the other day I met a friend at University Village
to spend time with her and her adorable son,
and to do a little shopping.
Ravenna Gardens always has the most wonderful displays...
and their garden shed would fit perfectly in my backyard...
and their pumpkins and gourds were every orangish color imaginable...
and their plants' textures were amazing...
and of course Anthropologie had a cute little indoor artist's shack
with paint brushes and jars with paint spilled on them...
and lanterns made of canning jars.
and just look at this autumnal sofa -
I so want it to come spread its autumn cheer at my house.
the drive home was just beautiful
and since there was boat traffic at the Montlake Cut
and I had to wait for the bridge to open and let the boat through and then close...
well my handy dandy little camera took a snap through the sunroof-
just love my Subaru's sunroof, the best part of the car...
and there was more roadwork by Lake Sammamish,
but how could I complain with a view like this?
and knowing I just picked this book up at the library
and would get to read it when home.
seriously get this book from the library -
just put your name on the waiting list and wait
because you will.
it's that good.
with gems like this...
and this wise ole owl.
I am so cheery in this post -
I wrote it about a month ago and forgot to post it.
I have been sick with about the worst cold known to man or woman this week,
but I may see the light at the end of the tunnel
and I am oh so optimistic and keeping fingers crossed that it will be gone
by Monday (ya, right...),
or at least that I can fake it well enough to go to school
and do my TA thing,
and teach art,
and enjoy a birthday party for me and the teacher I work with -
so must get well, must get well.
hope this post finds you well and looking forward to the holiday season.
ye gads don't think I am there yet.
can't muster the idea with a mucous-filled head-
maybe it seeped way into my brain.
back to bed...
