a sheltering sky
What a wonderful, restorative weekend it was! After Thursday, I never left my house. I spent the entire weekend in full-on hermit mode, even turning down my husband’s offer to take me out for dinner on my birthday. All I wanted was to recharge, read, rest, start my holiday decorating, putter in the garden.
And that is exactly what I did. My husband and son cooked me grilled salmon for my birthday dinner, which, in my opinion, was even better than going out.
I spent the entire day Saturday in my garden. It was a glorious day for November, cloudy, but close to 60 degrees. My garden looks so much better now, although I had time to see, close up, how much work I will have to do in the Spring to restore order. Mother Nature wastes no time in reclaiming her bounty while your back is turned.
And this sunset on Saturday was a gift in its own right. How gorgeous is that?
I read four books. Yes, four. They were all fairly short, each around 300 pages, except for Woolgatherings by Patti Smith, which was only around 80. My son bought it for me as a birthday gift. I have to say, I had a very different view of Patti Smith before reading her recent book, Just Kids, and now this one has pushed that view even further. She’s a wonderful writer.
Now it’s time to get back in the saddle again, gearing up for the holidays, working, cleaning, caring, living.
Oh, and did I tell you yet that everything in the etsy shop is 20% OFF? Plus FREE shipping?
Well, it is!!!
