Remember that post about St. Helens? That was the last time I felt "off duty". Shortly after that trip I began preparations for the FOF tour followed by preparations for the PFW show followed by the completion of the Spring 2011 line. Today I leave for Santa Cruz and everything on that list is finally done. Luke will be here in fifteen minutes and I will load everything into his van for the twelve-hour drive. South. Where I will find more sleep and more sun. A couple of nights ago I somehow found time to can pickles, potatoes, beans, radishes, carrots, and peppers. I really love the look of food in a jar.
