Just when I think I am getting my head above water, I get another website update or more registration stuff to take care of. We are getting close to the cut off dateĀ  – March 31 – so the conference coordinators want daily updates of workshop enrollment.

Today, I took a bit of a break and did some house stuff. We are having our Sojourners group at our home for dinner tomorrow night. Mr C washed the windows, which is always more scary for me than him. He gets up on a ladder with a squeegee on a pole to wash our floor to ceiling windows in the living and dining rooms. Since the daylight part of the basement is below, it is like washing windows on a second floor.

I did my marketing for the main course, which I am cooking. I am making beef bourguignon which I have not made in ages. I am using Ina Garten’s recipe. Tomorrow, we have to finish cleaning the house and I will do my magic with some lowly chuck and turn it into a thing of beauty.

By the way, it was a beautiful day, almost 60 and sunny. Tomorrow, the rain and snow in the hills will return. Such is life in Portland.

Lisa called from Boston where she met with an agent and her staff. She will now be reped by this firm. The woman is a real mentor to her clients. She has given Lisa some homework to do before she gets her portfolio on line. Very exciting!!
