I've still got a few more days of 'summer' until the Common Ground Fair this weekend, my annual mark of summer's end. Outside, we've been blessed with amazingly warm, summer-like weather, and many September beach days to keep me happy. But, slowly...I'm seeing some signs of the season change trickle inside. Our nature table this morning has a few red maple leafs scattered about, many fallen acorns and chestnuts, and new fall 'apple tree' paintings.
And another sign. A table full of projects at the end of the day. After spending nearly every night eating outside in the summer (one of my favorite things), the dining room table needs to be reclaimed for eating once again. It starts the day empty, but by the time it needs to be cleared for dinner, it's full of our projects du jour. Watercolor paintings drying, kids embroidery projects in progress, and mama 'work' projects too (13 months catch up on photos!). Whenever it feels like a hassle that our space is so multipurposed (i.e. small!), I try to remind myself of how lovely it is to be surrounded by our creative 'work' - and that we're truly living, breathing (and eating on!) a creative life.
