The last couple of weeks I have been busy selling and shipping my calendars, and prepping for booked workshops. As a result, blogging fell by the wayside. I would mean to get to it, and poof the day would be over. With the change of months and seasons I will need to get back to my proven routine so as to keep up with the blogs I follow and keep on keeping on with all my creative and DIY projects. Should make for a busy fall!
The early color has arrived and been hit by the unexpectedly July like weather we had last week. It still feels more like September as a result, plus I guess I am maybe not ready for October, hence the title. But it is well and truly autumn and I will have to accept it.
Back in April I saw this scene and pulled over to get a couple of pics. In August when I drove by it again, it was all dried up. No boat and not even a mucky patch, and yet it rained a fair amount this summer. Maybe the stream got diverted, or it was from snow melt, or the owner is filling the area in, or the sandier soil just allowed the water to percolate away. It was such a nice roadside scene. Next spring I will make the ride again and see if it is back, or gone for good.
Would you want $200,000 right now or $250,000 in a year? It’s safe to assume all money is tax free. Hmmmm, I guess I would take the 200K now since next year is not guaranteed.
Is it more important to love or be loved? To be loved, that way you can “learn” to love others as a baby learns.
List things that represent abundance to you. Freedom, fresh air, water and food, nature, people to laugh with, good health, the ability to help others, work I enjoy.
What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Planning for maybe getting another studio.
It may not be a grand light that has a history of seafaring lives saved, it is just a humble light on a lake. Freshly painted and lit, beckoning the sunset as it turns to night. Guiding August out, and leading September in.
It is not yet the end of August and yet, Friday’s walk showed that fall is closer than it seems. When Joe and I turned the corner on the trail there it was, fall color across the field.
