I found a lovely packet waiting for me from my ZNE buddy Tiffany. It was chock a block with ledger papers that she had sent as a gift. I have about sixty ideas of how to use these wonderful old papers and can't wait to get started! Thanks, Tiffany, you are most generous and it was lovely to come home to presents.
Autumn has arrived while I've been gone and it was dark so much earlier than it was just ten days ago. Most of the leaves have turned and the color was lovely to see, from both the air and from the drive home. I plugged in my branches with the little grain of rice bulbs that I found at Michael's a while back that I have arranged in Grandma's crystal vase in the dining room, and immediately it felt snug and homey. Nothing like some twinkle lights to brighten a dark, wet evening!
