After that fiasco I luckily made it to work in one piece and the day continued to improve from there. Just after lunch time I received a phone call with awesome news. A ceramics class I was hoping to sign up for, which was full when I inquired, suddenly had an unexpected opening. And did I want to register? Why yes, thank you, I don't mind if I do. The day was definitely getting brighter despite the gray clouds and dreary dampness in the air.
Then there's all of you. What made me especially happy today was reading all of your comments on yesterday's post. I loved every single one of them. I suppose I don't have any special rituals to celebrate my favorite season either, aside from picking a weekend day early in the fall to replace my shorts, t-shirts and sundresses with turtlenecks, boots and coats. It is always feels slightly bittersweet when I put the summer stuff away. That is until the first day I pull on my favorite turtleneck. And of course the first time I decide a cup of tea sounds better than an ice cream cone. Then it sets in and I am able to accept the change and move forward happily enjoying the new seasons gifts.
Speaking of gifts...
Six of you lovely ladies... I thought it appropriate to make hearts (with pages from an old Shakespeare book that is beyond repair) and then set them atop my stash of fall jewels from yesterday.
They even look pretty folded and jumbled together... I wonder who the winner will be...
... a gentle stir by hand...
... and we have a winner!
Congratulations Odella! I will be in touch with you soon to arrange a delivery.
Your Happy Package is in the final stages of completion and will soon be on its way to you!
Have a wonderfully Happy week!
