Alexi and Abbott made it home safely yesterday late afternoon after a fun weekend at Camp Orkila. Cal and I spent the weekend relaxing at home, harvesting the garden, biking, watching the sun go down at a neighbor's. All felt right with the world as we sat down to dinner all together, for the first time in days.

You may remember that I enjoy participating in seasonal color weeks. I find there is something almost meditative about taking the time to look for and appreciate specific colors in the world around me. Today marks the beginning of an autumn colors week organized by Jan (look at the posts under my autumn colors week label to see last year's posts), and I'm participating again this year. Join in if you'd like, and let me know in the comments so I can stop by and say hello. Here's the schedule:

Monday: green
Tuesday: yellow
Wednesday: orange
Thursday: red
Friday: brown

Happy Monday morning to you.

Color week would be therapeutic for me: I tend to see too much grayness in this season.

It's so funny to think of green in the fall! Come to think of it, we're considerably more green right now than we normally are this time of year...thanks in large part to a healthy dose of rain before the weather started to cool.

I look forward to the rest of your color week!

Sounds like a neat idea. I will definitely try this on my blog this week. Something new and different. Thanks for sharing this.
Here's a link to my blog if you're interested:

Wow, those acorns are amazing! Thanks for participating!

Erin said...

What a great idea. I've no doubt your photos will be stunning, as always!

I have to tell you... I just love the photo in your banner. The yellow raincoat, the apple- it's a little bit of fall perfection!

Char said...

gorgeous shots - i really love the last one.

I love every picture in this set! I think that the importance of color is gaining us as we come fully into the autumn season, and the leaves will begin to fade away as gray days approach. What a great idea

Kwana said...

Happy Monday. Can't wait to see your colors! I love the acorn shot.

kari said...

I love your photo's. I want to play along but we don't have Autumn here!

This is a brilliant idea, and I love your green and yellow.
I'm also looking for colour this season, but I noticed this project too late, maybe I'll participate another time :)
Thanks for sharing.
