1. Last weekend Big Chuck and I went for a 7 course 5 hour meal in the country hosted by his supervisor. The experience is called la table champêtre and we visited this one. It was a really wonderful afternoon/evening, full of eating and drinking and visiting the farm animals. There were at least 40 of us there, seated at a long table in the host family's home. A certain percentage of the food they served had to come from their own farm. So between courses we got to go out and meet the animals (possibly friends of the ones we had just consumed... ahem).
2. Today is Black Friday. A relatively new concept to me. But since the majority of North America is getting their shop on today, I thought I'd join the party. Visit my online store and enter the discount code "poppytalk" to receive 20% off your entire order. Valid today (Nov. 26) through Monday November 29th.
3. Which brings me to my next bit of news. English Muffin is part of Poppytalk Handmade Holiday Market. You should go check it out. There are tones of great vendors, the perfect place to start your handmade holiday shopping.
4. Did you get a chance to see my office featured on Jane's blog Ill Seen, Ill Said as part of her "Where we blog from" series? It was such a treat to be part of her blog, it's been a favourite of mine for some time. Thanks again Jane!
So now that we're all caught up, I'd like to wish you a wonderful weekend. I'll be making some decorations for my sister-in-law's baby shower, and enjoying this winter weather we're having here. (Crossing my fingers for lots of snow this weekend!)
