Outside my window...it is grey, and probably about to rain. The leaves on our maples are still green for the most part and have just started falling…
I am thinking...about next weekend, Canadian Thanksgiving and my BIRTHDAY !!! Mostly I am thinking about the logistics about travel, dog kenneling, where we are sleeping when we get there, where the turkey will be cooked, etc…
I am thankful...that my cruddy cold that lingered all weekend is easing off today and that I have a bit more energy to get some stuff done !
In the kitchen... Mother Mailhot’s kitchen is bare but I am dreaming of chili with tons of veggies in it, topped with sour cream, cilantro and lime.
I am wearing...a blue cotton nightshirt & flip flops.
I am creating...samples of “car jewelry” that I am making for my annual crafty gifts for the staff at my mom’s office, pages in my Creative Sistah Lori’s sketchbook, and a huge mess on my studio table ! Creating is messy in my world !
I am going...to the post office, to the grocery store (chili ingredients !!!), and then to meditation class tonight.
I am wondering...why the days seem to be flying so very, very quickly…it is almost scary…
I am reading...very little these days, other than Facebook and blogs. I am listening to “Something Borrowed” by Emily Giffin in audiobook format before bed.
I am hoping...I can work through is very achy neck and shoulder to keep up with production needed for crafts fairs, Christmas gifts and Rock Fairy demands.
I am looking forward to... doing a photo shoot of myself this week with a very special prop !
I am hearing...the hum of the computer and the distant roar of the garbage trucks. Quiet Monday morning.
Around the house...it is actually pretty tidy, other than my studio table, as David and I tag-teamed it yesterday and captured all dust kangas in the vacuum cleaner.
I am pondering...how it got to be 10:00am and I am still glued to the computer…again…
One of my favorite things...putting clean sheets on the bed and plugging in the twinkle lights in the bedroom last night. Cozy and romantic. Fall nesting, I think.
A few plans for the rest of the week: lots of stuff in the studio, lunch with Lois on Tuesday, a trip to the beach at low tide for some rock gathering and finally, a drive up to Montreal and La Conception for the long (my birthday!!!) weekend.
Here are some pictures I am sharing...
My two pages in Lori’s sketchbook for the month of September. Man, how that month flew !!! It is off into the mail today to you, Jennifer !
Okay, off of the computer and back to the studio table !
Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones !!
