where did the last week or so go??? busy shooting sessions,
designing storyboards and books, getting orders out, planning for upcoming events,
working in my studio trying to choose images to display-impossible, i love so many!
and still trying to come up with a sign that i love-ugh! oh yeah, busy. and i love this kind of busy!
but meanwhile, fall snuck in (yesterday) and dare i say i missed it? the actual first ‘day’ of fall.
was i that busy that i was truly unaware of it.
is that the theme of things lately? have i been so immersed in ‘things’ that i’m missing the best things?
i try to remind myself to stop and look up, and down and sideways.
just stop long enough to settle into the moment that is right now.
i guess i have my work cut out for me.
although i may have unknowingly missed the first calendar day of fall,
my internal fall clock surely knew…last night’s desert…on a whim.
so let me just say…let the baking begin!
i love to bake, my girls love to bake, we all love to eat what we bake. does that also mean
that the extra 5 (or so) pounds that accompanies it also begins?
so be it! it’s worth it in our books!
a little pear tart
by gina weathersby
Ilene - Oh yes, yes it is. The only thing that could possibly make this delectable looking tart look any better is perhaps a dollop of creme fraiche. By the way, aren’t you the multi-faceted one… amazing photog and baker? This new friendship just keeps getting better and better!
Tina - OH MY that is beeeeautiful! I can feel my hips spreading just looking at it…but who cares 🙂
Pascale - OH YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!!! I also love to bake. The good news is I’ve been too busy as of late to indulge which has helped keep me from gaining any ADDITIONAL lbs beyond what I already need to lose! HA! But that tart…. oh be still my beating heart. I think I know what I’ll be doing this weekend….. wanna share the recipe?!
Good luck with finding a sign you love, it will happen. I have faith in you. 🙂
gina - oh! i couldn’t agree more ilene! what was i thinking leaving out a dollip of creme fraiche!!!
and, yes, the hips are s p r e a d i n g!!!!!!
pascale, check your email;);)
Rama Desai - That tart looks very delicious!! I am so impressed! 🙂
And yes, fall is here!! I love the soulful warmth of this season. Earth goes into a deep wintry sleep with a final, glorious, riotous outburst of colours. The colours closest to her heart. Earthy! Love it!
gina - rama, how beautiful your words! a poet? yes, for sure.
athena - mmmm… you are super talented, my friend!
