{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

FOR TODAY

Outside my window... is a beautiful sunrise beckoning me out of bed.

I am thinking... about everything that needs to be done in the next few weeks and how to tackle it all. My grands are coming to dinner tomorrow and next week my girlfriends are coming for a little retreat up here on the mountain.

I am thankful (surprisingly this morning) for... my husband inadvertently waking me up at 6:30. This meant I got my early morning quiet time that I probably would have slept through otherwise.

From the learning rooms... we'll start our Thanksgiving Tree!

From the kitchen... Hmmm... I'll have to think on that one. Maybe we'll have burgers or meatballs and gravy for dinner. I'll get my kombucha kit finally started up, too! Time to menu plan for the next 2 weeks, as well.

I am wearing... currently jammies. I'll scrounge up some work around the house clothes because we need to do laundry this week while the sun shines.

I am creating... knitted goodies for the holidays and trying to get the courage to finish my grandmother's quilt.

I am going... nowhere for now. So glad to stay home for a few days!

I am reading... Silas Marner. Nothing like catching up on a few classics I never got to read before.

I am hoping... I can tackle the house without getting sidetracked today.

I am hearing... nothing but the quiet sounds of sleeping inside and the early morning birds chirping outside.

Around the house... the dust rhinos need to be wrangled!

One of my favorite things...

A few plans for the rest of the week: Finding my home again under all the living that's been happening, Dinner with 4 generations, Mid-week birthday party sleepover, and some 4-H project meetings. There's always other things I'd like to add to the list, but I'll keep it realistic!

Thanks to the Simple Woman's Daybook for the prompts... let's try to make it a regular occurrence!

A little hiatus, but I'm back thanks to The Daily Shoot.

Set an alarm for a random time today. Any time. When it goes off, pick up your camera and find a photo near where you are.

I used the Random Time Generator and headed out around 12:53. Our chickens were lying in wait so we sat down to hang and take shots. This flock is the friendliest we've ever had -- they all love to eat out of our hands!

Little Mushroom

Another great day for cutting firewood. 60s and Sunny. We were hauling dead logs of madrone off the hills by the lower well and came across this little lone mushroom. So perfect, I had to capture before anyone accidentally rolled a log over it.

Goodnight 2009!

December's been a bit rough on us health-wise, but we still tried to ring it and 2009 out at Midnight. Unfortunately a few of us just didn't make it that long!

We got a special treat today -- snow! Perfect timing for a holiday card shoot!

A day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium with friends... whirlwind-y, but fun.

Wintery Sun

The clouds slid overhead like a flannel blanket making the whole world a bit gray and winterish. Made me long for those long, cold wintry days in ND or NH. Something seems a bit off being able to hang laundry and have it dry in a hour in November. I miss snow.

Sitting by the fire tonight. There's something to be said about the saying that cutting your own wood warms you three times over -- we weren't cold all day!
