november 4

back door

It's a big day today. I woke up with a gnawing in my stomach, aware of the possibility and potential for bitter disappointment that awaits. Instead, I'm focusing on the flaming display of crepe myrtles outside my back door, the full glazed kiln that awaits, the beautiful, blue-skied, 75 degree day (hello, November in Memphis), the zinnias that are still blooming their heads off in my little garden, and the new friends I'm going to meet tonight to share our craft.

And I'm going to focus on things I can control, like re-mounting my whirligig that I didn't notice had fallen off the garden post (see lower right corner) until I loaded this photo.

I'm taking a deep breath and turning off the news now.

I understand! My stomach is all flip-floppy. I have never gotten to vote for a winning president. Hopefully my cowl will be dry by tonight so I can wear it. I will be closer to 7PM when I get to Chritiana's because I have to frost my cupcakes. (And those crepe myrtles are so pretty, I love the colors they change into)

we're still enjoying the color here too, but no zinnias!
