nature’s grellow October 25, 2012

I can hear the leaves falling on the ground outside. A gentle wind. A rustling snap.

Holding on?

The Yellow Trees.

They stand against the clear blue sky torchlike and bright.

Incredibly, warmly, translucent, they shine.

So easy to stroll under their arms, looking up, all the while walking and listening to the scrunch and pop of the fallen leaves underfoot. I twirl.

Magically inviting, the deck bekons with a task all its own: more double-point needle knitting!

Thanks to everyone who left hints and tips — I found I was enjoying an accidental arrangement (that most of you mentioned was the way for speed)…

a day in the woods October 19, 2012

This time of the year is so wonderful here in the woods…

The trees are painted with color and there’s been a nip in the air (and a little rain).

My BKFF (best knitting friend forever), Eden, from Chicago, came out to the lil’ log cabin for a visit this week.

I could not resist all the farmer’s market veggies that were about and made us a pizza for lunch.

They were oven roasted (450 / drizzle with olive oil / check every 5 min) before I went to pick E up from the train.

When we got back, I rubbed a pre-made crust (Artisan, thin) with some olive oil to crisp it up a bit and turned the oven back on.

OOPS! Forgot to take the roasted veggies out but something wonderful happened during the pre-heating – they blackened around the edges and carmelized WOW – zucchini and wonderfully colored peppers – yum!

Then, the crust was baked for <10 min and treated to a few spoonfuls of regular red pasta sauce. Then on went the roasters:

While they had been roasting, I’d sauteed a bunch of sliced mushrooms and these were along with sliced black olives and a dusting of cheese (mixed Italian?! from AL’s) joined in the mix.

Now, another turn in the oven and VOILA (& I almost had it all eaten before I remembered to take this)

Fortified, we went out for a walk to the lake and saw these lovelies coming down the creek.

There were five altogether – including a “teen-age” male that had the start of some antlers that looked like furry pompoms on his head.

Even though this looks like it could be Florida (that’s golden rod in there!) this is actually Lake Michigan (as seen by my iphone) which is about a third of a mile from the cabin. When the wind whipped up and the sky darkened the water to navy on the horizon, we remembere: the cabin was waiting in the wood, warm…
