As I was driving to the studio this morning, I happened to see this corn field. I wanted to walk down through it. But I just pulled over and took some pictures instead.
I so love this time of year. Haven't turned the heat on, but it is just around the corner. You can always count this part of the country for cold weather. It is inevitable. What is coming makes these lovely days of fall that much more precious.
Blue jean rugs were the order of the day today. Just yesterday, I sold the last two I had in the shop. I figured I should have at least two for the fiber show this weekend.
I read somewhere that you shouldn't take pictures with shadows right in the middle of them.
As you can see, I didn't pay that much attention.
Blue jeans are time consuming to prep, but the rugs are great; they wear like iron.
I quite often get blue jeans from people who want me to make them a rug out of their OWN old jeans, or jeans that belonged to their kids, or husband, you get the drift........
I had a dentist appointment this morning, early.
I couldn't help but notice a poster on the wall. It was "21 Suggestions for Success" by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
All the advice was good advice, and each suggestion was certainly food for thought.
But the first one stopped me cold.
It said: Marry the right person. This one decision will determine 90% of your happiness or misery.
I think that someone could have told me this, say, 30-40 years ago.......what WAS I thinking?
Well, if it is any consolation, I did figure it out eventually.
I guess I needed to do it my way, eh?
Don't ya just hate to hear that????
Yet it is so true.
But who can tell you when you are young and foolish, that you really ought to marry YOUR BEST FRIEND.
Yeah, imagine that bit of advice.
Anyway, MY best friend took me downtown tonight, to see what was going on .......big doings in a small town, you know the drill, I bet.
And we went to this wonderful new bakery, called The Chocolate Mill.
Need I say more?
