Canning Jams, Sauces, and Salsas

Recently, I was "up north"-as it is commonly referred to by Michiganders-at my cottage in Wolverine, MI.  I enjoyed the end of summer by biking along Lake Michigan, visiting Tahquamenon Falls in the Upper Peninsula, then seeing Lake Superior, and doing lots of canning with my mom and family friends.  We made marinara sauce, different kinds of salsas, pickles, dilly beans, and peach and blackberry jam (from blackberries on our property).  I decided to sketch a still life of our accomplishments.

Arts Du Jour/Arts, Beats, & Eats

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  Last Thursday, I attended "Arts Du Jour" in Royal Oak.  It was a preview of this weekend's Arts, Beats & Eats festival, but the ticket proceeds went towards a charity of your choice.  Basically, Arts Du Jour consisted of two large tents filled with tapas from local restaurants, with bands and circus jugglers in the background.  This sketch was of one of the main bands.

Tonight I will attend Arts, Beats, & Eats, also in Royal Oak, with some friends.  Similarly to its preview, there will be lots of food, drink, and music, but there will also be artist booths.

Tomorrow is Michigan's first football game of the season against Western Michigan.  I am so excited to be inside the big house and see our new scoreboards and our new coach at work!   GO BLUE!  It's gonna be a great weekend :)
