took a trip. and enjoyed myself so much that I completely forgot about my camera.
even though there were plenty of views to capture.
but, I'm going to go back again.
and sometimes, it is better to leave the camera behind anyways.
a Fall party in my backyard. with a fire, string lights, torches & candles.
we ate chili with cornbread & biscuits. lots of cookies. & drank beer or irish whiskey.
it was super to have so many friends with me.
the night was cool enough that we all needed our jackets.
and the fire was just big enough to keep our feet warm.
it was so lovely, that I think I'll do it again next year.
tomorrow we set up camp. it will be our only moment of quiet in the hollow.
and then we have fun, for a week. am looking forward to feeling relaxed, taking naps under the walnut trees, and laughing. lots of laughing.
always good for the soul.
this annual camping therapy.
last year's was difficult for me, so plan on making up for it this year.
time for winfield.
