our neighbor to the right has a maple tree, and it drops the most beautiful leaves in our yard in the fall. i hope they never chop it down (something i wouldn’t be that surprised by, sadly…)

so much to get done in the next few days… we’re having thanksgiving here for the third year in a row. this time we’re going to barbecue the turkey. yikes! everyone we’ve talked to who has done it before says it’s so easy and really delicious. i hope so! i’m trying a few other dishes a little differently this year, and it makes me a little nervous. i’m making mashed potatoes and parsnips with truffle oil, instead of regular old mashed potatoes. and a watercress and sweet potato salad, with feta and toasted walnuts, found here. we have a nice mix of family and friends coming, and i think it’s going to be a fun one.

back to work…

  1. Beautiful colors on those leaves, Lena! It’s really leave turning time in New York now. I meant to go to Prospect Park this weekend for the leaves but didn’t get a chance….

    I hope I didn’t miss an announcement regarding your silkscreening class?
