The photo above was taken Saturday morning when I was out foraging for birch bark. Yes! The excitement never ends! Basically, nothing starts a fire like dry sheafs of birch bark and there is no lazier firestarter than me. So, I generally have a bag with me that I fill as we wander over hill and dale.
And that’s what I was looking for when I came upon this wild bit of undergrowth.
The reason I stopped in the first place was the sun was pouring out from behind this tree and I thought to take a picture– but the photo wasn’t anything– see below:
I know– the kind of thing I would march on by and not even notice– but when I stopped and focused in– hell if it wasn’t wild with color.
Today, I am flying about. My niece Lauren– yes, she of the interior magic– is coming up for a few days. Not sure what we will actually do– perhaps some cookie baking, rice krispie treat shaping, surely some painting and rearranging, dog walking (obvs), maybe some ny’s card making? Either way, it’s gonna be good.
My world has been pretty much consumed with getting the 2011 SAW website loaded for launch– and I snapped this photo of my desk last night and honestly, I don’t even know what the hell is all over it except the box that says “shoe trees” is filled with knitting needles from my mom.
Yeah, Lauren can’t get here a moment too soon– I need some serious organizational mojo.
So– yes, I promised you the story of the big move– and I am totally going to post about it– but I can’t this morning because my head is not in the game. But I will– pinky swear. Meantime, enjoy the blue and whites of winter!
