All work and no play would make our time on Kowalski Mountain quite dull. We try to take time to play and to enjoy ourselves when we can.
When we arrived the field had a big patch of flowers. I’m glad I captured this early, they were gone by the time so we left.
Philip is headed to the shoot house to do a little hunting, his favorite way to relax in the fall. We built this together, read about it here.
I’m right behind him… taking time to capture the moments.
Plenty of hunting! This is the view from the tripod.
We’re sitting together at the Tripod. We have two stands here, a tree stand and the tripod. I’m on the internet… we only get signal in the mountain, not in camp.
Philip likes to watch the field, just in case a deer tries to sneak by.
This trip I brought my sewing machine. I’m making a baby quilt for our new granddaughter Harper Rae. When I started this project, I didn’t know she was a girl, so her quilt has a fall theme.
The block is called Indian Star.
While in Kentucky, I finished all 18 Indian Star blocks. The rest of the quilt I finished at home, I’m including a picture of the finished quilt below.
I found this lone flower standing in the field near the end of trip… doing its best to shine brightly as the weather turned cooler.
Ahhhh the chiggers have been so bad this year…. apparently there is a price for too much fun on the homestead.
