for today :: October 4, 2010
outside my window. . . cloudy (made for wonderful walking weather this morning). . . & we might get some rain.
I am thinking. . . that this is going to be a very busy month! Four birthdays, Quilt Market preparations, & a few other milestones.
from the kitchen. . . coffee. . . so far. Just got back from traveling. . . & so a trip to the market is definitely a must!
I am wearing. . . my walking clothes. . . (it takes me a bit to change. . . I'm starting a bit slow today. . .)
I am creating. . . computer-y stuff today . . . patterns & an annual report for an organization I do some graphic design work for.
I am remembering. . . how much I love autumn.
I am reading. . . 'A Daughter's Dream' - by Beverly Lewis. . . (A sequel to 'A Mother's Hope'
I am hoping . . . that I will get all the things/designs that I have in my head - done before Market. (still hoping that!)
I am hearing. . . wind in the trees. . . don't think I would ever tire of that sound. . .
around the house. . . My suitcase ready to be put away (for a couple of weeks), a stack of dyed wool waiting to be cut & made into bundles for Sample Spree, & I'm thinking that I can officially put out the fall decorations.
I am going. . . to run errands & then get myself back into the studio. . . much to do!!!
one of my favorite things. . . walks on a carpet of fall leaves.
a few plans for the rest of the week. . . finish up pattern writing, get things ready for shipping to Market, stitching, stitching & more stitching!
from my picture journal . . .
Oh my last day on my visit to my brothers in Minnesota, we (my brother & his wife & two daughters, & me) started the day with warm yummies at Starbucks & then we went to a nature preserve near their home & walked a couple of the trails. It was the perfect way to end my autumn visit. . . (which will now become an annual event!). Thankfully, my sister-in-law, Jodi, had here phone with her & took this photo. It is now my screen saver, & a reminder of a wonderful visit. . . . Oh my, do I ever love autumn!
