"Green-veined leaves suddenly blushing copper, 
bronze-edged trees swaying in autumn breezes,
gold foliage drifting past pewter branches baring all
brass-hued leaflets falling in grace."
~ Terri Guillemets, "In the Autumn Wood"

This week has been very hectic and I've felt a bit out of my gourd. But there's no school tomorrow and we're spending the long weekend in Door County. Some fresh air, beautiful foliage, crisp apples, long hikes -- I think that's exactly what I need to recharge and feel like me again.

Tonight we're staying at the beautiful Foxglove Inn in Sturgeon Bay.

October 19, 2016 (293/366) Meet Bacon!

"I think we love bacon because it has all the qualities 
of an amazing sensory experience." ~ Alexandra Guarnaschelli

Today was CCR Day @ PHS (College and Career Readiness). We hosted professionals from within the community, and although I was so happy to host the photographer/entrepreneur from z2, I just had to visit the veterinarian who came with Bacon -- yes, that's her name! Bacon is "Pretty in Pink" right down to her hoofs!

Duck Hunting

"Hunting wasn't a just sport. It was a way to be intimate with nature." ~ Ted Kerasote

My dad was the ultimate outdoorsman. He loved hunting, fishing, camping, boating -- anything that enabled him to commune with nature. I never really understood the allure of the hunt, but I always respected Dad's love of nature; and, of course, I doted on the labradors and beagles that joined our family to help Dad hunt ducks and rabbits respectively. Dad would have loved Piper -- she's supposed to be a rabbit dog (and she love that too), but these days, her favorite sport is "duck hunting."
