Thanksgiving Dinner

A truly homemade Thanksgiving dinner: green bean casserole from scratch (no canned soup here!), my own recipe for apple & sausage stuffing, sweet potatoes, garlic mashed potatoes with mom's gravy, cranberry sauce (recipe from the trusted Spice Cookbook), and a beautiful free range local organic turkey cooked to perfection by Michael. So thankful for sharing it with my loved ones, and having fun: walks in the snow at night, many monopoly card games, and listening to Alice's Restaurant!

Rose with Dew

No filter needed; found in a courtyard in Santa Fe, NM in the summer.

Nothing better than vegetables fresh from the garden - pulling carrots out of the ground, picking tomatoes off the vine...

Aspens & Rocks

 A moment of green along the Arkansas River this October amidst the fall yellowing...


 Jasper flakes returned to their rightful home.

 Catch & release: jasper and botryoidal chalcedony.

Aspens play an optical illusion when you see them clustered so close together.

Thankful for a day spent replenishing and cleansing the soul.
