We took a number of late afternoon hikes at the Bass Lake in the first two weeks of October. We were there for our usual fall vacation. The first two days were foggy and rainy because of the rain system the southeast had for two weeks. After that, though, we had some of the most beautiful weather we've ever had there.

They were rebuilding the heart ponds last year so it was great to see them this year.
The stream was very full.

This was the first year we'd ever seen crayfish in the heart ponds.
There were a lot of wonderful mushrooms after all the rain.
A lot has happened the last few months* so I haven't been blogging. However, a new, wonderful, Paperhand show can get me blogging again!
Here are some of my favorite photos from tonight's show. Shows continue on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings at 7 pm (and some matinees) at the Forest Theater in Chapel Hill - through September 7 - with performances at the Art Museum in Raleigh the following weekend. For more details, check their website.
Some of the Tiny Things
* Having a wonderful time being a Hot Box Girl in a community theater production in July and a not wonderful time with a partial thyroidectomy two weeks ago. I'm healing well, though (so far).
We've rented two different houses in Black Mountain, NC (near Asheville) for vacations. One of them is one of my favorites of all the vacation houses we've rented. The view is beautiful, the house is nice, it's not too far out, and it's filled with books.
This is my favorite room. It's wonderful to sit here, read, and look at the view. The're's a lovely cross-breeze when you open the windows.
