Weekending.








Oh, Autumn.

I apologize if you guys are getting sick of these photos. It’s such a fleeting season that I never really get tired of them. I feel like you really can take too many pictures of flowers, but turning leaves? It’d take a swallowing sea of them for me to grow weary of their beauty.

How was your weekend?

Weekending.


I had an insanely lovely weekend. Let’s see: I went for a walk.

Because Saturday was beautiful.




Fell in love with autumn all over again.

Saw a deer on the way home.

Lit a fire.


Started a little fall cleaning in my studio!

Ate a wonderful Sunday dinner, including fried (homegrown) potatoes with fresh rosemary. On the grill.

I ate meat. For the first time in seven years.

Made two pies. (Recipe soon!)

I recently had a roll of film developed. As with all my film photos, they are straight out of the camera and untouched. I used a Canon AE-1 (as old as I am) and some expired 400 ISO film.

Autumn Approaching

Gems.

Milk House.
To the East.
Blueberry Leaf.

Just a few snaps taken on Sunday.

On a side note: I have an overwhelming urge to bake. I’m thinking of an Irish apple cake. Or blueberry muffins. Maybe some cornbread.

What about you? Does approaching autumn make you want to bake? Do you have any great recipe suggestions?

Gratitude Sunday


I feel like I am getting back to the regular blogging swing now. I have some posts planned (mostly old ones I never got around to sharing.) I’m finding blogging is beneficial to me. I really appreciate being able to let go of all this here, put it out there, share it. And the icing on the cake? That a handful of folks are actually interested in reading my ramblings and seeing my photos. Thank you.

Speaking of appreciation:

I recently came across Gratitude Sunday and decided to participate. It’s easy to focus on the negative. But really, I (and many of us—if you can read this, if you have access to a luxury like a computer and internet connection, you’re better off than many folks in the world) are lucky creatures. I need to realize this more, acknowledge it more.

We have been going through a lot in this house lately. It seems each of us is fighting a personal battle and then on top of that, a couple weeks ago, we got word that our lives would change and our security here was put into question. We are heading into new waters: it might be rough or it might be smooth sailing. But we’ve got each other. This little unit of five. Always.

I need to start focusing on all I have to be grateful for. This weekly recognition and declaration of gratitude here could help.

This week I am grateful for:

-A successful garden and a freezer packed with food. (We are actually on the lookout for second cheap/used chest freezer.)



-Tasty (homegrown) dinners. Especially when eaten outside. (Roasted green beans and onions, sauteed zucchini and summer squash, beets, and fresh ginger tea.)

-Music. I know that a pretty broad thing but it’s so important to me. There is little else that makes me feel safe and sound than getting lost in some tunes. (Most recent find: Of Monsters and Men)

Autumn
-To live in a four seasons clime. (That is on the cusp of my favorite season of all.)

-Receiving hugs. Lots and lots of them. (Especially when the hugger doesn’t mind dropping what they are doing to give one.)

Barn
-Remembering my family’s past here and hoping for it’s future.

Texture
-Textures and light.

What are YOU grateful for this week?

Lately.

Hopefully I’ll get back to some regular blogging soon but for now, here is a smattering of photos of the going-ons, garden happenings and other what-nots.


This may very well have been the prettiest thing I made all summer. And it was mighty tasty too—though, honestly, how can you go wrong with homegrown veggies topped with cheese? Here is the recipe.

Harvesting
Harvesting herbs, here and there.

Bean Blossom
The second planting of bush beans are doing very well.

Haul
The overall harvest is dwindling but still producing enough to please me. (We got so many peppers this year!)

Ginger
Been bringing my ginger in on these cooler nights.

Nigella
Curious critters are always following me around outside.

Morning.
And the morning light. Oh, the morning light.

Casting On
I cast on. (More details in a future post.)

Lark
I splurged. (Again, more details in a future post.)

What is life like by you?

Summertime.

Summer.
Apologies for being so absent here. I just don’t really have it in me to blog right now. There is a lot going on, a lot changing. Fittingly, though. Change. Autumn is coming.

I feel the need to scale back, simplify. Unfortunately, my blogging will be affected.

Most people don’t feel hopeful at the idea of winter approaching. But I do. Hopeful and comforted by the fact that things keep moving. The world spins madly on.

I hope you’re all well and enjoying the beauty that is late August.
