Who painted the clouds?

Today, as I stared up at the vast openness that is sky I noticed all the clouds I'd ever seen in reality or in a dream, were staring back down to the dot that is earth.
I thought how peculiar these clouds should all speckle today's autumn sky!  So many personalities of vapor exploring together.   And I thought of all of history's artists painting their signature clouds over each other's.  Who painted that one or this one?
And I scrolled through old photos, only to see, I might be slightly obsessed with the curious beauty of something so boringly scientific.

Of Fire Engines and Marching Bands

Grey, cool Autumn days seriously delight me.   
I was the one enjoying my late morning tea to the sounds of sirens and trombones out my window.  That lady curled up in her window sill reading and watching with a bird's eye view.

I was the one wandering through the crunchy leaves looking for the perfect Fall shot.
Capturing the autumn feeling at a local pick-your-own farm.
Wandering through B'more on a crisp evening.

Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Halloween

Hot cider and pumpkins adorn my living room mantle and my heart.
I'm the one scouring antique shops and boutiques every Autumn looking for the next member of our Halloween family, despite announcing that I think I have enough.

Its a sickness really.
But...I don't think I need to get well.

My New DIY- Dids

This season has been a glorious time to be ... just be....

The air is finally a chill that feels like home.   Speaking of home-- that was our adventure last week.... Re-making it.

I came home one day to find Kyle (who, if you don't know, is wonderful) staining our hideous bathroom cabinet.  (Want a DIY-- get General Finishes Gel Stain)  New wallpaper and shower curtain and the room feels so much more .... well.... cute!    

A day or two before, I came home to find him outside sanding down a wooden box and shelf to stain.   Flipped on its side, natural legs added and I have a new mod record cabinet.   Old doilies and feathers make wonderful dream catchers.
So, while I'd much prefer to have flowers in my hair living out of an always rolling winnebago, home is peaceful and echoes our journeys.

Its the best month of every year.  The colours feel right, the smells smell right, the tastes taste right. 

Festivals and Re-decorating litter my evenings and sneezes and pencils fill my days.

This is what I am in October.
