A walnut fell on my car. Went boom.
So now in addition to worrying that shelves filled with dishes will spontaneously jump off the wall toward me (refresher), I am also afraid to park under trees.
Hmmm…let’s talk about happier things.
Like how I’m jump-starting the winter with a new quilt project:
There are two similar quilts in my mental queue, and I hope to finish them all by April, along with a few other projects, since I’ve agreed to have a solo exhibit with my quilts. (No big deal…SAVE THE DATE! APRIL 5th!)
Also making me happy: our kitchen, and all the delicious things I’ve been cooking. Of course, I keep forgetting to pick up my nice camera, so here are some instagram shots of ham and lentil soup (made with help from my small group) and an apple pie.
I’m very sensitive to the seasons, and as the days have been getting darker and colder, I can already feel my spirits…cringing? So I’m trying to be gentle and gracious, to nudge myself forward while also remembering to care for myself well. Thankfully, that tends to involve making beautiful and delicious things. It’s a balancing act, and I’ve been getting slightly better at it each year.
