farm treasure hunts and time with elle.

it is tuesday evening, the rain is falling, it has cooled down and i like it this way.
it is just elle and i here at home and we are filling our days with baking, drives, farm treasure hunts and berry picking. there has been debates about what to make for dinner, were to eat lunch. we have spend moments counting chickens and ducks, for people who might think i talk to myself listen closely and you just might hear me counting my feather friends. elle and i spend time at the library, then take our books to cafe were we drool over recipes in a pile of cook books. in the evening their might be a movie, like the lost prince or a card game. when it is time for bed you can find all of us, elle, the dogs, the cats and myself in my bed, elle with her book and me with mine, sometimes i take a moment between paragraphs just to stare at elle reading her book at the foot of the bed,  my heart takes a photograph and stores it for always.
* we are doing a farm treasure hunt, a little book filled with riddles that bring us to farms all around us, how i love visiting new farms, learning, exploring snapping away.

A farm treasure hunt- what fun! The picture of Elle with the scarf made me think of "The Girl With a Pearl Earring."

I'd love to find a little nook in the world where I'd feel this calm and content.
