Perfectly centered. Feline instinct.

A gift from the beer fairy!

Up you go.

Bathed in sunlight.

So helpful with page proof edits!

Research material.

Pasta time!

Seven Snaps! 10/6/12 - 10/12/12

Heading home.

They only cuddle when the weather gets cold.

Cider! Yes!

I spent a lot of time on Caltrain this week. Good thing I love public transit.

Another thing I love? Potato soup.

I'd love to have a bowl of potato soup on this stoop.

Landscape gazing. (Note: my doppelgänger?)

Seven Snaps! 09/29/12 - 10/5/12

Lady Alice apples!  A new variety to keep an eye out for this fall and winter.

Perfect lunch spot. (Rainier Fruit, Yakima, Washington)

Chardonnay grapes nearly ready for harvest

So long, Yakima!

I should probably know what mountain this is. Halfway between Yakima and Seattle?! 
Can you spot Randy Clemens
Harvest pizza. So good. No leftovers.

Rainier Fruit Tour: A Sneak Preview!

I'm still sorting through all the pictures from my recent trip up to Yakima, Washington to tour the apple orchards of Rainier Fruit Company, but I had to share this picture. This is Ron Wolf, one of the orchard managers at Rainier, and his big smile captures so much of what I grew to love and admire over this short trip. These people truly care about the fruits they grow and put to market—more than that, they genuinely love their work! More soon, and I hope you all have reason to smile as big as Ron today.
