In the last two and half weeks, I’ve been to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles. I’ve led 11 classes and canning demonstrations. I’ve signed hundreds of books and met so many of you. And every moment of it has been magical. Thank you all for coming out, showing up, buying books and being so, so kind.
On my last morning in San Francisco, I met up with Sean Timberlake at Punk Domestics World HQ to do a live canning chat (which you can watch via the embedded video player after the jump). I answered a bunch of canning questions, told a few stories and gesticulated wildly (I really must learn to control my hands while talking). Afterwards, Sean and DPaul fed me chicken salad, cheese and pickles and sent me on my way.
Right now, I’m still in Los Angeles. I’m spending the day at my friend Andrea’s apartment, catching up on work and enjoying her breezy covered patio. I return to Philadelphia tomorrow and then I’m off to Connecticut this weekend. There are still spots available in both my class on Saturday at the Greenwich Historical Society and Sunday at the Nathan Hale Homestead in Coventry, CT. I’ll also be selling and signing books on Sunday morning at the Coventry Regional Farmers’ Market starting at 10 am.
