The Chill Is On....

I'm loving it.
The strawberries are starting to come on strong.

 Check out the house progress in the back 40.

 The clematis are starting to bloom and there
 are a gazillion buds.
 Class at 10:30.
Len has made a lot of progress.
 Tina is still working on her giraffe...

 Donna has started on her granddaughters birthday book...

 Helen is testing out watercolor pencils...

 I think this drawing by Shamra is one of her best.

 ...and I added a little paint to my ginormous canvas.
 After class we stopped at the library to check out Donna's book full of butterflies...

 and then 7 of us drove out to the "Farm to Table" restaurant for lunch.
 Our friend Sandy joined us after being absent for the last 6 months.
So nice to see her again!
 All kinds of good food....

 I am so lucky to have these students!  We have a great time wherever we are.

I had a Town Board workshop meeting tonight.
It was still bright when I drove down to the village.
 This is what it looked like when I got back to the farm at 9:30.
There was still a little light in the sky.
 A very late dinner.
Greens with fresh picked strawberries, feta cheese and homemade poppy seed dressing.
I'm going to have this salad really hit the spot.
Night all.


  1. There's nothing like fresh strawberries they're one of my favorites! The salad looks delicious. The house seems to be going up fast.

  2. Those art work shops look so fun! Love the mermaid

  3. I always end up feeling famished after looking at those amazing salads you're always enjoying!!! I got one for ya, so good. Spinach, red onion, craisins, hazlenuts, crumbled blue cheese and fresh strawberry vinaigrette. Yummy! And that house!? Looks like it's going to be a McMansion to me!

  4. Love the berries. I used to love going out and picking them and eating them still warm from the sun...

  5. Ooh! Feasts for the eyes and stomach! xx
