Ever since I shot these, I have been on the lookout for a summer dress in these watercolor-esque verdant-golden hues. My quest is still to yield any positive results but I did pick up a scarf, earlier this week, that I have decided I am in love with :)

Hers is the one of the faces behind the sun-kissed, fresh, locally grown plums, peaches, apricots, berries, corn (of course), fragrant herbs......... ...that made its way to our kitchen last morning. When we first arrived here in the nation's food basket, we were told, farmers' markets are almost a celebration in Midwest. And let's just say, denying that is simply futile. Each Saturday morning of ours begins with a trip to one and I can still taste the home-made banana bread we picked up yesterday, and the locally made fig preserve we picked up last week, and those bursting-with-juice plums we can't get enough of, and those berries we scarfed down the minute we bought them..........:) Oh my aching tummy!!!!

With mounting gas prices, the title seems a little out of place, don't you think. But I haven't had a real chance to experiment with my camera ever since we came back from our trip to Colorado, so I continue to pay tributes to what I think was as close to Xanadu as it can get, for us the Kubla Khans on the road :)

If this makes you dizzy, then you gotta peep into my skull :) As the expectation levels at work rise, so does the nervous energy around moi. Weird, but I am beginning to learn a few things about myself I had no clue of. For once, I am sure I don't welcome randomness at work. I don't embrace wrong turns. And I don't think being organized is overrated.
