8am saturday

stumbling to the clothesline before i even had coffee, this is the sight that jarred me awake. still in pjs, i marveled at the beauty of this saturday morning.

of all the long weekends in the year, this one's my favorite. summer's tasks are done but it's not yet time to begin the winter ones. today i'll shop for apples at the farm stand and woolen socks at the craft fair. tomorrow i'll bake and paint. i may begin to clean up the flower garden this weekend in anticipation of putting it to bed next month. but at some point, i'll be sure to go barefoot to the adirondack chair to read or doze or just daydream. it's that kind of weekend. it's that time of year.

This is such a lovely, contemplative post. It really made me stop, and to think. penny

Beautiful POST!! Beautiful DAY! And, as always, lovely photos! I will enjoy seeing YOUR fall colors as ours are now and will continue to be crunchy dull browns.

We were both out at 8 AM in our pajamas, taking pictures of yellow trees. :)

Although we are busy with packing in anticipation of moving, I am hoping to have weekends just like this. I love your quote from Thoreau.

It sounds like you will have a lovely weekend. It's too cold and rainy here to sit outside with bare feet. Nor can I hang out the laundry. Buying woolen socks sounds great. They ought to keep your feet warm this winter. Be careful not to wear any holes in them!
