It’s always about the princess…

came home from school a couple of days ago and demanded… Demanded!… To watch Star Wars. At first, I wondered at what point she even became aware of it and if she knew what it was about. So I asked.

She explained, “It’s about that Princess with her hair all done up like this (makes twirly motion with her pointer fingers around her head) and the little green man that protects her from the bad guys.”

Of course. I should have known.

One of the two vintage Pendleton shirts I now own.

Further info: Both of the shirts are from MartinPatrick3 in Minnneapolis. This one is a restored Pendleton Board Shirt circa mid 1980s. The Pendleton Board Shirt was made orignally famous by the Beach Boys who wore them on several album covers.

Winter Stew

1 small onion chopped
2tsp Olive Oil
8 cloves of garlic, minced
3 lbs of seasonal long storage root veggies (carrots, turnips, parsnips, rutabagas. celeriac, sunchokes)
6 cups of vegetable stock
¾ cup of half-n-half

— Saute onions in oil
— Add chopped roots and garlic; sauté for ten minutes
— Add vegetable stock and bring to simmer
— Simmer until veggies are tender (approx. 30 min)
— Cool soup to lukewarm, then purée (I use an immersion blender and leave it quite a bit chunky)
— Wisk in half-n-half and return to simmer to heat before serving.



Corter for Boylston Trading Co.

Leather Cover for Field Notes Brand notebooks.

Oil tanned shell with a natural vegetable tanned interior.

Tanned, oiled and buffed by hand.

Editor’s Note: I got to handle these notebook covers while I was in Boston this past summer. Once again, Corter delivers an impeccable product in terms of fit and finish (I ordered my wallet and phone case from him a year ago and they’ve held up flawlessly). To those of you who carry your pocket notebooks naked and experience durability issues, consider one of these covers as a simple, reversible way to add some luxury, and, more importantly, protection to your notebook carry.

Totally must get me one of these.
