Busy Weekend

Last night, we were fortunate enough to see Trace Bundy play in our little mountain town. Trace is amazing, if you haven't heard of him, you should check out his music. He calls himself the acoustic ninja, and he is indeed so.

Today, the Lake City Wine and Music Fest is rocking the town park. We live a block away, so I'm at home with the napping kiddos for a bit. The aspen trees are at peak color. (Yes, it's fall here already). 

Tomorrow, we're planning a family hike to see more of the fall colors. 

We keep thinking things will calm down now that the summer is over....but that has not happened yet. We're still enjoying the great music this town has to offer and it seems we have folks over to the house at least three nights a week. We're never sure how long we'll be here, but we sure love this little mountain town and all the great people here.

What we're growing,,,

1. Vegies

We have really reaped the benefits of our greenhouse and garden this summer. 

Tomatoes, potatoes, spinach, lettuce, sweet peas, carrots, radishes, onions, cilantro, basil, amaranth, sunflowers, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, serrano peppers, bell peppers, eggplant, corn, green beans.

My favorites: cherry tomatoes, sweet peas, basil...mmmmm

We made a lovely bruschetta with the tomatoes and basil that the guys brought home today. The greenhouse, visible from the road, has folks talking. Christian is going to build two more greenhouses this fall for some people in town. 

2. Our rug inventory

If you haven't heard, we have a small, but growing, weaving business. I've been up late these last few weeks making rugs for an Art show this month. Yes, we do custom orders. Yes, I'd love to make you one. Yes, we'll have a website soon.

3. Levi and his mohawk...the hairs are few, but the attitude is key

Levi at 3 months

Levi is by far the easiest baby we've had so far. He's happy when he's awake, he sleeps easily, rides in the car easily, loves to hike and walk (while strapped to his momma), likes other people to hold him, has a great sense of humor, and eats like it is a full-time job. He's pushing 16 lbs. He's tall, dark and handsome. Definitely has his momma's coloring (not sure on the eyes yet, but they are not blue). We are so blessed to have each of our wonderful children.  Although it was not our plan for last year...we are so glad to have a third one!!
