it's oh so quiet

it’s sort of become a tradition,
quiet upstate cabin trips every few months,
to get away from the commotion that is new york city.

some random pictures from the weekend.


 

currently listening to:
tony’s weekend playlist made me sad at times.

kissing a fool

makeshift sleds the next sunny day.


 

warmed up by the fireplace afterwards and played a bunch of board games circa 1970’s.


 

baked cranberry, chocolate chip, walnut cookies stuffed with bananas, marshmellows and oreo cookies.


 

but rain and i really took the cabin trip for our dogs.


 

nothing makes me happier than seeing henri pounce around like a bunny rabbit
with his face covered in snow.

weekend in the catkills

an every few months or so escape from the city noise.

gina and jenni.


 

i’ve decided, for halloween, imma dye henri orange; barkley from sesame street.


 

it was so dark at night that being outside surrounded by fireflies
felt like being surrounded by stars.

(don’t worry, i set them free.)
 

<3 dave, who had no experience in the kitchen, but was down to de-head and gut a slimy catfish for me.
 

rain playing fetch with the dogs.

currently listening to:
lots of billie holiday from my iphone speakers while lying on the dock of the pond.

adam‘s got a knack for figuring out songs when he hears them,
but he says, “it’s just chords.”

at one point during the trip,
we were alone on the front porch fooling around, playing random songs
and he improvised “tous les garçons et les filles” for me to sing along to.

[adam doesn’t speak french, he just likes to pretend like he does.]

weekend at the cabin

i didn’t feel like taking pictures, so you guys get a video instead.
