I live and write on Lingít Aaní, and gratefully acknowledge the past, present and future caretakers of this beautiful place, the Jilkaat Kwaan and Jilkoot Kwaan.

It’s Southeast Alaska State Fair time and Hospice Desserts to Die For booth time. You know what they say, when it rains it pours? So of course the berries need picking, the garden has exploded, the sockeye are running, the days are shrinking, the dogs are shedding, company is still arriving, and you are a tad behind at work. Oh aren’t we blessed?  Showcase your baking skill, and earn that  doing-good busy-baking feeling,  by (please) preparing a divine dessert (cake, pie, cupcakes, trifle?) for the Hospice booth. You may drop it off Thursday, Friday, or Saturday when you come to the fair.  if you’d like to challenge the Fruitcake Lady for a cameo in this year’s Christmas Play, better get baking for Hospice! (Thank you ever so much.) 

PS: There is choir practice tonight at 6 on the stage at the fair for our performance  Sunday at 12:30 with the Marvelous Miss Julia Scott.
