A paco-vicuna at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival

This week marked the conclusion of vacation and re-entry into the workaday life. Mostly painfree, but I admit that I’m looking forward to the weekend something fierce.

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. As we were driving home from vacation, we could see a jeep approaching us with a cow skull tied to its grate. Unusual in Maryland, but nothing special, right? How about when it passed us and we found to our delight that the passenger seat contained a skeleton, so enjoying the ride that it had its hand hanging onto the rollbar?

2. Despite being in New England for Conn’s fall weekend, we opt not to go. Instead, we spend a Sunday afternoon filled with pumpkins, wool, hot cider doughnuts, bicycling, reminiscing, and laughter with Eri and Eric.

3. After our last night of camping, Rudi and I packed up the car and then he got a head-start on our trip to Keene’s Pumpkin Festival on his bike. Figuring I had most of an hour to myself, I pulled the car into the day lot and took my thermos of tea and my notebook to a sunny picnic table for uninterrupted writing time.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
