to people like jeb bush, malcolm gladwell, leader pelosi, etc. clay has some really cool friends! i got to address them and hope that someone will comment on how beautiful they look!
i am in love with the restaurant - Paramount. sooo stinking good. my friend, ben, made fun of me that i would get pancakes again since that is what i got last time. but when he tried them, he hushed up as he realized that they were just that good!!
i went on a little tour of the concord museum one saturday. it was lovely. this is thoreau's desk from walden pond. he never locked the door to his cabin. but he locked his desk. and from the look of things, he got into it a lot!
while in concord, i went to their cheese store! it's soo wonderful and beautiful! the cheese men and women certainly know what they are doing and let you taste lots of different cheeses. yum. yum. yum!
these are my mama's dish towels. she stitched the designs when she was a teenager. i decided to make them little curtain for my kitchen window. it took a few tries, but i love them.
and while i was in concord, i just might have stopped at the quilt store. blast. how is it soo easy to spend sooo much!?!
i made YUMMY salmon and asparagus and potatoes one night. goodness, i cam craving it right now. i seared the salmon and then baked it in the oven for a few minutes. it was perfect
on a monday holiday - what was the last one? - i went to portland maine. it was kind of a bust. and definitely not what i was hoping. but i looked through the windows of this gallery and need to find out how much their works cost. i am looking for a watercolor of new england according to my heart. they had some good ones i think .
this is an icon spot that i happened to find. it's in lots of pictures. who knew!?
