old man no more....
on such a fine day--sunny, warmish, slight breeze--ventured west to new hampshire to visit the former home of the old man of the mountain. sadly, his face fell off some years back, but the mountain remains albeit a tad altered. this is a zoom photo of said mountain straight ahead at 12 o'clock and the vibrant foliage colors around (photo a bit too bright from reality). it was a leisurely, all day drive through little towns similarly adorned. a cheapo lunch at subway on the patio--yes, it was THAT warm--and moseyed back to maine. with snow predicted for the northern maine mountains any day, probably the old man will get hit by a month's time. the marigolds have breathed their last, so summer is really done. every good day from now on is a gift, in fact, every DAY is a gift, but better without snow.
more hexies in the works--yowza! they work up quickly...and a coral block to sew up today. it's another good day AND a sunny, warmish one besides. great day to sew, doncha know!
