leftover birthday cheesecake, yumyumyum.
breakfast and a good book, The Moon Sisters.
a new undertaking for papa, perhaps literally if he proves successful
the sauerkraut turned out quite well
birthday orchids from my pop
another batch of granola,
and quite of bit of popcorn popping these days.
there have been other things happening, too, of course. garden tending, parties with friends, another hike in the woods back to that same christmas-themed tree, a visit with my mom, the first fire in the wood stove! (followed by 70 degree days) and so on. Claire was invited by neighbors to go help them put up their Halloween decorations and eat themed snacks (brooms made out of pretzel sticks, shredded cheese and chive greens, for example). the thing that made the invitation so great, I thought, was that the neighbors are a female couple in their 60s, and that they invited three little girls. very sweet. she had a blast. there is a crow costume being made, farm school fun, plans for the Women's Herb Conference this weekend (papa is subbing for me at art class!), adventures in beekeeping (battening the hatches for the season, volume 3 (4?): and still so much to learn!) and tons of acorns falling from the sky.
but these little photos are a bit of what's happening in between
