"Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?"

Sunday, October 11, 2015


There were quite a few festivals this weekend and I only made it to two of them. Today I went to a Heritage Festival with my parents and saw some sheep and goats and lots of rustic wool, but as I am heading north on Friday, I refrained from acquiring anything except photos. Isn't this one a dear?

These two were too hungry to pose.

But this little goat didn't mind.

I spent some time in my craft room last night, and as usual, Gracie kept me company.

Melissa and I went to an Indie Craft Show yesterday that was held at a local brewery. Here she's checking out some clothing made on site.

A young boy at a potter's wheel; not sure if he threw anything or was just taking a break.

Melissa and I had some coffee afterwards at a cafe around the corner from her apartment.

And here's Gracie, keeping close to me as I get ready to watch the newest show on PBS: Home Fires. I hope you're watching it, it's terrific!

Have a great week!



  1. I have Home Fires DVR'ed but haven't watched it yet. Gracie clearly likes it when you are home to be supervised by her!

    Have a wonderful time at Rhinebeck and take lots of pictures so I can live vicariously. :-)

  2. I want to watch Home Fires, but my Sundays have been too busy. I'll try to stream online.
    Have a great time at Rhinebeck!

  3. You had a full and fun weekend! Still jealous of everyone heading to Rhinbeck, have lots of fun!
