End of Summer Update

Monday, 11 September 2017
I'm teaching again this semester at Northern Kentucky University and one of my students asked me to read one of her blog posts. This reminded me how much I love to share photos, videos, and experiences with others.

Our garden this year yielded Roma, Big Boy, grape, and cherry tomatoes, so last night I invited my parents, brother, and his girlfriend over for a homemade chili and cornbread feast. We sat by the fire, covered in blankets, and enjoyed an adult beverage. It is getting cooler in Ohio and I love it. We are especially enjoying our new backyard. The deck was rotting so we replaced it with pavers, new landscaping, and a water feature. We enjoy camping in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park so that was my inspiration. It sort of looks like a campground:

My next book is in the works. This time I'm writing about cooking classes that I've taken during travels and the existential lessons I've learned along the way. Staying up to date on my blog will hopefully help me with discipline when it comes to finishing the book. I even had some new photos taken for the author page.

We recently got back from a wildlife photography trip to Custer State Park where we were able to spend hours with a herd of mountain goats. They are so fun to watch. 

Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you too.
