as I drove to norwalk, couldn't help but think that this place could be pretty if the rain would just stop. and it did - wednesday was still cold, but at least dry. and the trees kept many of their leaves despite the rain.
oh, and this marks the 6th hewitt office I've visited. atlanta (of course! and that might actually count for two), plus lincolnshire (no photo), orlando, the woodlands, charlotte and now norwalk.

...we won't have very many more weekday afternoons to enjoy the park, but it's wonderful while we can! coincidence, I'm sure, but we also found the time last tuesday. enjoying talk of cooking, the holidays, what katie might be planning for a special birthday dinner. we can cover a lot of ground in three laps!

so we'll spend a few more weekends down there. explore a few more places. make sure we can live with the heat of summer and the chill of winter. and see. and thank you to the wonderful friends who are willing to make the journey with us.

and sara made lunch. the tomato soup was delicious, no cream, just the right mix of herbs. the popovers with the soup was my idea. a weekend lunch I remember from growing up (except I'm pretty sure the creamy tomato soup we had included cream!)
and I got to spend several hours getting started on my week in the life album.

TasteFest appears to have been a huge success. I should know better tomorrow - four hours of counting, recording and balancing scheduled with the boys' tennis treasurer. But I am completely exhausted...an event of that magnitude, on a friday evening. simply not meant for anyone who lives a full life during the week.
And since this is the first stop at my computer since the dark early hours, I only have one fun thing to report. honestly, I decided this blog post was worth it when I found it. the bulky cabled sweater. close enough to the one I adored in the fall issue of in style to have me planning my trip to cast on cottage. as soon as the TasteFest balancing is done. you know, sort of like my reward.
Like the cold pizza and wine and computer time I was looking forward to all evening.
p.s. I am still hanging in there with the week in the life project. enough that I can reference the highlights of my day with photos. but I've definitely noticed a drop off in production - today yielded only 11 photos, compared with monday's 18. at this rate, I'll be down to single digits by the project's end :-)

...I admit it - I was obsessed by this photo all day. wanting to capture our chance just being (as opposed to being ashamed). I worked from home today (remnants of the atlanta metro gasoline shortage still causing disruption) and took full opportunity of my many conference calls to get that perfect shot.
I tried in the morning - when he naps on the family room rug.
And at lunch when he "did his business" - nothing good there - he doesn't lie on the ground outside.
And finally in the evening, while I'm straightening the kitchen, I found that on-the-ground pose (it did take me three tries!) captured above.
But my favorite shot of the day is this one - the blur of the tail-wagging welcome home marc.
