This week was full of back-to-school excitement and the slanting light of late summer. Soon there will be a chill in the air and I’ll be able to wear a sweater and socks. My favorite time of year.
An all local dinner (veggies from our garden), beef from up the hill. Yum!
Baby new potatoes with lots of butter, herbs and parmesan cheese. Also yum!
The smallest frog, an expert at camouflage.
Keeping cool in the summer heat. Maybe sometime I’ll try resting my belly on the cool tiles.
I couldn’t help myself, I dyed some scarves.
Mysterious pancakes emblazoned with Oak Trees.
Ended the week with a visit from a dear friend and a sun ray.
Well all, I just couldn’t help myself. I love the process of shibori dyeing so much that I just had to make some scarves!
These scarves are a blend of linen and rayon with a beautiful drape. The indigo blue color is traditionally used to dye blue jeans and I haven’t met a skin tone that it doesn’t look radiant on.
If you’d like to have one of your own you can find them in my shop on etsy.
Here’s a link to my etsy shop.
All my best to you!
Summer bliss, a darn good week all in all.
My cast comes off tomorrow, so next week is looking up too!
I love my peg leg but not as much as my actual foot. Goodbye cast, you’ve been swell!
The lace of Queen Anne and Susan’s brown eyes.
Fresh picked blueberries and vanilla ice cream for breakfast. Don’t mind if I do.
Twilight Gin and Tonic. Is there anything better in the summer? The blueberry addition was relish, next time I’ll muddle them a bit.
Birthday kebobs at the fire pit. Made with local beef, zucchini and tomatoes from the garden. Maybe next year I’ll grow the mushrooms and peppers too.
Peas bursting from their pods. So juicy and sweet.
Happy Birthday! Homemade chocolate raspberry cake with raspberries from Darling’s farm. Next time I’ll eat two pieces. 🙂
Friends and family enjoying the evening twilight. Bliss.
I got a new lens for my camera just in time to capture the beautiful Full Blue Moon.
The hummers go through about 6 cups of nectar every 4 days. The air is literally a-buzz.
Baby bunnies, it doesn’t get much cuter!
