This week I’ve been waking up every morning thinking of things I am thankful for. I don’t know if it’s the season or what, but I’ve been overwhelmed with gratitude for so many things: the health of my family, my home, good food, our first egg from our hens, and you, our readers. The list goes on and on. And it seems when I read the “other” news in the world, my gratitude grows and grows. This week, many of you will be getting a gift from The Bloom as a thank-you for your financial support. As I’ve said so many times before, The Bloom can’t do what it does (free subscriptions for all) without the support of our readership. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
I’m excited to get a chance to tell you about a new restaurant and tasting room in Lakeport! Then Kathleen is going to tell us about the tiny creatures, antlions. You’ve probably seen them and not known what they were. Then catch up on the local music events happening in the area, read some good news, poetry, and some local history. It’s a great start to a great weekend in Lake County.
