Today is one of the best days of the year in St. Michaels – the annual OysterFest at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Waiting in line for the Oyster Stew Competition, I overheard this:
Guy: “… it is, I swear – oysters are definitely an aphrodisiac!”
Gal: “Yeah, I looked it up too, but you gotta eat ‘em raw.”
Bravo, CBMM and Talbot Watermen – another fantastic success!

Out of nowhere late this afternoon, brilliant sunlight washed overhead, splashing the treetops in the eastern sky. It shone so brightly, that I felt it while working at my desk, and found myself running outside. The geese were loud, the light was exhilarating and I was tingling, delighted to feel so alive. Five minutes later…it was gone.

What better to do on a cold, rainy day than hang out in the studio? First fire of the year in the wood stove this morning, and the smell of wood burning and soft tunes made me ditch my to-do list and go make cards. Ridiculously fun to do, fold, pile, select from myriad of photos from this blog, spray, assemble, make a pile. Bright and colorful, it feels as though I actually accomplish something every time I do it.
Do you think it’s worth figuring out how to set up a store to sell these here on the blog? You can buy them in St. Michaels at Local Port of Art, but not if you’re not around here. What say you?

A local landscaping company in St. Michaels gets an A+ for persistence in trying to get people to visit their website.
For a long time they promoted contests on the sign in front of their business – “Visit our website to win a free tick spray for your lawn! Congratulations to Mary Johnson for winning the free tick spray! Win a free consultation! Win a free lawn aeration! Visit our website today!”
Then last week, “Veal Scallopini recipe on our website” and yesterday “Recipe of the Week: Basic Grilled Crostini.”
Of all the places to go for recipe ideas…..your local landscaper’s website? The place that’s always talking about tick spray? (gasp.)
Reaching deep, but they KEEP! ON! TRYING!!
Totally appreciate the effort, Dell Sadler.
