Farmer's Market summer 2011

The Farmer's Market started up last weekend in Aspen. A market filled with colors, music, fruits and veggies, flowers and crafts. Most of all, our market is filled with people and dogs!! It's a wonderful social event to start the weekend.

I'm happy to be sharing a booth this summer every other week with Georganne Waggerman and Lee Shapiro, both wonderful local artists.

Here at my first market of the summer, is a photo of three darling children from our neighboring town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. They had a few of my books but purchased ones they didn't have. It is so much fun for me to meet the children and parents who read my books. What a treat for me! Maggie stayed home as it was too hot that day for her, but we had her fill-in.

Shining Stars

Every year in March, the wonderful Shining Stars organization comes to Aspen. So many children who have been dealing with cancer never get an opportunity to come and ski. Kathy Gingery is an angel I have known for many years and I so believe in her dreams that have become a reality year after year.

I'm always so impressed by the volunteers and the outpouring of love from our little mountain town. A few years ago, I decided besides giving $ I wanted to give my books away as a small token.

This photo was taken of a young man who will take a little bit of Aspen home with him. I gave away over 90 books with great joy!!

I thought you all might like to see a photo of the real Maggie. It's June in Aspen and the weather has been fabulous. Maggie has been thoroughly enjoying herself sunning, swimming in our pond and relaxing in her older years. We're taking a long walk today so she can see all her doggie friends.

We're excited to be a part of the children's events this summer in the Mall. We'll be reading to kids. I will have a booth this summer at the Farmer's Market.

Hope you're all enjoying summer as well!
