Still on the lookout for beautiful pumpkins. Easy enough as we get closer to the 31st, and so stunning on the right kind of blue sky day. It's a gray, soggy day here though. I know how much the folks in California would welcome this weather. Thinking of so many who lost their homes, their histories, their place in the world and hoping that the worst of this nightmare is past.
Blog-hopping around, I realized that my article in Cloth, Paper, Scissors is about to come out. You'll recognize the concept I think- and look up top in the right corner- an unexpected and totally wonderful surprise there. What a pleasure it was to work with the entire staff at the magazine- the nicest experience start to finish. I'm so looking forward to seeing a copy along with the work and articles of the other artists too.
My mother has gone home after a most delightful visit with us. I miss her- she's a fun one with a tale to tell about every day of her life- or mine. Staying busy with those deadlines and making Nicki's stew for a friend who is under the weather. (Where did that expression come from?) I do love the smell of something brewing-stewing in the kitchen. Listening to the sounds of the kids playing after-school football out there in the drizzly street, hmm, might just make a fire and get the basket of felt out. Simple pleasures we sometimes take for granted. Not today. Once again, I'm grateful for all. xoC
