Lavender (and lemons and sugar)
Strawberry Lavender Jam!!
This delicacy is going to factor into a giveaway I'll be doing before I leave on my vacation: I'll leave the entry open and check and approve comments from afar: stay tuned!
In other news, I went to Petaluma on Friday where I did yoga, drank lavender lemonade and said a farewell to my sisterly visitor.

During Shivasana, my favorite teacher of all time played my song "For the Weary" and I melted.

The chef at Central Market implored me not to be a stranger, and my favorite male waiter greeted me with a hug: I did have a life there, fragile and tenuous as it was, it was something.

I have set the date of June 17th for when I will begin taking Metal Shop Only custom orders again. I will close the list at 6 orders.
I am thinking of making them as listings in the shop, because I have to figure out a finite system - requests are always coming in, regardless of what my shop announcement says and even though I adore the fact that people wish for me to make things, I cannot keep up enough to respond to everything most weeks.
I'll definitely figure out what system I'll use before the 17th and let you know here and in the shop announcement section!
How is your weekend? What have you done to relax?
