It's been raining a lot since Friday, so we spent a lot of time
at home this past weekend, cooking and enjoying the weather.
I decided to try a little Zentangle again. Who doesn't love to doodle!?
You might remember this from a year ago.
But, since we are living in the PNW now I wanted to show you again the collage I made with
this huge maple leaf, that's larger than my hand.
The leaf I used in my collage came from this tree that is in front of the
school where Russell works.
I remember what a challenge it was trying to get that "single" leaf back to
Las Vegas last year,
without it getting squished on the plane. :-)
Now that we are here, I don't have to worry.
I picked these up the other day on our walk.
I pressed them in a book and will use them again in another collage.
Fetzer, Shatzie and Lucy have all been enjoying the rainy, cloudy weather too.
(I didn't get a picture of Shatzie yet...she's curled up on the new down comforter.)
Lucy likes this spot so she can watch the squirrels.
This weather makes me want comfort food. That could mean trouble right?
Russell made a delicious, lamb stew and this is the potatoes and
vegetables he roasted in the oven beforehand.
It was so yummy!
Click HERE for the recipe if you'd like to try it!
I also decided it was time now, to crochet an afghan.
Maybe I will finish it by next October. :-)
Hope you have a beautiful week!
Actually, this is my favorite time of the year when I get outdoors the most, but as soon as the snow flies I'll be in front of the fire just like Lucy.
we love collecting beautiful/unusual leaves too...a lot of ours have turned shades of yellow orange and red this past week :)
Have a lovely week!
Love your collages, girl you are so talented.
