It's November. November. What? When and how did the time get to this particular place? November. I am actually a fan of the cooler weather. My Billy knew this, so in the Spring of 1995 he placed a little diamond on my finger to keep me in the south. I don't mind. At least we get a little winter.
Anyhoo...some things I'm loving right now:
-afternoon runs where it's cool and the leaves crunch beneath my tennis shoes
-watching the dogs run and like little wild things through the leaves that have gathered on our lawn
-sitting on the screened in porch watching Auburn football
-starting the morning off with coffee in my dressing room reading quietly a devotional
-re-arranging and re-purposing my art studio space
-making Thanksgiving plans for 14 people at our dinner table
-preparing for an art show in a new city, new state
-my art classes in general are making me very happy. the lessons, the attitudes, the calmness of knowing I am where I am supposed to be right now is creating a gentle peace in my heart
-acupuncture sessions (which might be contributing to the above statement of calmness)
-new blog reads and instagram friends
The list could go on and on. Of course, I heart that you are here with me on this journey. I feel like the past year has been a bit rough. Between the mysterious illnesses and the marathon training I've been a bit off. But seriously, the morning quiet devotionals and my new found love of acupuncture I foresee some changes coming. And hopefully you'll be able to see it here. And in my art. Because I am about to bust to create. I've not felt this way in a super long time. So I welcome the cold weather and the warm ideas!
