Jon Crispin's Notebook



The past few days have provided what might be the last warmth before the autumn ends.  Olive and I had a nice walk in the woods yesterday.


There wasn’t any water for her to mess about in, but she seems to enjoy rooting around in the leaves looking for mushrooms.


I never remember what this plant is called, but there are tons of them livening up the forrest floor.


The Amherst Farmer’s Market was quite busy today.  This is turmeric, and I don’t ever recall seeing it fresh like this.  I didn’t buy any, but did get some amazing fresh ginger that will go in the freezer.


Olive loves to go shopping with us and is so well behaved in town.  She has been a great comfort to us in the past couple of weeks.  The world has felt a bit topsy-turvy of late.

    Love seeing these pics, esp of Olive. Such a sad and unsettled time now and before us. Feeling a bit out of sorts… got home from SC fema deployment after 36 days out. Nice to be home but have thought I might just go to bed and hide under the covers for the next four years! My best to you and Cris. Happy Thanksgiving.

      Thanks Chris, You are doing such great work for FEMA. It is really difficult to know what to do now. I keep thinking that we all just need to be as creative as possible and figure out ways in which we can all contribute. Happy Thanksgiving and hope to see you soon. Keep me posted about your travels.

    Lovely to see Olive! I am trying to spend time with people who have good and kind hearts at the moment.
