Brown County

I took the day off from school & headed into the woods with some friends. It was an early morning–finally making it to the recycling center with a month’s worth of clutter, picking up our second week of CSA goodies (pie pumpkin, sorghum molasses, arugula, broccoli, bell & hot peppers, onions, sweet potatoes, apples & cider) & getting to the woods.

We hiked for a few miles, around the little lake & through the rolling hills of Southern Indiana, a place that is increasingly stealing my heart.

Yep, that’s us. Just a couple of kids trying to make a like out of loving the environment. And yes, that’s the picnic table I had my camera resting on, there at the bottom of the frame. But when you spend most of the day blowing off grad. school, who has time for Photoshop?

Tomorrow, I’m hitting the books & the food preservation to-do list: freezing apples & pureeing pumpkin until it’s time for holiday baking. I’ll also be thinking a lot about my parents, who’re traveling for their big 2-5. Congratulations! ❤

    I so need to visit to Bloomington soon. I had plans to come to B-town for a bike race this weekend, but those fell way through, and now I’m stuck with an ever-present need to see hills & pretty leaves. Arrrgh.
