Dear Diary, Today I made a new video for the Wild with Style course that is set for November. I still have some work to do on it, and plan to do something more to it each day before the start date. I think it will get pretty rich by the time I finish. It is already pretty much done, but the idea is to make it even better.
Today is an easy day, lunch with a friend and a walk. This afternoon I’ll take some time to read. In August I started reading the Bible, the new testament, as Donnie Miller, queen/king of the Mama Mansour video has started a small bible study on Wednesdays at noon. I have been going since September and am learning a lot this book, that I am basically unfamiliar with. We brown bag lunch and he gives us a short lesson without any preparation from us. It has been lovely. Though I do feel a little odd eating leftover casserole as we talk about the verses. Never the less….
Yesterday I got my edition of “Uppercase ” magazine, a great magazine about design and handcraft that comes from Calgary so I devoured that and wished I had three more really great magazines to plow through. The other magazine I really like to get is East Coast Living, a design magazine with a maritime sensibility. As winter starts to peek around the corner I am thinking about trips to my favorite magazine store for a few treats. I am also thinking of some great new subscriptions. Any advice on great magazines that you receive? I would love to know.
So after all the hub bub of last week, my life has slipped back to mellow, and I need to create my own bit of beauty everyday. Visits, cooking, reading, making rugs, writing, and blogging. There is still time for a few long drives in the country yet. I also had my skates sharpened, but I do not know how to skate. I might go to the rink with a chair and try to teach myself, once again. I lpove watching the way people glide around on the ice. I think I am missing something.
This morning I picked a handful of nasturtiums after seeing them on Susan Black’s blog. It was a bit like the last of the summer wine. My they are pretty flowers. I will tell you all about Susan later in another post. She spoke at the workshop last week, and did a great job.
