flat rocks!





Me and Penny beagle, as I mentioned yesterday, were out and about at Cornell Plantations yesterday, our favorite hike. Fall Creek, which is a small river actually behind my house, flows down toward Cornell and Ithaca from our place and at the plantations goes over a small waterfall and onto a huge wide set of totally flat rocks, like a giant made a huge wading pool in the woods. It is the most gorgeous place, and people keep it clean. The water lever was very low, but Penny and I enjoyed it after a hot hike.
You will see in one of these pictures somebody made a cute set of hearts out of rocks--now that is the best kind of grafitti isn't it?

In other news, yesterday I DID get plenty of work done before spending the evening watching episodes of the Sopranos, like the pitchers here, and finishing my paint job up on the roof. Why am I up on the roof while the wife is out of town? Is that SAFE? That part of the roof is fairly flat, and it is so nice up there I started imagining a roof deck....you can see Spike in one of these shots telling me he would like to help paint.....

What a beautiful spot. The pitchers are lovely too... Careful on that roof, or you'll be eating pain pills and blueberries like some of the other pottery pals!

Good job to get some chores out of the way while the wife is out of town. When does she return?
