Flamingo

How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo…How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”

Arthur Conan Doyle

Shoes On

Our third snow! Hoping the trend continues, though Juniper would prefer not having to put her shoes on.

Something strange happened here – kinda cool!

It’s a crazy beautiful black and white morning – Colorado Springs hushed and slow to welcome the day.

Happy Halloween!

Oh, the chill we’ve had as of late! But how a pretty frosted landscape makes braving the icy winds worth it.

Cuddling with my favorite newborn!

Made this beautiful cheesecake (those are vanilla bourbon apples on top) in celebration of the little one’s parents and grammie visiting. I gilded the lily by dousing it in caramel sauce. No one complained.

This and the two above: Linda Fleming

Most handsome and best companion

Greetings from Friday night! It is exceedingly rare for us to have two events in one day, so you know it’s pretty special when we do. The recently completed Ent Center for the Arts (such a gorgeous space!) hosted Sybarite5, a unique and fabulous string quintet that plays Radiohead covers, among other magical music, so, you know, deal sealed. The show was fun and funny and the music super wow, wow, wow. These people can play, y’all!

We also had a pre-show nosh at Tap Traders – my stellar, delightfully pink and purdy, sour beer was a blackcurrant, and the hubster’s an Oktoberfest – tis the season. If you’re local (even just passing through), head on over to the Ent Center to see Linda Fleming’s great works, outdoors and in, check out the multitude of other sculptures, the beautiful architecture, and the stellar view (photo below), of course. You won’t regret it!
