Pull Up a Chair

I worked all of Labor Day weekend but we were up at Hasty the weekend before. Most all of the siding was up as was the decking for the balcony. The weather was lovely- warm but not hot during the days but chilly at night. In fact it got down into the 30's every night we were up there. I got up early one morning, made a pot of coffee and brought it up to the balcony to watch the woods wake up. Mist was rising from the creek and the sun shining through it gave it life. The white spots in the bare birch branches on the photo are big spider webs coated in dew. The Wild Turkey Gang was chuckling on the ground below the balcony, a Pileated Woodpecker called from across the creek and several Turkey Vultures were floating toward the south. I wish you all could have joined me!
I've got a few more pictures to post tomorrow showing the progress on our building. It's really coming along! I also have to pack my bags tomorrow because Ruthie and I are going on a road trip! We're going to Wausau, Wisconsin for the weekend to see Julie Zickefoose and her wonderful artwork at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. It's going to be a blast!

Oh Lynne, I love that photo! Reminds me of some lovely mornings I've spent watching the sunrise from my deer stand. I bet it smelled deliciously piney too, didn't it?
See you tomorrow!!

There are few things more inspiring than to watch the woods awaken. I can almost smell the coffee. It's such a joy to see your dream coming to life.

Enjoy the trip to WI.

This is truly a beautiful photo. I can just smell the trees, the fresh air, and perhaps a steaming cup of coffee. Wonderful capture, Lynne!

Lovely photo, Lynne. It's easy to see why you love it there. And it's good to hear the garage is coming along so well.

Have a great time in Wausau. I hadn't heard of this event until you posted, and now I'm jealous I can't go. :)

What a gorgeous photo - I love how the sunlight is streaming in! I'd love to sit in a chair and enjoy the view and the birds w/ a cup of hot chocolate! Have a great trip!!!
