homey things... apple sauce, fresh herbs, sketching, and of course... hot tea and old maid cats.

Week twenty-eight...

Thursday: photo 196: 
homemade apple sauce. my first time ever making the stuff. and let me tell you. like reallyreally scrape the edges of your bowl good. and the makesyouallwarmandfuzzyinside kind of good. a warm your soul good. :) 

 on the side is a grain/gluten free butternut/peanut butter bar type thing. 

Friday: photo 197:

fresh herbs growing in the garden. all green and alive. 

Saturday: photo 198: 

cleaning out the chicken coop... 'cause that's the cool kind of stuff you get to do when you live out in the country. ;) 

Sunday: photo 199:

sitting on my desk: e.e. cummings. he is good. brilliant, really. lately i've enjoyed thumbing through this collection of various poems he's written. categorized by topic, it was easy to find exactly what you wanted to read. at the beginning of each section was also a brief bit written about cumming's personal life which I also really enjoyed. 

plus the cover is quite pretty, eh? :) 

Monday: photo TWO-HUNDRED (WOOHOO!!!!!) :))) -

P90X and a towering glass of water. trust me, they go hand and hand. 

Tuesday: photo 201: 

lately i've picked back up my pencil and paper for some quiet sketching... for the first time since i was probably around 11ishh. sure, i've doodled here and there since, but not actual "drawing". like drawing a picture kind of drawing. 
when i was little i drew all.the.time. i'm not sure if i just grew tired of it, or if it's just because i got older and more interesting things than sitting still with a pen and paper came into my life... regardless, i stopped. lately the thought of becoming an illustrator has entered my mind, so i've given some time to serious drawing (and tea-drinking...of course)... i've surprised myself with how "right" it's felt. so... we'll see where it leads. :) photography is still definitely on my radar, though... :) 

picture on the left was the end goal for my portrait... 


Wednesday: photo 202: 

miss mo. evening skies, and she's still playing outside in the pretty green grass. 

look up... look down... look all around... (except at the camera of course)

she has some pretty funny facial expressions... :) love her. she's like, "you are so weird. please get that black thing OUT of my debonaire face!!"


  1. OH WOW. Not only photography but you can draw too! Just lovely... simply lovely!

  2. I really like the way the light caught your glass of water. Really neat!
    Also, it is awesome that you are sketching a 1940s lady. :) I hope your sketching pursuits go well for you. There is something wonderful about pursuing a skill and being diligent in it. So much to learn!
