let me count the ways i love my local farmers market...

...butternut squash, acorn squash, sweet potatoes, garlic, red & white onions, meyer lemons, yukon gold potatoes, shitake mushrooms, crimini mushrooms, fuji apples, bagels, raisin nut bread, crunchy rolls, sonoma county fresh pressed olive oil, portugese cheese, smoked cheddar cheese, dates, dill, basil, green beans, leeks, zuchinni, fennel, sugar pumpkins, red, yellow, green, & orange peppers, 3 kinds of grapes, eggs, & gorgeous succulent flowers... in other words, i love my farmers market A LOT of ways :)

here's hoping if you are in the states that you have a wonderful thanksgiving & a restful weekend.

i'm going camping in big sur - i've been so busy i need a break. and i'm also going to savor this break for when i need to remember it in the crazy december days ahead!

don't stuff yourself too much - or, just a little bit maybe :)

become (becoming way too crazy!)

become, originally uploaded by sproutgirl74 / jenifer lake.

-- i've been way too busy! made a bunch of small dictionary mailer collages to go to blankspace gallery...each year they have a holidayland sale & i've participated for the last few. lots of awesome goodies - go check them out.

also in the throes of planning & making work for our joint 2 lady show in january with katrina which is terribly exciting & kind of daunting.

& we've had parties & bals & celebrations to attend - not that i don't love them, but i still really want the snuggle up & drink tea weekend that is ever elusive at this point.

made a few changes to the blog - there is a fancy follow button over there on the left if you feel so inclined to add your name :)

& i'm counting down the days until thanksgiving. it really is a favorite holiday of mine & we are determined to rest during the break.

i'll come up for air at some point --- maybe in february? ;) have fantastic weeks!

paris photobooth missing paris. am feeling overwhelmed as this time of year always makes me feel. am overflowing with lists of to-do's. am wanting to snuggle and read books instead. am wanting a camp out in the bus soon. am wanting to eat soup & get a pedicure. am wanting to go on a long hike with dixie loo & the mister. am wanting to plan vacations to fun places instead. not wanting to glue one million sprout studio bits & bobs together. am not wanting to prep for too many craft fairs. am not wanting to stamp, make, create, construct, & hope for sales. wanting a very long weekend.
