When I took this photo I thought it was dreamy enough to be a study for a painting. It’s from a long-ago photo expedition to Germany and Belgium, taking pictures for a program my brother was working on. If this one had a title it would be “Somewhere in Bavaria” since I no longer remember exactly where we were. I just remember saying, “oooh, quick, pull over and let me take a picture.”
I have boxes and boxes of slides (remember slides?). And besides my own, I have boxes of Bob’s slides, and boxes of Bob’s father’s slides. The bad news is, the only ones I have a projector for are mine. There is a big sorting job in my future.
I think this next one is from the same trip, but since it was a while ago that I pulled it out and scanned it, I can’t be sure unless I go back to those boxes (not gonna happen today).
Fast-forwarding a couple of decades, here’s Sam in a dreamy landscape, on last year’s stopover in Iceland.
Now for a segue, proving dreamy is as dreamy does – yesterday (a holiday, yet) he came over and cleaned out my compost bins so they’re ready for the fall onslaught of leaves. It’s hard to believe that mountain of leaves from last fall has composted so well over the summer. Since I no longer have a traditional lawn, we’re using up a leftover bag of lawn fertilizer, a handful at a time, to speed along the process. All the credit for composting progress goes to Sam. I’ve delegated far too much since my last year’s incident with the yellow-jackets, and I’m vowing now to do better in future — no more wimpy yellow-jacket avoidance for me.
The acorns were falling so fast we needed hardhats. I’m going to be in big trouble when they start sprouting in the spring.

Yes, I wandered off-topic, but what do you think – do you have any dreamy acorn recipes?
