Colorado Springs

Took a step back in time today, to visit Glen Eyrie Castle, the home of William Palmer, the founder of Colorado Springs. Though we all know my Native American ancestors had a bit of a jump on him! It was a rare treat, as every room of the castle was available for viewing, including each of the guest rooms. We had two stellar and knowledgeable tour guides, and oohed and aahed over details grand and small.

As you can tell, I was most intrigued by the views, imagining quiet moments wandering from gorgeous window to window, conjuring the supreme quiet of every season: a drift of snow, froth of new green, arc of azure sky and rock formations and evergreens at every turn.

We ended our tour with a very British high tea, with that pretty salad, wee sandwiches, biscuits, and scones and equally good conversation. Thank you, Cori (front and center), for the marvelous suggestion. Happy Birthday to you!

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!”

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.
