weekend vignettes


early saturday morning found us hitting the little miami river in our kayaks. it was 62 degrees when we set out -- i think the coldest weather i've ever kayaked in. it was a 4-hour trip with some of bill's co-workers and we had a peaceful time out in the wild.



canoes all lined up and awaiting their trip upstream to the drop-off point.



today i spent a good part of the day in indiana visiting family. seeing amish buggies along the road is quite common. jenna and i saw two on a 5-mile stretch.


jenna was quite fascinated with this leaf that had been eaten up by insects so that only a lacy frame remained.

i hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Looks like lots of fun. You do have good times outdoors. Our weather this summer has been great for outside things. I can't remember another summer this nice in a long time.
Love the Amish buggy.

Julie, I love the banner. Purple and lavender are my favorite colors so it is special to me. I'm from Indiana. I guess I didn't realize you were close. I hope to get to see you someday. Aren't granddaughters wonderful?
