I love fall.

Cooler weather, shorter days, apple- and pear-picking, the wearing of scarves and boots, the excuse to make more warming foods and drinks. . . .

Life is good.

Lately, I’ve been taking things slowly.  Fall must be savored and homemaking must be done, and working hard this summer just tired me out.

At the risk of employing a trite analogy, I’m now doing my life’s work–and it’s a marathon, not a sprint.  I’ve needed to give myself a mental and physical break from a lifestyle of daily panic.

Fortunately, refreshment comes in many forms.  Right now, switching my short-term vision for a long-term one is helping–so are bright fall leaves, freshly-roasted coffee, and spending more time with friends.  Getting out of town for a few days of pure fun with my siblings was an amazing blessing.

Back in my little studio, I am happy.
