Last year, Carolyn at Love Stitching Red featured an intriguing Norwegian painter, Kristin Vestgard. I found her soft colors and fine lines enchanting so I drew this tree-head girl. I wanted to look at her again today. I am crazy about September and this is my September woman. The trees are still full of green leaves here, but the cool air of morning is blowing. I have the butterfly wing shawl around my shoulders and my fuzzy Norwegian slippers warming my flip flop feet. The breeze rushing through the window smells clean. Isn't September sweet? She is so hospitable.
Candles are so fitting in the fall. Don't you love the smell when you strike a match? If a fire in the fireplace isn't practical, a candle is a great substitute. Candles are a simple joy, I think.
This big puffy cloud was pink for a few moments just Monday evening. The night time sky changes so quickly. We've decided it is time to put the flannel sheets back on our bed. I'm craving the scent of warm apple cider, buttered popcorn, smoky night air. I hear the crickets. Time to read The Cricket in Times Square, I think.
I discovered that affirmation means "to make firm" and I hope you experience a little affirmation today and will feel a bit more firm as you go about your day, giving away your good life.
