Details A10.03

pressed leaves mid-morning lunch electric bus wires reflection spinning out bike happy family supper fishy costume freeing those leaves (oh well!)

Life has been very busy lately, I imagined that fall would actually bring more free time since our garden isn't as demanding, but oh how wrong I was. I did start taking a yoga class on Monday evenings which has been a great way to begin the week and it feels good to do something 'just for me'. We have still been finding plenty of time to get outside and enjoy the fall colors, but the leaves are starting to drop and I can feel winter on the way. I'm kind of excited, we are determined to get Little S on skis this year!

I'm pretty much done with a Halloween costume for Little Smith. It's very simple, but I am not at all crafty with things like this and I am embarrassed to admit how long it took to sew a few felt fish scales onto a hoodie (I was up after 2AM twice- not the best use of my time I know!).

Today my mom and her dog, Blue, come to visit for the week-end. Some friends are joining us for dinner tonight, tomorrow we plant bulbs during the day and Big Smith and I get to go to a Trey show at night. We are giddy, we haven't been to any concerts since a few weeks before Little S was born and that's a looong time for a couple of music lovers.

So the busyness will continue through the week-end, but it should be a whole lot of fun. Now I am off to tackle my mountain of laundry before guests arrive. No one should ever see this much laundry, I wish I couldn't see it either. Happy week-end!

  2. Your photos are so beautiful. Please tell me you're doing something with photography for a living, or at least thinking about it :)

    Starting the week off with a yoga class does sound nice and your weekend seems like it's going to be a lot of fun! Enjoy your date night :)

    1. Thanks Jackie, that's very kind. I'm not a photographer but art + architecture is related. I did also go to art school with plenty of photo classes in the mix :)

  4. I think I spy a town diner mug! Which just so happens to be what I'm enjoying my coffee out of right now. :) Miss that place! Don't remind me about the laundry.. We have out of town guests headed our way tonight for the weekend and then a new batch coming in on Sunday and I'm...not doing anything to prepare. Your weekend sounds like it's going to be amazing! Enjoy your concert and your time out!

  5. Good luck with the laundry. I have my own pile of the stuff waiting for me to violently ignore when I get home from class this afternoon. Sigh. Looking forward to hearing about the concert!

  7. Those pressed leaves are beautiful.

    I am feeling some anxiety with all the leaves changing, like I need to be outside ALL the time so I don't miss a single second of their vibrant colors! They really are gorgeous in Boston right now.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  9. Oh, man. I am writing this with my own mountain of laundry in the other room!

    Hope you have a great weekend with your mama. And good for you for taking a yoga class! I am trying so hard to get back into running, but by the end of the day I am so gosh darn tired that it's the last thing I want to do!

  12. Laundry must be a bug going around, because we have a motherload of it too. Ugh.

    Your pictures are so gorgeous that every time I look at your blog, I wonder why I am not living in Massachusetts because it's so beautiful.
