My plate is full and I cannot keep up.
Today and yesterday, I installed my 2nd panel for Marian University. Whew. Taxing event. But I had good help (Thanks MC and Holly!) and it is done.
2 down. 3 to go.
Came home to very rainy beautiful fall evening. The leaves were spectacular on the drive home. I looked up our peak last year and it came a full two weeks earlier last year. That was normal. Peak the last day in October is not normal.
We only have three trick or treaters. I dont know if they are tricking us or treating us. Or are we treating them? Or…. I never understood Halloween. It falls in the same category as amusement parks and parades for me. Maybe I don’t know how to have fun. That’s it. I’m no fun.
My mosaic project is a large project for me. Largest ever by far. My farm duties, studio work, normal chores are spreading me quite thin. I am thankful that the mosaic job is not a permanent add to my daily agenda. But am sure glad I have it. It is all my passions rolled into one. Art, God, and nature (The nature part is the fact that St. Francis, who the work is about, is a patron saint of nature. and I love him and nature). He is the bomb. This work is affording us to visit his hometown this coming Christmas in celebration of him, my work and Marian University. My job will end and I will be able to resume painting and creating at the pace I am used to. Everything I love to do will be given more attention. Including this blog. I have so enjoyed writing here. Many days are spent in solitude, which I love, but I also love being connected. This blog gives me that opportunity to connect. Especially to those I miss so much from the ol’ hometown. I am going to suspend writing until my mosaic is through so that I can fully pour myself into my work and not feel pulled so thin. I don’t even have any tomatoes put away for the winter the pulling has been so severe.
I will see you next year! I love you. I pray that God blesses us and keeps us until next year. And forever. He is so good I can’t stand it.
See you soon! I will miss you.
