Here and There

I'm knitting this vintage baby hat for Willa. So she can look like even more of a pixie.

Fresh figs. From our CSA. Not sure is there is anything better on the planet.

I've had my nose deep in The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters. It spooked me so completely the other night that I thought I kept hearing things go bump in the Sugar Hollow night and was desperate for Corey to finish up work in his shop and return to the house to protect me. From myself.

Bulb planning - flowers and maybe garlic this year. I drool here.

I've been stamping the hell out of fabric these days. Once I got my textile paint and stamper rigged up correctly it was off to the races. A curtain for Willa and (finally) a clean bedspread for us. Amy Karol showed me how.

Speaking of races - we'll be here this morning. I'm most looking forward to to the terrier races and the beagle parade. I mean, really, a parade of beagles? I will be squealing louder than Willa, I'm sure.

Caprese Salad. Like three or four nights of the week. Corey calls it a pot of gold. Two minutes of chopping tops - tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and olive oil. My mouth is watering at the thought of it. And it is 9 a.m.

We had a short visit to the North Carolina shore earlier in the week. The beach in September really is the stuff. The drive was just as relaxing. We visited the big red tractor on our way down.

I LOVE Caprese salad too. Fresh mozarella is not widely sold in Australia - something I really noticed when I moved home from living in the UK, where you can buy it in all the supermarkets. I always relish it! Yum!

Ah! The beach in September. Nothing like it.

We go to the beach in October. I love that time of year at the shore.
Your daughter is growing so fast!

WHAT a tractor, WHAT a photo of a tractor. Love.
