yesterday, in the spirit of the season (and in the spirit of joining c on an adventure) we went on a walk led by a uw phd to learn about lichens of seattle.
in a cemetery! creeeeeeeeeeepy lichens!
seriously, they were absolutely lovely, and even though i have appreciated lichens before, i didn't quite realize that they were everywhere.
and that they really like growing on headstones.
i admit, it was super rainy and insanely cold yesterday morning so i was slightly less than thrilled at being outside, but that just made the whole graveyard thing that much more atmospheric.
today, i celebrated halloween in my favorite way by baking up some pumpkin cookies with brown butter icing. these are delicious, trust me. and you can get the recipe here.
