Coastal Living-The Recipe

This is actually from August but I have to write it somewhere because it is worth repeating. My brother-in-law concocted this beverage using stuff I had around.

Blue Curaco
Clear Rum
Pinapple Juice

It was both delicious and beautiful. Darker blue=deeper water (more curaco) and lighter turquoise=shallower water (less curaco). I liked the shallow water better.

This along with the Coastal Living Magazine and a hammock = summer relaxation! Good bye summer, I'll miss you.

Looking forward to fires in the fireplace and long scrabble games instead though.

New Post?!?!

I'm back. I seem to have accidently taken a few weeks off. Where does the time go?

So, my plans for the weekend include organizing my photos and posting some on here. There are more mushroom pictures to post. I never realized there were so many different types of mushrooms in Michigan and at this time of year! Once I started looking they are everywhere. There is a huge clump growing in my neighborhood. I'm hoping to remember my camera the next time I walk and am also hoping they don't decide to mow their lawn soon.

Also on the agenda for the weekend - more art journaling. I saw this lovely post by Suzanne Cabrera on her blog the open [sketch]book and I'm inspired to do some investigating of my own. What haven't I seen in my neck of the woods that I should take the time to see?

And it's time to decorate for the fall. My petunias have had it and they must go. The front of my house has been so neglected this summer. I must do something. It may be time to call a landscaping company.

Looking Down While Walking

Sunday was a beautiful, sunny, cool, breezy day. Perfect for a walk in the woods with my sister. There were lots of logs and tree roots, so we spent most of the time looking down. This is what we saw.
