Saturday was the Hutchinson Women's Fair. I think it was the first time I've been able to just go to the show. I've always been working a booth. I have to say, it was much more fun to just be there.

I visited the Cause for Paws booth, where Pam and her best canine friend, Maile, were in attendance.

If Maile looks familiar, you might remember her from when she was crowned Queen of the Doggie Easter Parade last year.

There was no crown yesterday, but she nonetheless accomodated by meeting her subjects.

This year's doggie Easter Egg Hunt and Parade is Saturday, April 3, so mark your calendars.

Trish had a booth at the Women's Fair, too.

We went to dinner Saturday night, after she was done. We've missed our usual lunches a couple of weeks in a row and we needed to catch up. We got a start on it, but just a start.

Sunday I worked in the studio and on things like laundry. Unfortuantely, there's much more to be done. I had hoped to get more done on my taxes this weekend, but that didn't happen. Along with a long list of other things I had hoped to get done.

One thing I'm doing yet before I go to bed is making another batch of lemon curd. I bought some farm fresh eggs from Kate and Tracy on Friday and went to get some fresh lemons yesterday. It won't take long to whip it up. I make a lemon cake today so I'm having a little treat before bed tonight.

In other news, I'm reading two books at the moment, both of which I recommend. "Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell and "Drive" by Daniel Pink. You may recall my thrill at meeting Daniel Pink last fall. I loved his book, "A Whole New Mind," which I have - literally - at my fingertips. "Drive" is also wonderful. Expect to see more about it here in the near future.

The lemon curd looks delicious! How difficult is it to make? I've been looking for an easy recipe but haven't come across one yet.

I love lemon curd. It's actually pretty easy to make - I cook it in the microwave. The recipe I use was given to me with the understanding I wouldn't publish it, so I can't share it, but is a similar one. I melt the butter first, then add the other ingredients to cool it down before I add the eggs, so the eggs don't cook. You can make it with bottled juice if you want, but you can't subsitute margarine for the butter. Enjoy!
