Always

I unpicked the drawstring channel and removed the twill handle, this bag is taller than usual and it was just flopping around.

“Yes, yes,” I’d rather have a bossy Tom Nook annoyingly flopping around anyways.

Homemade coconut raisin granola with walnuts and chia, slightly under roasted so it’s still got some chew, mixing in the raisins and coconut after it’s out of the oven, but still warm.

Sometimes when we make homemade granola, we take it slow, keeping it natural using local maple syrup and honey, other times we take the absolute easiest route and use regular old store bought pancake syrup. There are no rules.

Catching the end of lilac season, and the beginning of spider season.

It’s October

I forget how quick the light changes as soon as it’s decidedly fall. I’m taking note of the dirty hues for future color palettes and appreciating the unkept beauty and melancholy of the last roses. Still feeling a little of that unsettled creativity, not knowing what will be the next shift, getting comfortable sitting in the uncomfortable. There’s a dark wash of color on my hook, and moments when we’re desperately trying to hang on to the light, capturing the late blooms in crochet and making jewels with the lavender from grandmas garden. It’s October, it’s familiar.

Already August

It’s still mostly summer, but it’s slowly changing to that time of year when the nights are a bit cooler, windows open more often than not, and all the outside things are getting a little overgrown and I couldn’t care less. Today is pretty warm and sticky, so we’re keeping life small and portable.
