What I’m Digging

Happy Friday, friends! Historically, Huxley has always been a late sleeper (I know, I know, poor me!). During our trip this past weekend, though, either the full moon shining in our room, or travel excitement, or, well, I don’t know what, but something had him waking up around 6-6:30 a.m. every day. Now that we’re home, I’ve found that it’s me that’s the early riser. I’ve always been a morning person, rolling right out of bed shiny-eyed, happy, and raring to go (again, poor me), but this new wake-up time is better than ever. I kiss my little guy’s head, quietly climb out of bed, put the kettle on for coffee, get myself a bowl of yogurt and honey, and settle in at the laptop before I hear the inevitable pitter patter of little feet getting out of the bed and running in to mama.

In other news, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that intrigued and inspired me this week:

*It’s the season of leaf printing.
*Synesthetic Decorating is absolutely fascinating!
*This cat has his priorities right.
*Honeycomb pumpkins.
*Had a hazelnut gelato ice cream sandwich here that, on it’s own, made the trip totally worth it.
*Make 5 simple soaps.
*An apple a day really works!
*Met Gustav in Brooklyn; great guy, gorgeous jewelry.
*Corks as fire starters-who knew?
*A new book, and a special cake (fig & polenta, oh yes!).

We’re off in just over an hour to Sky Top, my beloved orchard. I’m hosting another event for the new book, Handmade Gatherings. Apples. Babies. Cider. Hay rides. Mountain vistas. Goats. Donuts. So. Much. Goodness!

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!

*I confess to dressing my “pumpkin” to match the patch, because that’s just how I do, ya’ll.
