Sunshine


The weather here has been fabulous the last week or so. I wake up to sunlight streaming in my east facing windows in the living room. No one enjoys it as much as Zoot. He melts into a puddle of goo till the sun moves around the south side of the house, out of his reach. Then he goes out in the yard in search of a sunbeam. Oh, to be a cat.


Afternoons, after Math, reading and housework are done, I make my way out to my "barn" studio to play. At this time of the year, the sun pours in through the south window late in the afternoon. The sun is much lower on the horizon now. I love the way it warms the room, turning everything to gold. With the doors thrown open and Zoot wandering in and out and the leaves floating gently down off the trees, it seems there's nowhere I'd rather be. Peace reigns in the early autumn light, no matter what else is going on in my life.

Zoot is a sweetie! I used to live in upstate NY and loved the fall light and colors, but I couldn't live with the cold. I love our sunny, warmish FL winters.
Your studio looks like it would be fun to plunge in and be creative.

You have a 'barn' studio?! Oh, how wonderful! I want one too! One day when I have well... a barn. And I love the Victoria - is it a new issue? Aren't you glad they're back?

Maria,
Come deep January, and February, and March-It-Should-Be-Spring-Already!!!...I will be in full out envy of you! But on days like today, or spring, I enjoy the changing seasons.
Thanks for stopping by. How are your tiles? I must have a peek!

Stacy,

Want a "barn" studio? Just use the term very loosely! LOL Ask Debi. She's a regular here at the barn!
