I want to thank you all for kind messages of support and sweetness regarding the passing of my mom. They were - are - very appreciated. I will be filling the pasta bowl again and resume visiting you around Labor Day. My sister and I have much to do before her memorial gathering at the end of August.
Not a lot of cooking is going on. Last week one of my dinners consisted of two brownies. Two days ago, I had a pound of grapes for dinner. Macaroni and tuna salad sits in the fridge for those who need to grab and go. I am considering two ears of corn for dinner tonight. It is mighty fine, just-picked Minnesota sweet corn. I am looking forward to that.
In true "life goes on and so does the show" - my eves are devoted to Under the Midsummer Moon at the Minnesota Fringe Festival August 2-12. 165 different productions in 15 theatres. We open Thursday, August 2 and it has been a joyful distraction to be working with my amazing staff and cast on this labor of love.
I need tissues at rehearsals - and I wonder why - I know what is happening! I wrote it! But the young performers have shown such grace and commitment - that I am transported every eve into their world.
See you in September...
