Our new Ashland home is taking shape. The kitchen cabinets went from boxes to walls quickly. The countertops will take at least two weeks.
Meanwhile, the dining room serves as a flooring storage area and makeshift kitchen.
It has been microwave gourmet, but Sue remembered today that a camping stove arrived with our stuff from Mariposa last weekend. That and a new grill will help make meals a bit more interesting for the next month or so until the kitchen and flooring are completed.
Tonight, it was time to get away from the mess and take a picnic a few steps to downtown for another Oregon Shakespeare Festival Green Show. L.A.’s Versa-Style Dance Company wowed a lively audience with an energetic hip-hop performance.
Chocolate truffle ice cream was a perfect encore!
Project Trio from Brooklyn, N.Y. was a hit at a recent Green Show.

The arts enrich Ashland in so many ways and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival plays a huge part. Eleven plays, including three from Shakespeare, are part of a 10-month program from February through November. Last year, about 110,000 people bought nearly 410,000 tickets for shows at the three theaters. The festival was a nearly $90 million boost to the local economy.
But one of the best parts is free: the Green Show, performed six evenings a week at the Shakespeare complex.
St. Cinder did their own green show downtown, attracting a crowd and plenty of cash during an entertaining performance.
This classic VW van and smaller twin are quintessential Ashland.
