Chrysanthemum on the table in an airport restaurant. Flight delayed, but that just added an hour to our mini vacation.

Tall building from the hotel window.

Raising a glass to twenty-five years of marriage. The date itself was earlier in the month, but the weekend excursion is now. (No free wifi in hotel, though, so drawings will be added to the posts when I'm home again.)

The scent fills the room.

The same clementine, smaller.

In the market again, even as we still have real tomatoes. 

(Note - didn't realize that this was out of focus last night - at work now, with sketchbook at home . Will replace with a clearer picture this evening. Meanwhile, just imagine that a rainy morning in Pittsburgh has blurred your vision slightly...)

(Replaced.)

Another one. Trying to remember the taste and texture of summer meals as we head into cooler nights.

We have a frost advisory tonight, so it was a good excuse to move the houseplants inside for the season.

Driftwood stick found on one of our summer excursions.
day2825.jpg

Tangled, slightly.
day2824.jpg

We are still getting amazing tomatoes from our farm share.
day2823.jpg

Half was used in supper-making.

I just need to remember to use this technology for filing and organizing clothing.

New comfy chair in the corner of the kitchen.

Metal water bottle is flask-sized, and the lid closes with an old-fashioned wire bail. Since it doesn't hold a lot of water (1/2 liter) it's never very heavy.

Just finished rereading it.
day2818.jpg

New purchase.  Most of the houseplants are still outside, though.  
day2817.jpg

Slipping out of view.
day2816.jpg

A present. While all the other houseplants are still outside for the summer, it has the corner of the kitchen to itself.
day2815.jpg

The left one.
day2814.jpg

On the counter, in need of recharging.

Not exactly sure which one this is - probably school gate or filing cabinet.
day2812.jpg

Favorite cotton socks. Not hand knit, but in every other respect, just right.
day2811.jpg

Black china marker, drawn with black china marker. What's the least I can draw and still get the feel of it?
day2810.jpg

I forgot that I had a black china marker. Very crayon-y to draw with - and resists water in the same way the white one does.
day2809.jpg

From our lake visit. We gathered beautiful smooth stones to remember the place, the time, the view.
day2808.jpg

Hard to keep up with these at this time of year.
day2807.jpg

Returned to the beach this morning for a while...
day2806.jpg

But not the ocean - even though it felt like that. We drove to Presque Isle state park, only a couple of hours from home, and sat on the shore of Lake Erie. Wind, waves, smooth sand, mild water... a perfect mini-break for the holiday weekend.

Local. The season will end, but meanwhile...
