Above: scenes from the weekend. The fall colors finally exploded. I painted a fireplace black, and started painting everything else white. Micah started clearing out the yard (but saved the last of the mums for me). We checked out the South Durham Farmers Market for the first time, and stocked up on the last of the summer's peppers, some baby ginger, fingerling potatoes, and kale. We visited my old stomping grounds to check out new pop-up shop Hatch - I got a bottle of Dish Whiskey, and wanted all of the Monsieur Fox pocket squares. We grabbed lunch at Pizzeria Toro (which unfortunately suffered a fire the next day, and is temporarily closed!).

This week, we're going to enjoy Micah's last birthday present: a pair of front-row center tickets to see Colin Meloy at the gorgeous, historic Carolina Theatre.
