kinfolk table at elmwood
Two summers ago, Kinfolk came out to take some photos at Elmwood for this fall's The Kinfolk Table cookbook. I made some blueberry currant jam for the book and damn- don't you miss blueberry time? The entire perimeter of Elmwood's pond is lined with hundreds of wild blueberry bushes. I know I should be basking in December's holiday glow right now, but no. The snow here has turned to slush, give me goldenrod and horsefly bites any day.

I might ease into holiday excitement except for the fact that the Merricks already celebrated Christmas 3 weeks early. We made the dinner and did the tree and all that. No real presents because there is no stress like present stress. I see holiday decorations in the streets and candy in the stores and surprised that the holidays are still happening. Yes, the world spins without you. I did, however, treat myself to a new camera lens so I'm hoping that encourages me to capture and post more creative projects here. That will be a big present to myself, and I hope that you get some enjoyment out the bargain, too.
