picture heavy

a picture heavy post since i have not shared anything all week. we are still adjusting to the new schedule but the feeling of fall coming makes it seem like we are on the right path. the smell of everything cooling down makes me feel like keeping on some sort of schedule. maybe that is an ingrained response to the old days of schooling.

eliot was dressing up like daddy on his way to school.

we took a trip to one of my old favorite childhood places, cousins island. it is accessible by a long bridge and it is never particularly crowded. it is a small beach that is fun at low tide because it has a large sandbar that extends quite far. it is also, as we found out, a haven for hermit crabs. they were everywhere. eliot was happy staying in one spot so i spent quite a bit of time observing hermit crab dramas. i was completely engrossed.

below are a few more pictures of our last Audubon adventure. we remembered to bring some friends and a frog catching net this time. it was a fun afternoon.

my sewing machine is out and i hope to get to a few projects this week. i am waiting, impatiently, for a new pattern from oliver and s for a winter jacket for eliot. i cant wait to get my hands on it! i think another pair of pants is on the way and i hope to finish some over due ideas i have had kicking around. the rug hooking is going slowly but surely as well.

have a nice weekend!

Beautiful pictures! My son would burst with excitement to find all those hermit crabs! I'd love to see a pic of your sewing machine cover made with the vintage sheet.

Did I know you were rug hooking? I can't remember. That's on our list of "some day". You'll have to post some progress reports.

My mom was in your neck of the woods the week after her brother died. She made it down to Portland to your old building to see her cousin's photo show and then they had lunch right near there at a restaurant that brings your dog a bowl of water first thing. :) She said she had lobster three days in a row.
