There are two types of bloggers, I believe. The Expert Blogger who makes the bold statement, “I am a pro, follow along with me and you will learn something important.” And then there is the Journey Blogger who says, “Follow along with me as I learn this thing, make mistakes, and may even have a few successes.” Oh sure there are some of us in the middle of those two scenarios, closer to one than the other. I am closer to the Journey theme. I think you can see that here in my own blog, I make things, sometimes for the first time and then tell you about it. Some newbies may think I am the expert but when I compare myself to others I seem the beginner, it’s all relevant don’t you think?
Right now I am tilting deeper into the Journey side of things. I am on a new adventure and would like you all to follow along with me. It will be fun, funny, frustrating, stressful, wonderful, and a bit scary at times. I have mornings when I wake up and say, “What have I done?” Then some days where I am over the moon with excitement and more fresh ideas.
So what is this thing Robin Sue has gotten herself into…
Big Red Kitchen Cooking Salon goes to Market. The Reston Farmer’s Market at Lake Anne here in Virginia that is. I will be one of the vendors during the Saturday Market offering Cooking Salons to my “Distinguished Guests.” Essentially teaching cooking classes right there, in the market, during market hours! Isn’t that the coolest thing ever!
Right now I am trying to overcome one major obstacle: power. Power as in electricity. Most business minded people have asked me, “Do you have students yet?”
“No,” I say, “and they are not students, they are my Distinguished Guests.” I have the “build it, they will come” mentality, if I put up a tent the Distinguished Guests will come. But no power equals no Salon. The power has been promised but I need to know how far it is, how many outlets, and can the power handle three appliances? Oh, and if it is exclusively mine, mine, and all mine. I would hate to have to fight off (with a spatula) the little old lady selling plastic canvas tissue holders who insists on plugging in her fan when temps reach 98 degrees. See what I mean?

Did I get the power? Here is the update.
