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!

Wow!! Gorgeous Fall picture...had to look and see where you live! Our leaves are just started to change colours so everything is still quite green. I love it when everything is orange and golden!!
Take care!
