The Still Life: Apple Pies and Dragonflies

Here's a little glimpse at the past week in my quiet life as an artist and locavore.

I love the smell of pencil shavings.
My favorite cookbook ever.
I couldn't decide if this dragonfly was awesome or gross.
Playing with my colored pencils.

Dylan has the coolest toys...these are MY favorites to play with.
I gave Ed a haircut. It made him happy...
...it also made a mess.
Dylan got his first tummy bug and ate his weight in crackers.

My "Joy of Cooking" is well-loved.
Farmer's market caprese.
Fiesta time! Making salsa...
...and cumin lime tortilla chips.

The first roses of the season.
Organic locally blended tea + local honey = the perfect cup
I ate pie...with ice cream...for breakfast...twice.
It's azalea season...there are bright, brilliant colors everywhere!

This week felt like it was at least 9 days long...9 good days though. I went to Gossett's Farmer's Marketbaked my first pie in months, gave Ed a haircut, finished my color study for "Triad," played around with some new recipes, watched lots of Portlandia, and watched my baby boy walk on his own for the first time! The only down side was that poor D had his first ever tummy bug, but luckily he's over it now. I hope the past week has been full of beauty, joy and inspiration for all of you too!
