We Cleavers are creatures of habit, and this is never more true that when fall begins. As soon as the leaves begin to change color, you can bet there's a good chance we'll be hitting the fairgrounds, picking apples, baking pies, and hiking Bradbury Mountain.
Since Mr. Cleaver and I had our first date there back in 2005, we've made a point of returning each fall we've lived in Maine, and so this year, LMC got to take her second trip, having been carried up last year. And truth be told, I carried her about 90% of the way this time too, without the benefit of a carrier this go around. But this year my budding geoloist was enamored with all the rock and ledge, but perhaps even more enamored with all the dogs on the trail!
And LMC was quite the trooper, as she got carsick on the way up (fortunately primarily on a waterproof jacket). We were spectacularly ill prepared, having no extra clothes and having forgot her sippy cup (and Steinbeck's doggy bags). But despite that early mishap, we had beautiful weather and a lovely hike. And LMC did look awfully cute in her new winter cap.
I turn 31 today, so to celebrate I'm offering 30% off all my self-published patterns* through the end of the month.

For those of you who read this blog on rss and for those who hadn't noticed, I wanted to let you know that the site now has two new pages: a Recipe Index and a Pattern & Tutorial Index, links to which can be found at the upper right-hand corner of the home page above the header.
Hopefully this will be helpful to those looking for specific projects or recipes!
