The Weekend . . .

 ~find the recipe here~

The first frost has come and farmers’ markets are wrapping up. All the more reason to scoop up the last fresh apples and bring them home to make a scrumptious comforting dessert.

Just a week ago, the trees were just beginning to turn colors and now a few gold gems decorate the sidewalks and streets. Before we know it there will be a blanket of beautiful hues to walk through enjoying the crunch under our feet.

I adore this time of year, pulling out my wellies, wrapping scarves more often and watching a game or two of the baseball play-offs. These are just a few of the activities that can only happen altogether during fall.

This week on the blog offers inspiration about where to find opportunity and when to catch it before it slips by, as well as a few books mentioned in This & That that I think you might enjoy. And if you happen to be traveling to Portland, I’ve come up with TSLL city guide full of places to eat, shop, sleep and enjoy. Have a look . . .

The Weekend . . .

Jan 18, 2013

For myself, a long weekend full of celebration, learning and relaxation awaits, and for you as well I hope. A good friend has been exhaustively working on establishing the Josephy Art Center in my childhood town, and I am thrilled to celebrate her efforts and toast to what is sure to be a great venue for expanding the arts to people in the community. Along the same vein, I will be trying to hone my photography skills as I am eager for the one-on-one lesson scheduled this weekend. Who knows what I will walk away with, but it won’t be for a lack of talent that is offering the knowledge.

Here is a look back on the week on the blog. Oh, and be sure to check out this week’s newsletter as the winner of Julie Vos’ silver link necklace is announced!
