sometimes, i do take a break from work.
here are some little bits, captured less-than-perfectly through the lens of the camera on my phone. sadly, i've gotten out of the habit of taking my good digital camera around with me on adventures....
lately, b and i have been really into exploring the walking/hiking trails of the local nature preserves. this was a shot from today's walk. on this walk i found my first hen-of-the-woods; too bad it was past its peak/season.
then we discovered baldwin's book barn --- possibly the most beautiful bookstore i've ever visited. it's five floors of books in an old house/barn!
the majority of the stacks on the upper floors are made from old fruit crates; beautiful!
on the way home we passed this sight:
only in pennsylvania.... (right?)
rewind a few weeks; we carved pumpkins; (can you guess which one i did?!)
and then the next day it snowed on them. (crazy!)
the next week, niece bella and i used skewers dressed up as flags to save nephew aidyn's birthday cake from slippery doom:
(we called it the muddy river cake. it may not have been my prettiest, but it was darned delicious!)
and lastly, one of my latest little joys; watching the sunrise from my pillow;
sometimes emil watches it with me, too.
that's it for now! hopefully on my next post i can give a little recap of the art/craft fair i did this past friday night. til then, ciao, friends!
