looking for geese mid-painting working away jasmine (i think?) arranging gourds monkey shrieks watching fall mom's prized dahlias night owl
Is it really Friday already? I am still reliving last week and wondering if I accomplished anything at all in this one. These are a few images from our vacation at my mom's, most of these were actually one afternoon wherein Little Smith and I played on the porch, rolling around gourds from the garden and gazing at geese while Big Smith painted the house (which came out really beautiful and I wish I had a full 'after' picture but the rain kept preventing it).
I am woefully behind in updating this space. I still have so many pictures from last week that I really want to share, plus we are celebrating Big Smith's birthday this week-end which means I'll have some recipes for treats (cranberry coffee cake and birthday cake too provided it works out)... I may need to find time to post this week-end to squeeze it all in. I'll try.
It's cold here today and I have the heat cranking which is always a big mark that winter is on the way. I am also realizing that I am not very inspired by any of my cold weather clothes. I've gained a few pounds since I stopped breastfeeding and summer dresses were more forgiving than everything that barely zips which I am finding at the back of my closet. I guess in a few weeks it will be so cold that I can just throw a giant sweater over half zipped skirts and call it a day :)
Happy week-end, and hopefully I'll be back with some more pictures (for anyone can stand it)!
