My Little Woodsman


Or rather Woodsdog.  While Dave and John mountain biked along a portion of the Rails to Trails project trail in the Poconos, Oliver and I went for a hike on the Glen Onoko trail.  It was a beautiful and very steep trail that meandered along a fast moving stream that led a very tall waterfall.

It has quite an intimidating warning sign at the base.

To give you an idea of the steepness, there were times I needed to hoist my little guy up some rocks.  Needless to say, I was glad he was wearing his harness and leash.

He's a little bold fella.

Here's a photo of the stream.  I love the flare the sun cast on my lens.


Here's a picture of the first level of the falls.  Very pretty.


But there's more!  This is the main falls.  Pretty high, but difficult to discern without a reference point...and Oliver wasn't up to cooperating.




After tooling around at the base of the falls (Oliver kept splashing leaves), we discovered a way to the top.

This was the cherry.  Such a beautiful view.


I would not have found it so challenging except for all the new fallen slippery leaves.  The leaves posed much anxiety on the way down when we "lost" the trail and found ourselves essentially slip n sliding our way down quite a distance.  It was almost a Bear Grils moment.  Oliver got quite anxious and actually was growling with nervous impatience because I wouldn't let him go when we were taking a ride down the leaves. I think he thought he could do a better job for himself.

Like I said, my little woodsman.

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

I created these this morning....just in time for making a few treats before the spooks come calling tomorrow night!
