this life

Aren't grey pumpkins just the cat's pajamas? I'm so glad they exist.

I went down the way to get the mail and the crew moseyed along behind me. The dog sniffed and peed. Little Frankie Valentine squinted up at the rooftops where the crows where having some sort of heated conversation. The Bird smelled the neighbors roses, because she is a girl and this is what girls do.

And then we found the crunchy leafs. And we stomped on them and the sound was delightful. Better even than popping bubble wrap.

There were only bills in the mail.

The bug prevention man told me to watch out for black widows because they come closer to the house when the weather cools.

I fell madly in love with a dress. But the only size left was a size too small, but I bought it anyway. I'm being optimistic. Final sale. No returns.

I have been sharpening lots of pencils in my studio and sometimes, as I'm passing by, I stick my head in the room and breath in that wonderful smell of wood and graphite.

Life is happening. The minutes are adding up. I believe that if I don't enjoy this life I have, it is an insult to God.

On that note, I'd also like to say that I really love orange and grey together. So happy we have those colors aren't you?

Yes I like orange and grey quite a bit. I like the words you used here. Way to wordsmith those up. I decided on my outfit for Wednesday too.

Love the colours... we are all about spring here in Australia... so it's a bit less grey and a bit more pink... but they are all lovely. :)

Life is to be enjoyed... glad you are out crunching leaves and hanging with your gang...they are adorable.

Those images are brilliant! I love them and together in that way. Can I please use them and put them as link back to your blog? They just provoke a calmness and a kind of simplicity.

Your writing is also very inspiring and creative. What a lovely story of just living.
