Yesterday, Vickie and I went to Biltmore Village, which is a group of lovely shops and restaurants just across from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate (sadly, I did not go to Biltmore itself). We ate at an amazing Mediterranean restaurant called Rezaz.
We wandered through Bellagio, which is a cross between a gallery and a boutique. Many many beautiful things!
After our leisurely lunch, we came back to the retreat to teach our afternoon classes. I had a couple of exceptionally creative ladies in my Writing Patterns for Publication class. I expect to see their work in print very soon!
Today, I had a six hour steeking class, one that I dusted off after a 5 year hiatus. It went extremely well.
After class, I walked over to Papas and Beer for Shrimp Enchilandas Mazatlan and a dark local beer.
Speaking of tomorrow, it's going to be my longest teaching day: two Fair Isle design classes, one from 10am-2pm, the next from 4pm-8pm. I may not have the oomph to post tomorrow night. If not, I'll check in on Tuesday morning.
