snowflake / snowfall

L - iphone / T - iphone

This may be the only snowflake I see this winter. My mom has been crocheting these beautiful snowflakes all winter - she adds more to her collection every year. I love this design but she has many different ones. Because they are handmade, each is as individual and unique as a real snowflake. / i used this snowy weekend to fill some orders for the sami bracelets. i'm getting rather good at it if i do say so myself.

bean toss / cornhole

L - iphone / T - iphone

This week at work we are having games and contest to benefit MSK's Cycle for Survival. Today my partner and I are going on to the final round in the bean toss tournament. In addition to bean toss we have had a trivia tournament ($10 per team to enter) and "wear a crazy hat" day. Today if you donated $5 you could wear your workout clothes. That's not something I would expose others to but I will play bean toss (or cornhole as the southerns call it). / beating everyone at cornhole. my dad came to visit me and took me out to the famous The Loveless Cafe... delicious southern cooking.

who would imagine bean toss/ cornhole for both of us, in the same week, in different locations? crazy.

highlighted / in the light

L - iphone / T - iphone

I needed a change. I got my hair highlighted. I see that on top of my head there are spots that stand out far more than the others - sort of like the little birch tree that Taylor took a photo of this weekend while hiking. / pretty hike on a pretty day at deep well trailhead

knitting / dancing

Knitting is consuming my evenings. I think I'm going to have to set a time limit for this activity so that I can actually get something accomplished. However it is a nice way to relax after a days work. / these are my swing-dancing shoes. taking lessons tonight.

tolerance / patience

I'm not always tolerant of when Evee barks for no reason but when she stops and gives me those sad eyes I can't help but pay attention. / patience is a virtue. daisy's good... she waits patiently for me to take her outdoors

so much rain / such a dirty dog

We've had SO much rain this month. Saturday the sun was shining and the temperatures where in the 70s - what better thing to do than to go hiking. It felt so wonderful to be outdoors. / muddy happy dog

routine / habits

L - iphone / T - iphone

We're starting to get into some sort of routine around here. After the many preparations for the wedding and then Christmas it's a feeling of comfort to kick back and knit again - just because. (He can watch the all important football game if he wants to.) 
/ daisy and i are back to our usual games and it feels so right.

new year / new spaces

L - iphone / T - iphone

I'm starting the new year in a new office space. The location is very close to our other office and still high up but I will miss my Stone Mountain view. I've created a pretty relaxing atmosphere in my office by using lamp light instead of the overheads, but I feel like I need some nice artwork for the walls. / while home over break i raided my oma's basement and brought home some paintings for my new apartment. this is my gallery wall - i'm so very pleased with it. the table that my opa and uncle made is perfect too. now all i need are some photos to put in the new picture frames - i waiting on the one of me and mom at her wedding.


The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
