Peace in the Valley
we took a ramble today through the giant oaks of the valley by the river, on winding horsetrails that crisscross through watering springs and frog song, seed pods and pussywillow.
a mile out there are some abandoned buildings, an old west movie set years ago.
this crumbling little house has a shelf of books to trade (romance novels...) and tattered curtains in the windows.
a bench propped between two massive stumps.
a doorway facing the rising sun.
looks like a good hide out to me.
mice and squirrels nest here.
hang your hat and stay awhile...
the january sun has been palely loitering round these parts.
watch out for these pricklers when you lay down to read.
the days are short and sweet
pink plaid overshirt: darin's, thrifted
magenta plaid sundress: f21 clearance from this little excursion
shorts: cut offs i made from thrifted jeans
tights: from target years ago
boots: my best Ariat cowboy boots gifted from dad years ago (SO comfortable)
jewelry: all made by Em
and the owls are out at night.
i am packing for utah;
addie and i are leaving at six in the morning. we go in search of snow.
and of course: family, love, sundance, thrift stores, babies, adventure...
