folk, storm, and sorbet
posted by soe 1:41 am

Three beautiful things from the past week:

1. Nick Bayard, who was a guest artist at the gallery next door back in the fall, had a cd release party and concert tonight. Between him and his two friends/opening acts, the evening’s entertainment included songs about poverty, love, alien abductions, knitting, and garden gnomes. I do love modern folk music.

2. It has rained more Wednesdays than it hasn’t the last couple months, which means I have two make-up volleyball games scheduled this week. We can’t pull together enough people not to have to forfeit, which seems a dismal way to end a season. But, then, an hour before game time, the skies open up, forcing the matches to be postponed again.

3. Inspired by a colleague who brought homemade ice cream to last year’s office potluck, I decided for this year’s to make sorbet so my vegan coworkers could have some, too. With strawberries in season, the flavor choice was obvious. I hadn’t made sorbet before, so was a little nervous about debuting it so publicly, but the recipe turned out to be a solid one. Person after person came up to compliment me.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

This is my 500th three-beautiful-things post. Thanks, as always, to Clare who inspired the topic and who recently celebrated her 10th anniversary of recording beautiful things.
